Brazil has labeled GMO and US doesn't...

Brazil is a weird country as you know from Stephen Colbert's video here. BUT my big surprise when I was going to buy groceries there... guess what? I found GMO labels! Many of them in many products, from soy oil to puddings as you see on these photos.

Since 2009 if a product has more than 1% of GMOs it needs to have a label saying in Portuguese "transgênico". The letter T (as Transgênico) needs to be placed in the face of the box or bag in a recognizable size inside a yellow triangle.

The question now is... why the US doesn't have it in their products?

At least some moms can choose what they wanna feed their babies with.

And their kids as well. Potato chips and Doritos Cheese.

Vanilla pudding and chocolate pudding, all GMOs ingredients.
See the tiny (T) yellow label, it means GMO in Portuguese.

Maize (maizena) has the same color, but the label is there on the corner.

Special corn flour has the corn and the (T) as well.

Another corn flour and the dangerous (T) is there too.

Below the Rio de Janeiro big statue here it is the GMO label (T).

Soy (soja) also labeled as GMO (T).

I ended up finding a GMO free oil to fry some wings at home. "Livre de Transgênico" means GMO-free, or non-GMO in Portuguese.

Finally a good NON-GMO (livre de transgênico in Portuguese) soy oil.
