Sydney Nader & Katherine Norden, "HelloGMOs: A Pro-GMO Cooking Website"

Walking through the aisles of the grocery store, you may see many logos advertising anti-GMO, or genetically modified organism, products. Fear of GMOs, although unsubstantiated, is widespread in American society. Katherine Norden and Sydney Nader worked to assemble a list of recipes that use genetically modified food organisms as ingredients into a recipe blog with supplemental scientific material regarding the sourcing and benefits of GMOs. The website, manifested through the Wix website editor, contains breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and dessert selections that use accessible genetically modified ingredients. The website approaches genetic modification in food, which has often been demonized or referred to negatively, and scientifically simplifies the definitions, benefits, and concerns regarding genetically altered foods.
