Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Transgenic Crops, Volume 3

Common bean, Rice, Cowpea and Apple Compositional Considerations

image of Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Transgenic Crops, Volume 3

This volume compiles the consensus documents developed by the OECD Working Group for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds from 2015 to 2019. It deals with the composition of common bean, rice, cowpea and apple, four important crops for agriculture and food consumption worldwide. The science-based information collated here is intended for use during the regulatory assessment of food/feed products derived from modern biotechnology, i.e. issued from transgenic plants. Compositional considerations are provided for each species, including tables detailing the key nutrients, anti-nutrients, possible toxicants, allergens and other metabolites contained in the products. This essential information and solid data can be used in the comparative approach as part of the novel food/feed safety assessment. It should be of value to crop breeders and applicants for commercial uses of novel foods and feeds, to regulators and risk assessors in national authorities, as well as the wider scientific community. More information can be found at BioTrack Online.

Introduction to OECD work on novel food and feed safety

The OECD Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds was established in 1999, with the primary goal to promote international regulatory harmonisation in the risk and safety assessment of biotechnology products among member countries, by addressing aspects of the assessment of human food and animal feed derived from genetically engineered crops. This body was renamed the Working Group for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds (WG-SNFF) from 1 January 2017.
