FDA Releases New “Feed Your Mind” Education Materials on GMOs for Consumers

Constituent Update

April 19, 2023

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released new “Feed Your Mind” educational materials to provide science-based information on genetically modified organisms (GMOs). “Feed Your Mind” is an education initiative launched in 2020 to help increase consumer understanding of GMOs and was developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The new materials for consumers include:

At the FDA, we continue to explore ways to meet the needs of a diverse consumer population, including making food safety and nutrition information available in a variety of languages. Other “Feed Your Mind” materials are available in Spanish, and we will inform the public when these new materials are available in languages other than English.

Funding for the “Feed Your Mind” initiative was provided by Congress in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 to conduct “consumer outreach and education regarding agricultural biotechnology and biotechnology derived food products and animal feed, including through publication and distribution of science-based educational information on the environmental, nutritional, food safety, economic, and humanitarian impacts of such biotechnology, food products, and feed.” More funds were provided through 2018 and 2019 Appropriations bills.
