It’s unfortunate that many people still don’t equate good health with the food they put into their mouths. Chose Foods, however, understands that there may be a direct link between the quality of the food eaten and overall health and wellbeing. The body requires quality, non-GMO foods in order to operate at maximum efficiency, the same kind of foods that Chosen Foods supplies. Gluten-free Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is cold pressed and is one of the healthiest oil available. Packed with beta-sitosterol and Vitamin E, Avocado Oil adds a special flavor to salads and is valuable as a finishing oil in other dishes.
Chosen Foods Are Non-GMO for a Very Good Reason
Almost everyone has heard about GMO foods, but understanding what GMO means is critical to knowing why they may not be healthy. GMO stands for ‘genetically modified organism. This means that some scientist was able to graft the DNA from one organism onto another. For instance, the DNA of an insect might be attached to the DNA of a cucumber plants because the insect DNA might provide a measure of protection against a viral disease of cucumbers. The problem with GMO is that no one knows what the long-term effects might be. This is why Chosen Foods makes certain that their products have been certified as non-GMO, to assure that their customers will be able to have confidence in the safety of what they are eating.
A Naturopathic Doctor Who Never Practiced Founded Chosen Foods
Carsten Hagen had been born in Norway, but the 1960s found him in Canada and trying to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a naturopathic doctor. At the time, there were no schools in Canada who offered degrees in naturopathy, so Carsten came to the US to get his degree. Carsten had always been interested in foods and the effect they might have on the body, and although he never actually practiced after getting his degree, he used the knowledge he had acquired to put his dreams into action by founding Chosen Foods in Mexico. The philosophy of Carsten and Chosen Foods is that ‘food has the power to heal’, and Chosen Foods makes sure that all their products are non-GMO to provide cleaner, healthier food to their customers.
