Test Detects Genetic Modification in Food
As the abundance of genetically modified (GM) foods continues to grow, so does the demand for monitoring and labeling them. The genes of GM plants used for food are tweaked to make them more healthful or pest-resistant, but some consumers are wary of such changes. To help inform shoppers and enforce regulations, scientists are reporting in ACS’ journal Analytical Chemistry the first comprehensive method to detect genetic modifications in one convenient, accurate test.
