Non-GMO protein powders may be more expensive than conventional protein powders due to the cost associated with sourcing non-GMO ingredients and ensuring that the product is certified non-GMO. However, the price of non-GMO protein powders can vary widely depending on the brand and specific product.
Some companies may charge a premium for non-GMO certification, while others may prioritize offering affordable non-GMO options to consumers. It is important to compare prices and read product labels carefully to determine if the added cost of a non-GMO protein powder is worth it for your individual health goals and preferences.
Overall, the cost of non-GMO protein powders may be seen as an investment in supporting sustainable and ethical agricultural practices, as well as potentially reducing exposure to synthetic pesticides and genetically modified organisms in the diet.
