Test can detect genetic food
A NEW test for detecting genetically modified (GM) food has been developed by a subsidiary of the food giant Rank Hovis McDougall.
RHM Technology of High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire claims the test can establish the amount of GM ingredients in food down to a level as low as 100 parts per million.
The test could help enforce new labelling laws to require retailers, restaurants and cafes to label products and dishes containing GM ingredients.
