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.

Rice (Oryza sativa)

This chapter, prepared by the OECD Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds with Japan as the lead country, deals with the composition of rice (Oryza sativa). It contains elements that can be used in a comparative approach as part of a safety assessment of foods and feeds derived from new varieties. After some background on rice production and processing, nutrients and anti-nutrients are detailed. The final sections suggest the key products and parameters for analysis of new varieties for food use and for feed use. Note: This chapter is currently being revised by the Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds; an updated document on rice composition is expected to be available in the course of 2015. The updated version will be made available on the BioTrack Website at www.oecd.org/biotrack
