Accidentally Vegan: Let’s Do Organic Non-GMO Cornstarch!
Have you ever thought about where your cornstarch comes from? It never crossed my mind until this week. I learned a lot, and that’s why I decided to feature non-GMO cornstarch from Let’s Do Organic (Edward & Sons).
You’re probably wondering why we are discussing cornstarch. I mean, all cornstarch is vegan, right? As far as I know, that is true. I believe that all cornstarch is vegan. (If someone knows otherwise, please do comment on this article and share what you know with the community). However, even if it is technically vegan, most cornstarch is made from genetically modified corn. Yuck!
I was making a special Asian mushroom soup this week that required cornstarch, and I realized what a challenge it can be to find non-GMO cornstarch!
As I researched this product, I was happy to learn that the Let’s Do Organic product line is part of the Edward & Sons family of brands. The Edward & Sons brands make some of my favorite vegan products including no chicken bouillon cubes, to season rice, and organic black sesame brown rice crackers for dips. Soooooo yummy with olive tapenade! Anyway, I digress…
If you’re also looking for a non-GMO cornstarch product, I found the Let’s Do Organic brand at the Whole Foods in my area. And you can also buy non-GMO cornstarch online in multi-packs through Amazon with free Super saver shipping.
Thank you to Edward & Sons for providing high quality, non-GMO products!
