Wine is just made from grapes, right?
Well, the answer is a little more complicated than that.
These ingredients aren’t much of a problem, but there is a little extra something you’ll never see on the label: glyphosate.
That’s right, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s toxic Roundup herbicide has been found in all 10 wine sample tested by Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse. Even organic and biodynamic products tested positive for the chemical.
Syrah, coming from a biodynamic and organic orchard that was apparently never sprayed with pesticides, was found to contain .659 ppb while another organic wine contained .913pb. In comparison, a 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon contained 18.74 ppb of glyphosate.
