An essential resource offering informed perspectives on the potential implications of genetically engineered foods for the global food supply.

Genetically Engineered Foods, Volume 6 in the Handbook of Food Bioengineering series, is a solid reference for researchers and professionals needing information on genetically engineered foods in human and animal diets. The volume discusses awareness, benefits vs. disadvantages, regulations and techniques used to obtain, test and detect genetically modified plants and animals. An essential resource offering informed perspectives on the potential implications of genetically engineered foods for humans and society. Written by a team of scientific experts who share the latest advances to help further more evidence-based research and educate scientists, academics and government professionals about the safety of the global food supply.

  • Provides in-depth coverage of the issues surrounding genetic engineering in foods
  • Includes hot topic areas such as nutragenomics and therapeutics to show how genetically engineered foods can promote health and potentially cure disease
  • Presents case studies where genetically engineered foods can increase production in Third World countries to promote food security
  • Discusses environmental and economic impacts, benefits and risks to help inform decisions
