This GMO Apple Will NOT Brown: Is That Really What We Want?

Soon after being sliced, a conventional Granny Smith apple starts to brown, while a newly developed GM Granny Smith stays fresher looking. If you reject brown apple slices, would you prefer fresh-looking ones that have been "modified"?

Food spoils for a reason. It's part of nature's (or God's if you will) way to protect us.

All these corporate and especially patented ways of producing profit from food (or phood = food + pharma) are killing us and the planet we live on. STUPID STUPID STUPID... but perhaps that's the planet's way of getting rid of us finally. :(

Oh, and just put a little lemon juice on the apple and it stays fresh. How freaking hard is that?

Grr...

ABSOLUTELY NOT! I mean why are we not investing in enviromentally friendly ways to produce food. And giving local farmers grants for non-gmo grown foods. Hiring people to care for the food like we care about sick people.?

So if you order a Waldorf or a sandwich and your apples do not brown...send it back!In fact, I will tell them upfront, NO GMO apples, because if they do not brown, it's going back to the kitchen.

So very true, Syd H. All I thought of when I first saw the article was...what is wrong with some lemon juice? It certainly adds a zing to my apples and they don't turn brown either and any citrus will do the trick. It doesn't really freak me out if the fruit changes colour a bit, that is just natural and perfectly normal. I could always tell the apple if it does not behave then I will send it outside during the -40 winter. Usually apples behave if they hear that one.

Why are we creating a bunch of food with little flavour, no benefits to health and covered in Monsanto and ilk pesticide 'juices'?

Good idea, Roseann D as long as they did not drizzle the apples with lemon juice like they should.
