That's why I buy my soy products organic whenever I can. USDA certified organic is a way to guarantee you don't consume GMOs. Same with corn.

I've found that a lot of meat replacements (not all) are made out of GMO soy--or at least the companies won't guarantee that it isn't GMO. They seem good but who knows what the long term effects are going to be. Soy is subsidized so you have to wonder if the food industry is just trying new ways to get soy down our gullets.

Do the meat alternatives contain hexane as well??? I've heard that they do....even the organic ones....what are some safe brands?
