Labelling of novel food derived from transgenic plants
Languages of publication
The first foods and food ingredients developed through genetic engineering have reached commercialization and more are nearing distribution. Canada and other countries proposed labelling requirements for novel food when health and safety issues were involved. Transgenic plants, like genetically modified microorganisms, are also used in food processing. In Rome, 1994, at the WHO and FAO conference, Canada and 143 member states enacted Codex Alimentarius, the international codex of labelling requirements.
