Identification of genetically modified foods – problems and unsolved questions

Issue 3 2007  •  4 September 2007  •  Jan Pedersen and Folmer D. Eriksen, National Institute of Food, Technical University of Denmark

However, since it is difficult to keep GM and non-GM plants materials fully separated during growing, transport etc., a threshold for labelling of GM foods was introduced.
