US: Regulators OK Healthy GM Soybean Oil
News Oct 28, 2009
The companies' SDA Omega-3 soybean oil was "generally regarded as safe" and could be used in food products, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Monday. The designation is given to foods generally deemed safe by regulators, although FDA does not require a scientific safety review.
The oil is the first Monsanto-developed product genetically modified for specific properties known to improve human health, though officials say there are others in the pipeline.
Omega-3 fatty acids are linked to cardiovascular and brain health benefits, particularly the EPA or DHA Omega-3 oils derived from fish, rather than the ALA type derived from plants.
