Food Science in the News — A Primer on GMO Regulations

For those open to learning more about GMO regulations, the article “Understanding Global GMO Regulations” from Nutritional Outlook reviews the different factors that can complicate GM labeling. I highly recommend reading the “Labeling” section as the “Product versus Process” factor is something not a lot of consumers consider. The information under “Traceability” is also notable, as it highlights the problems that can arise from Process-based GM labeling requirements.

No matter whether you’re a product developer and/or concerned consumer, whether you participate in the Non-GMO Project or support the “Just Label It” campaign, it’s important to be informed about different categories and factors that need to be considered for an effective GM labeling initiative.
