The addition of genetically modified organisms to the food system has caused controversy, with sharply divided camps on whether the GMOs are safe or not.

If you are determined to avoid eating foods with GMOs, here are five tips to help you do so:

1. Look for the "Non-GMO Project Verified Seal" on food products. As part of the verification process, Non-GMO Project tests the ingredients in the products and they also "require rigorous traceability and segregation practices to be followed in order to ensure ingredient integrity through the finished product." The organization said it is the only one offering independent verification of GMO-free products.

2. Visit the Non-GMO Project website for a list of verified products and brands.

3. Become familiar with which foods typically contain GMOs. Daily Finance included canned soups, frozen foods and sweetened juices. According to Whole Foods, "The five most prevalent GMO crops are corn, canola, soy, cotton and sugar beets. They end up as additives in all kinds of packaged foods as corn syrup, oil, sugar, flavoring agents, thickeners and other ingredients."

4. Look for "365 Everyday Value Foods." All plant-derived ingredients in 365 Everyday Value® food products are sourced to avoid GMOs, says Whole Foods. Adding that foods containing meat, eggs or dairy "could come from animals that were given GMO unless the product is organic or non-GMO verified."

5. Whole Foods recommends choosing dry grains, beans, nuts, and seeds, which are typically GMO-free.
