Is it possible that conventional corn (not organic) be non-gmo?
I thought all non organic corn produced now is genetically modified, but when I look at ingredients for couple whole foods products I bought that are not organic, they use corn but the product is advertised as non gmo. Is my belief false or is this false advertising?

Yes non GMO corn is still grown. Herbicide and insecticide costs per acre are usually a bit higher than for GMO corn , but there is usually a small premium available when selling the crop to offset this.

Yes, it is certainly possible.
Probably 80-90% of the conventional corn grown in the US is genetically engineered, but there is some that is conventional-non-GMO corn grown to satisfy that market.

"all non organic corn produced now is genetically modified" that is NOT true.
