FORTUNE 14/01/16 Genetically Modified Potatoes Are Making Their Way to the Produce Section

The agency told J.R. Simplot, a potato supplier, on Tuesday that a variety of potato that the company has genetically engineered to resist disease is just as safe as any other tuber on the market, the Associated Press reports. The new variety has been engineered by Simplot to resist the late blight pathogen, which was responsible for the Irish potato famine and is still the most common pathogen in potatoes today. Resistance to late blight came from an Argentinian species that developed a natural defense against it.

"This will bring 24-hour protection to farmers' fields," Haven Baker, the vice president of plant sciences at Simplot, told the AP.

USDA 28/10/16 Petition to Extend Determination of Nonregulated Status to Two GE Potato Lines

Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) extended deregulation to two lines of genetically engineered (GE) potatoes developed by J.R. Simplot Company for late blight resistance, low acrylamide potential, reduced black spot bruising, and lowered reducing sugars on October 28, 2016. APHIS previously reviewed and deregulated these GE traits in other GE potatoes. APHIS prepared a plant pest risk similarity assessment (PPRSA), preliminary finding of no significant impact (FONSI), and a preliminary determination of nonregulated status that were available for a 30-day public review and comment period from September 23, 2016 to October 24, 2016. APHIS received no new information during the public comment period and prepared a final FONSI and Determination.

Idaho-based J.R. Simplot Co.' According to the company, the new potatoes will have reduced bruising and black spots, enhanced cold storage capacity, and a reduced amount of acrylamide, a potential carcinogen created when potatoes are cooked at high temperatures.

AP reports that the potatoes contain only potato genes, and that the resistance to late blight comes from an Argentinian variety of potato that is naturally resistant to the blight.

IDAHO STATESMAN 31/10/16 Simplot GMO potatoes are OK, says U.S. agriculture department

Department of Agriculture has approved commercial planting of two types of potatoes that are genetically engineered to resist the pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine. The approval announced Friday covers Idaho-based J.R. Simplot Co.’s Ranger Russet and Atlantic varieties of the company’s second generation of Innate potatoes. The company says the potatoes will also have reduced bruising and black spots, enhanced storage capacity, and a reduced amount of a chemical created when potatoes are cooked at high temperatures that’s a potential carcinogen.

“We obviously are very proud of these,” said company spokesman Doug Cole. The potatoes next must clear a voluntary review process through the Food and Drug Administration as well as get the OK from the U.S. The company says it expects those approvals in January with the potatoes entering the market next spring. Late blight continues to be a major problem for potato growers around the world, especially in wetter regions.

When Brazilian research scientists fed tiny pieces of RNA to young honey bees, they expected little to happen—certainly nothing earth-shaking. The RNA used is not naturally found in bees. Perhaps the scientists from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) missed this 2013 study when they recently approved potatoes and apples genetically engineered not to brown. To accomplish this effect, scientists at Okanagan Specialty Fruits and J.

Pommes de terre transgénique Amflora Une pomme de terre transgénique est une variété de pomme de terre (Solanum tuberosum) dérivée d'une variété existante génétiquement modifiée par transgenèse, c'est-à-dire dont le génome[1] a été modifié par l'introduction d'un ou de quelques gènes provenant d'autres espèces, ou dans certains cas de gènes préexistants modifiés. De nombreuses variétés transgéniques de pomme de terre ont été créées depuis le milieu des années 1980, soit pour des motifs de recherche fondamentale, soit dans le but d'augmenter leur valeur économique, en améliorant certaines caractéristiques agronomiques ou nutritionnelles, ou en modifiant leur composition pour produire des substances utiles à des fins industrielles ou médicales. En pratique seules quelques-unes ont obtenu l'autorisation de production commerciale dans certains pays.

CHEMISTRY WORLD 25/11/14 US approves low acrylamide spud

The approval means that the Idaho-based J R Simplot Company (Simplot) can now begin commercial planting of its new product, called the ‘Innate’ potato. Acrylamide is generated during the Maillard reaction when potatoes are fried or baked at high temperatures. Animal studies have found that acrylamide exposure increases the risk for several types of cancer, but the evidence from human studies – some of which have also linked the chemical to elevated cancer risks – is incomplete, according to the US National Institutes of Health. The new potato produces less of the amino acid asparagine, a precursor to acrylamide. Simplot, however, doesn’t seem concerned.
