New Report Compiles 100+ Foods Containing Weedkiller Ingredient Glyphosate

As the lawsuits mount and more data comes out about just how dangerous glyphosate can be, it’s becoming truly terrifying to do something as simple as going to the grocery store. That’s because several rounds of testing by multiple independent organizations have detected varying levels of glyphosate in dozens of specific food products, including some of the best-selling foods in their categories.

Even the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s testing has detected glyphosate in a shocking amount of food samples tested (63 percent of corn products sampled and 67 percent of soybean samples), though the agency has not revealed the specific products or brand names implicated.

Still, we know from the various rounds of private testing that a huge range of very popular products that readers may have on their shelves right now have been shown to contain glyphosate. Below is a list of the specific food products that have tested positive for glyphosate, what levels were recorded, which agency ordered the testing and the date of the report. For ease of reading, we’ve grouped the products by their overall category; for instance, all beverages are listed together even though they weren’t all tested together or by the same agency.

We’ve included multiple rounds of testing commissioned by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), the Center for Environmental Health (CEH), Moms Across America (MAA). the California Public Interest Research Group (CALPIRG) and the Detox Project. We’re limiting the products mentioned to specific brand names so that potentially harmless products are not unfairly lumped in with dangerous foods.
