Food Chemistry Volume 153, 15 June 2014 Compositional differences in soybeans on the market: Glyphosate accumulates in Roundup Ready GM soybeans

Soybeans from different agricultural practices differ in nutritional quality. Organic soybeans showed a more healthy nutritional profile than other soybeans. Organic soy contained more sugars, protein and zinc, but less fibre and omega-6. VKM 17/12/14 Final health and environmental risk assessment of genetically modified soybean 40-3-2 (EFSA/GMO/RX/40-3-2) In preparation for a legal implementation of EU-regulation 1829/2003, the Norwegian Environment Agency (former Norwegian Directorate for Nature Management) has requested the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA) to give final opinions on all genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and products containing or consisting of GMOs that are authorized in the European Union under Directive 2001/18/EC or Regulation 1829/2003/EC within the Authority’s sectoral responsibility.

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority has therefore, by letter dated 13th February 2013 (ref. 2012/150202), requested the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) to carry out scientific risk assessments of 39 GMOs and products containing or consisting of GMOs that are authorized in the European Union. The request covers scope(s) relevant to the Gene Technology Act.

The request does not cover GMOs that VKM already has conducted its final risk assessments on.

Earlier this year, Monsanto commercially launched its Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans—a product undoubtedly attractive to soy farmers.

NATION OF CHANGE 03/08/16 3 Major Problems With Monsanto’s New GMO Soybeans

The new seeds not only promised higher yields, but it would be a new tool in a soy farmer’s arsenal to battle superweeds that have evolved to resist the herbicide glyphosate, aka Roundup. Xtend soybeans are genetically altered to withstand both glyphosate and an existing herbicide called dicamba. Healthy soy leaves (left) compared to soy leaves with evidence of dicamba exposure (right).Flickr, University of WisconsinBut in reality, the promise of Monsanto’s splashy new bean appears to be short-sighted, leaving farmers with the much worse end of the bargain.

Here are three reasons why. 1.

Annals of Agricultural Sciences Volume 58, Issue 2, December 2013, Genetically modified Roundup Ready soybean in processed meat

Seventy-two samples of processed meat products were collected from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) food market. DNA was extracted and analyzed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify the soybean lectin gene, and screened by GMOScreen 35S/NOS test kit for qualitative detection of GMO varieties on food, feed, and seed to amplify both 35S promoter and NOS terminators that present in Roundup Ready soybean by PCR. The positive samples for Roundup Ready soybean (GMO) were subjected to real-time quantification of GMO using TaqMan real-time PCR. The results showed that all collected samples were positive for lectin gene and 45 samples out 72 samples were positive for Roundup Ready soybean.

OVERSEAS 02/11/12 Paraguay: New Transgenic Soybean Pending Ministry of Health Approval

“We are waiting for the report by the Ministry of Health; which will, in turn, be analyzed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG) before its release to the market,” said Rafael Figueredo, responsible for the study at the National Institute of Food and Nutrition (INAN). Should all turn out as expected; the product will be used for the harvest season 2013/2014.

Figueredo explained that the gathering of information on the soybean event Intacta RR2PRO –resistant to insects and to the second generation of herbicide, plus an additional output – has recently finished. A report has been sent to the Minister of Health, Antonio Arbo, who has now to approve the transgenic material in the soybean. Source: Diario Última Hora.

Or Low-Saturate, High-Oleic Soybeans, Paving the Way for Introduction of Vistive® Gold Soybeans The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notified Monsanto (NYSE: MON) that the biotechnology consultation process for MON 87705, a key component of the company’s Vistive® Gold soybeans that produce a high-oleic, low-saturate, low-trans fat soybean oil, has been completed.

Conclusion of the consultation with FDA completes one of the key regulatory steps to allow for full commercial introduction of Vistive Gold soybeans. Vistive Gold soybeans, which contain the low-saturate, high-oleic trait will enable food companies to produce foods made with soybean oil to have lower saturated fat levels and maintain low levels of trans fat. Consumers and farmers will benefit from this product, which was developed with input from the food and nutrition communities, said Joe Cornelius, Monsanto’s global technology lead for food quality traits.

ISIS 31/05/11 UK Supermarkets to label GM Soybean ‘Sustainable’ ISIS Report 31/05/11 Irresponsible labelling of GM soybean by British supermarkets aims to deceive the public over the true hazards of GM crops Dr Eva Sirinathsinghji A string of British supermarket giants have signed up to the Roundtable on Responsible Soy (RTRS) including Asda, Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, and most recently Sainsbury’s.

This scheme will result in GM soybean being labelled ‘sustainable’ despite mounting scientific evidence of health and environmental hazards, and threats to global food security. The Roundtable on Responsible Soy (RTRS), first proposed by WWF in 2005 is a multi-stake holder forum on sustainable soybean production (see [1] Round Table on Responsible Soy a Green Wash, SiS 47). It consists of many members involved in the soybean industry including the huge multinational corporations Shell, BP, Cargill, Syngenta and Monsanto, the major GMO producer. The UK consumer will not be deceived by the ‘responsible soy’ label. References 1 Ho MW. 3 Ho MW, Cummins J.
