One big misconception is that all natural and organic products are healthy, nutritious and free of toxic chemicals, 90% of the time it is true but there is that 10% that mislabels and is sneaky to slap on a “natural” label to fool consumers. Kashi is in that 10%.
Kashi is owned by Kellog one of the largest, if not the largest cereal company in the world. A lot of people are unaware that Kashi is a part of Kellog since they have commercialized that they are a “small company”. New investigations into Kashi have delivered some startling news; they are riddled with GMO’s and toxic chemicals.
Deception with Kashi is large and they refuse to come out and say they are a GMO company you have to search long and hard to find an ingredient list and that they are owned by Kellogg. I myself have done investigations into Kashi and I had to email quite a few times to get a full ingredient list. At this point comapnies do not have to list a full ingredient list on products which baffles me and leaves consumers confused, decieved and lied to.
So what is in Kashi???
“Natural” Kashi Golean Honey almond Flax was found to contain malathion in the wheat and chlorpyrifos and piperonyl butoxide in the almonds both which are prohibited in organics due to their neurotoxicity and hormone disrupting ability in mammals.
Golean Crisp! Cinnamon Crumble contains GM soy grits and protein, GM canola oil, GM corn flour, irradiated cinnamon and soy lecithin.
Golean Crisp! Toasted Berry Crumble contains GM soy grits and protein, GM canola oil, GM corn flour and soy lecithin.
All other Golean products contain similar toxins in their ingredient lists.
Kashi sources all of their grains from farms in the US. They do import some fruits from other countries, but the soy is primarily grown in the USA. Corn-based ingredients are also locally derived. Since 95% of Soy and 80% of Corn is Genetically Modified you can expect any non-organic product that contains either of these two ingredients to be GM.
