Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Transgenic Crops, Volume 1

image of Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Transgenic Crops, Volume 1

Volume I of this series compiles the science-based consensus documents of the OECD Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds from 2002 to 2008. They contain information for use during the regulatory assessment of food/feed products of modern biotechnology, i.e. developed from transgenic crops. Relevant information includes compositional considerations (nutrients, anti-nutrients, toxicants, allergens), use of the plant species as food/feed, key products and components suggested for analysis of new varieties for food use and for feed use, and other elements. These documents should be of value to applicants for commercial uses of novel foods and feeds, regulators and risk assessors in national authorities for their comparative approach, as well as the wider scientific community.

Animal feedstuffs derived from genetically modified plants

This chapter was prepared by the OECD Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds with Canada and the United Kingdom as lead countries. It addresses considerations in the safety assessment of genetically modified feeds derived from crops, based on the scientific issues involved. Sections include information on genetically modified plants used as animal feed, assessment of genetically modified feedstuffs, the fate of DNA and protein in animal feeding, animal feeding studies as part of a safety assessment, post-market surveillance/monitoring, by-products of industrial crops, and future genetically modified feedstuffs with the question of agronomic versus quality traits.
