If you buy 100% organic items or items with USDA Organic label on them, they ARE also non-GMO (not genetically modified). The USDA defines organic agriculture as one that preserves the natural biodiversity, supports animal health and welfare, uses no genetically modified organisms, is subject to annual inspections, and separates organic food from non-organic food.(1) The USDA organic label indicates that 95% or higher of product/ingredients in the product are organic.
Non-GMO means that, technically, 99% of the product and the ingredients in the product are non-GMO.
An organic products is also non-GMO.
A non-GMO product definitely does NOT automatically mean it's an organic product.
