    Wow, I was researching if there is glyphosate left in soybean and sunflower oil and discovered one other thing, that there is still quite some glyphosate left in refined sugar from GMO round-up ready sugar beats. We can assume the same thing for dessicated non-gmo sugar beets and glyphosate ripened sugar cane, which is most of it.

    The ammount of glyphosate left in refined sugar in this FAO study od GMOs is 0.24 PPM, which is more than 0.1PPM at which level glyphosate acts as antibiotic.
