The United States, where most of our ingredients are sourced, has accepted and embraced the use of bioengineering. Bioengineering is a way of cultivating seeds for heartier plant-life when growing food. As the world’s population gets bigger, food producers are working to increase their crops while reducing wasted food from drought, pests and transportation. Bioengineering helps with all of that. This method of farming has been around for more than 30 years and is currently in use worldwide for its success in contributing to both environmental issues and food safety.
