The modified foodstarch in Jelly Bellies is made from Genetically Modified maize. Genetically Modified maize contains an insecticide (Bt) gene whose effects have never been independently tested for safety on humans or animals.

See here for more information about the lack of independent safety testing on GM maize, or here for information about what's wrong with Genetic Modification.

Other "GM suspect" ingredients include lecithin, made from soya, which may be Genetically Modified and glucose syrup, which may be made from Genetically Modified maize.
