Coming your way in the not too distant future.

Quoted Text
SDA omega-3 soybean oil is a plant-based source of SDA, which naturally converts in the body to EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) omega-3 – one of two main omega-3s that has been clinically shown to promote heart health. This pipeline product would be the first vegetarian SDA derived from soybeans for use in food and beverage products in North America.


Monsanto will develop SDA soybean varieties and sell the seeds to its farmer customers. DSM Nutritional Products will have the exclusive global rights to brand, market, package and sell the SDA soybean oil to the food industry.

We, the public who purchase these foods that we "assume" are healthy for our bodies, are being outmaneuvered by giants like Monsanto who have no interest in our health or our families' health at any time.  

Soybean oil is probably in alot of food we eat.  

I recently called Whole Foods about the shelled Edamame beans I buy and the manager of frozen foods assured me that this particular product (that can be purchased in the regular grocery store also) is NON GMO.  

If Monsanto somehow slips soybean oil that is GMO under the radar and into the food industry how are we going to know that?  I can't grow my own soybeans because I don't have the space or soil.

This issue has been ongoing for many years and I can see that it will continue.  Labeling would help a little bit (or alot) and buying certified organic products, I hope, would also help.  But not everyone can do that.

If they disguise what is really in the product what next!

This could actually be a very good thing if we kill the oceans...

Now as far as Monsanto's business practices, I hope there is a hell for them.

Nope, not coming MY way! Only one of the 4 of us can have soy, so I don't buy anything containing soy (except wheat-free tamari.)

Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is the parent in the omega-3 family and can be found predominantly in plant sources such as flaxseeds, hemp seeds, walnuts and dark green leafy vegetables. This short-chain fatty acid is considered an essential nutrient because our body cannot produce it on its own. Being the head of the family, ALA can technically be converted into other long-chain omega-3 fats such as EPA and DHA.
But in real life, studies found that the ALA conversion rate in the body is dismally low. In fact, only about 1% of ALA is converted to EPA and negligible amount is turned into DHA. The conversion of ALA is even lower if your intake of omega-6 fats is high. A more direct and efficient way to boost your levels of long-chain omega-3 fats, as research has found, is by taking EPA and DHA-rich foods or supplements.

I just wonder how they are going to get around this fact.
