USDA - 2016 - Confirmation that low PPO5 potatoes are not a regulated article. USDA 28/10/16 Petition to Extend Determination of Nonregulated Status to Two GE Potato Lines. The U.S.
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. AP 31/10/16 US Approves 2 Types of Genetically Engineered Potatoes. BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The U.S.
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.

Idaho-based J.R. Simplot Co.' MODERN FARMER 03/11/16 USDA Approves Genetically Modified Potatoes That Can Resist Blight. IDAHO STATESMAN 31/10/16 Simplot GMO potatoes are OK, says U.S. agriculture department. The U.S.
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. IDAO STATESMAN 15/11/14 McDonald's rejects Simplot's genetically modified potato. IRT 22/04/15 Why Scientists are Worried about the GMO Potato and Apple. Jeffrey Smith The question that serious scientists are asking is: If we (or bees, or birds, or deer) consume the dsRNA in the apple or potato, can it influence how our genes work?
Will these genetically modified organisms (GMOs), eaten as apple pies, french fries, or whatever, change our development, physiology, and behavior? To ask food companies to reject the use of these GMOs, please sign the petition HERE. 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. FAS USDA 01/06/16 Salmon and Potatoes Recently Approved Novel Foods in Canada_Ottawa_Canada_5-25-2016. WIKIPEDIA - Pomme de terre transgénique. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.
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 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. CHEMISTRY WORLD 25/11/14 US approves low acrylamide spud. Acrylamide is produced in baked and fried foods including wheat, rye and potatoes © Shutterstock The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved the first genetically engineered (GE) potato variety designed to produce less of the suspected carcinogen acrylamide when cooked.
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. SLATE 08/11/14 Aux Etats-Unis, on devrait avoir bientôt droit à une pomme de terre transgénique potentiellement anti-cancérigène. Le ministère de l'agriculture américain vient d'approuver la culture d'une pomme de terre transgénique dont l'ADN a été modifié pour réduire sa teneur en acrylamide, une substance potentiellement cancérigène.
L'acrylamide est généré dans la patate lorsque celle-ci est frite, mais l'ADN de cette nouvelle pomme de terre –baptisée pomme de terre «innée»– a été modifié pour réduire la production de certaines enzymes. Cet OGM a une autre propriété: il s'abîme moins facilement quand on le transporte. Le ministère de l'agriculture a établi que ce produit ne menacerait pas d'autres plantes, et l'agence américaine chargée de la régulation des aliments et des médicaments (la FDA) est en train d'examiner si cette «patate innée» est aussi sans danger pour les consommateurs.
Une autre pomme de terre transgénique, créée par Monsanto, avait été commercialisée il y a plus de dix ans, mais ensuite retirée de la vente suite au manque d'intérêt des agriculteurs et des consommateurs.
