FSANZ Calls for Submission on GM Canola Application
Sunday, 2017/09/24 | 06:04:29

The Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has called for submissions on an application that seeks to allow food from a genetically modified (GM) canola line that produces an omega-3 fatty acid. The GM canola developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and Nuseed Pty Ltd) was modified to produce the long chain fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the seed.

 

Mark Booth, FSANZ Chief Executive Officer said, "The applicant has stated that this canola line could provide an alternate source of DHA for food manufacturers in a range of products." He added that FSANZ has conducted a thorough safety assessment of the GM canola, which included a nutrition risk assessment and dietary exposure assessment, and has concluded there are no public health and safety concerns relating to this canola line.

 

Submissions will be accepted until October 26, 2017. For more details, read the FSANZ news release.
