Anyone here eat Kashi cereal? It seems they've been naughty...

Kashi has been outed by a number of "Green" food sellers because while the company advertises as being all-natural and healthy, the soy used in making Kashi products is genetically modified to resist Roundup, an herbicide.

Does anyone here eat Kashi? Will you keep eating Kashi foods now that you know they use genetically modified soy?

Kashi spends a lot of money on advertising. I am generally suspicious of companies that cannot thrive on word of mouth. I think that the soy issue is definitely against their claims of being all-natural.

I actually am not a fan of soy which is one of the reasons I stopped eating Kashi. Whereas soy is an easy protein source, that is ideal for health minded people, it is not a cure all that we should put in all of our food. They use it too much, probably because it is cheap... Add to it that they are using GM soy --- done.

I don't like Kashi products just because of their taste, but I've bought their cereal bars on occasion just for some fiber. Probably won't be doing that anymore now

Nope, never bought stuff from them because they're owned by Kellogg.

I only eat their Vanilla Island cereal. I think all their other products taste awful. I'm trying to get off sugary cereals, so I was gonna stop eating Kashi anyhow. It doesn't surprise me at all that they use modified ingredients though.

I've eaten the cereal and I don't care for it even when I thought the company was on the green up and up. It's alright to good tasting but the majority of they're products are very hard to chew and take the roof off your mouth or even make your gums bleed. Not just me my whole family agrees on this.

The problem with this is that, technically, they didn't lie. All-natural or natural are not regulated terms at all. Hell, you could call Cheetos natural and it would be true. Organic, on the other hand, is the regulated term that is subject to strict regulations.

Was Kashi lying? No. Were they deceptive? To the majority of their customers, sure.

Dr. Kellogg = a terrible man.
He essentially though masturbation was evil and circumcision was the only way to stop childen from touching themselves.

I do eat Kashi sometimes, but I try not to eat too much packaged food no matter how natural they are/claim to be.

That being said...I'm not against GMO's. To each their own!
