IMMUNO GUM (Orange County, CA), the world’s first product designed to bring six key ingredients to support the immune system in chewing gum form, recently announced that all flavors of its gums have been officially certified by Gum Based Co. as non-GMO products.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs), are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered to increase resistance to common pests. Within the United States, GMOs are used in up to 80 percent of processed food, differing from most developed nations that have significant restrictions or outright bans on the use of GMOs. Additionally, “80 percent [of health or natural shoppers in the U.S.] seek out non-GMO products with 56 percent saying non-GMO was key to brand buying,” according to research by the 2014 Market LOHAS. IMMUNO GUM is excited to now be an option for the many customers searching for products that are free of GMOs.
“For those of our customers that are concerned with the use of GMOs, we strived to make IMMUNO GUM a non-GMO product so that they can feel even more comfortable enjoying the benefits our product has,” said Dr. Terry O’Neil, founder and CEO of IMMUNO GUM.
By becoming certified non-GMO products, IMMUNO GUM stays true to its claim that it is a “Gum with Benefits,” which includes other attributes such as being vegan-safe, sugar- and gluten-free. IMMUNO GUM strives to include the healthiest ingredients so that it will be a reliable product to choose when at risk or already suffering from a cold as well as providing daily health benefits, the company stated.
