We are big fans of the Vietnamese soup Pho and are going to attempt to make it at home. But out of concerns for GMO Rice Noodles, I thought I'd do some research to see if this is an issue or not.
I like to shop at a local Vietnamese Market and they have a great selection on this style of rice noodles. The ones I like to buy are often made in Thailand. The burning question:
Do they use GMO rice when they make these noodles? This question remains to be answered, but as far as I can tell, Thailand does not seem to keen on GMO. That is a good sign.
Another question, do organic rice vermicelli noodles exist? It seems the answer is yes, but I only found one place that is selling in the USA, and they are in Canada, and all at $7 a pound. Yikes!
There's got to be a better solution out there!
Maybe I will try making my own? But what a hassle!
I found this interesting youtube video of a woman making a Vietnamese style rice noodle with a potato ricer. Very interesting. That looks like a cheap and easy solution.
More later....the search continues.
