Volume II of this series compiles the science-based consensus documents of the OECD Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds from 2009 to 2014. 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.

Grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor)

This chapter, prepared by the OECD Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds with the United States and South Africa as lead countries, deals with the composition of grain sorghum (Sorghum bicolor). 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. Background is given on sorghum production, uses and processing, followed by appropriate varietal comparators and characteristics screened by breeders. Nutrients in sorghum grain, silage and ethanol production by-products, as well as anti-nutrients, are then detailed. The final sections suggest key products and constituents for analysis of new varieties for food use and for feed use.
