Administered by the Center for Food Integrity (CFI), the BestFoodFacts.org website gives the food-consuming public the opportunity to connect with food system experts to further learn about the many facets of food production, preparation, consumption and everything in-between.
Based on input from readers (submit your question here!), as well as national news stories, thought-leading publications and the food-focused topics being discussed on blogs, CFI staff contact University-based experts (majority are PhDs or RDs), conduct an interview and write up the post. The expert has full editorial control to change, add, delete and ultimately approve all content before it is posted to the website.
An online video posted on BestFoodFacts.org, explores the topic of putting labels on food products indicating whether they’re made from genetically modified foods like corn, soybeans, canola and cotton.
Those in favor of labeling say it’s a matter of “right-to-know.” Those opposed to labeling say it could invoke fear in consumers and offers no additional nutritional information.
