According to the source of genetically modified food, it can be divided into three different types as follows:

(1) Plant-based genetically modified food
The so-called plant-based genetically modified foods refer to genetically modified foods containing genetically modified plants as raw materials.

(2) Animal genetically modified food
The so-called animal genetically modified food refers to genetically modified food containing genetically modified animals as raw materials. Animal genetically modified foods mainly use embryo transfer technology to cultivate animals or animal products with fast growth rate, strong disease resistance and good meat quality.

(3) Microbial genetically modified food
The so-called microbial genetically modified food refers to genetically modified food containing genetically modified microorganisms as raw materials. Genetically modified microbial food mainly uses the interaction of microorganisms to cultivate a series of new species that are beneficial to humans.

(4) Special genetically modified food
Whether it is plant-based genetically modified foods, animal genetically modified foods, or microbial genetically modified foods, they must be eaten by us as foods that can fill our stomachs. In the end, this type of genetically modified foods can fill our stomachs, but the most important thing is. Yes, this type of food can also prevent diseases. Such foods are "vaccine foods".

Why need BALLYA GenCheck Test?

What is genetically modified food?

Genetically modified food refers to the genetically modified organisms strains obtained by the use of genetically modified organism technology (genetically modified organism technology refers to a new type of breeding technology that introduces foreign genes into the genome of a specific biological species and allows it to effectively express the corresponding product). Direct food or food processed as raw materials is called genetically modified food.

Criteria for the classification

According to whether the genetically modified food contains genetically modified source as the standard, it can be divided into the following three different types:
(1) A genetically modified food that does not contain genetically modified foods means that although the food is derived from genetically modified organisms, the product itself does not contain any transferred genes.

(2) Genetically modified foods do contain genetically modified ingredients, but their characteristics have been changed during processing, and the transferred active genes no longer exist in genetically modified foods.

(3) Genetically modified foods do contain active genetic ingredients. After people eat such genetically modified organisms or food, the transferred genes and the inherent genes of the organisms will be digested and absorbed by the human body.

According to the source of genetically modified food, it can be divided into three different types as follows:
(1) Plant-based genetically modified food. The so-called plant-based genetically modified foods refer to genetically modified foods containing genetically modified plants as raw materials.

(2) Animal genetically modified food. The so-called animal genetically modified food refers to genetically modified food containing genetically modified animals as raw materials.
Animal genetically modified food mainly uses embryo transfer technology to cultivate animals or animal products with fast growth rate, strong disease resistance and good meat quality.

(3) Microbial genetically modified food. The so-called microbial genetically modified food refers to genetically modified food containing genetically modified microorganisms as raw materials. Genetically modified microbial food mainly uses the interaction of microorganisms to cultivate a series of new species that are beneficial to humans.

(4) Special genetically modified food
Whether it is plant-based genetically modified foods, animal genetically modified foods, or microbial genetically modified foods, they must be eaten by us as foods that can fill our stomachs. In the end, this type of genetically modified foods can fill our stomachs, but the most important thing is. Yes, this type of food can also prevent diseases. Such foods are "vaccine foods".

According to the different functions of genetically modified food in food, it can be roughly divided into the following six types:
(1) Yield-increasing genetically modified food;
(2) Genetically modified food with controlled ripeness;
(3) Health-care genetically modified food;
(4) Processed genetically modified food;
(5) Highly nutritious genetically modified food;
(6) New types of genetically modified foods.

Advantages of genetically modified food

Genetically modified food has many advantages: it can increase crop yields, reduce production costs, enhance crop resistance to insect pests and viruses, improve the storability of agricultural products, shorten the time of crop development, get rid of the four seasons of supply, break the boundaries of species, and continue to cultivate New species, produce food that is beneficial to human health.

Disadvantages of genetically modified food

Genetically modified foods also have shortcomings: the so-called increase in production is derived from the environment, and if it encounters natural disasters such as rain and snow, the production may be reduced even more. At the same time, in the process of cultivation, genetically modified crops may evolve into farmland weeds; genetic drifting may affect other species; genetically modified foods may cause allergies, etc.

Safety evaluation of genetically modified food

The basic principle
(1) Equivalent with traditional food and food ingredients;
(2) Except for some specific differences, it is equivalent to traditional food and food ingredients;
(3) No substantial equivalence with traditional food and food ingredients

Fundamental contents
(1) Nutritional evaluation
Genetically modified foods are new varieties that are similar in appearance to gene receptors through the expression of foreign genes, therefore. Basically equivalent analysis of the nutritional composition and chemical properties of traditional food and genetically modified food should be the first research task.

In addition, nutritional evaluation can be performed by observing the feed intake and digestibility of genetically modified food by animals.

(2) Toxicology evaluation
Toxicological evaluation mainly includes evaluation of foreign gene expression products and toxicological testing of whole foods. The evaluation of foreign gene expression products is mainly through bioinformatics analysis.

Generally speaking, if there is no special abnormal reaction in the subchronic toxicity test of genetically modified food, it is considered that such food will not cause adverse effects on human health during long-term use.

(3) Evaluation of sensitization
The main reason for the allergy evaluation of genetically modified foods is that genetically modified foods contain specific proteins expressed by foreign genes, regardless of whether the protein encoded by the foreign genes is a known allergen or is related to the amino acid sequence of a known allergic protein. Obvious homology or allergic proteins in the protein family to which it belongs may cause allergic reactions to genetically modified foods.

The main methods of sensitization evaluation include comparison with amino acid sequence homology of known allergens, serum screening test, simulated gastrointestinal juice digestion test and animal model test. Finally, comprehensively determine the potential allergenicity of the protein produced by the foreign gene.

(4) Other evaluation
The safety evaluation of genetically modified food also includes studies on undesired effects, horizontal transfer of foreign genes, and the influence of intestinal flora. These are still in the scientific research stage and have not been included in the safety evaluation indicators of genetically modified foods.

The development of these scientific researches will deeply reveal the impact of genetically modified technology on the organism itself and human and animal health, and provide more comprehensive scientific data for the development of genetically modified technology.
Note: Be extra careful when using or eating genetically modified food, listen to expert guidance, and do not use them indiscriminately.

    Significance of BALLYA GenCheck Test

    The emergence of genetically modified crops has provided a scientific way to improve the quality of seeds, provided a control method for crop disease reduction, and provided remedies for disasters in grain harvests. In the final analysis, it has brought survival opportunities to human beings with food shortages. At the same time, it has also triggered controversies and challenges on the safety of genetically modified foods.

    While genetically modified crops bring huge benefits, there are also many disputes, such as the safety of genetically modified foods and their impact on the ecological environment. Therefore, the European Union, Japan, China, etc. have successively issued corresponding laws and management methods to implement mandatory or voluntary labeling of genetically modified foods.

    The European Union stipulates that foods containing more than 0.9% genetically modified ingredients must be labeled; Switzerland, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand have a limit label of 1%; Norway’s limit label is 2%; South Korea’s limit label is 3%; Japan’s limit label is 5 %.

    With the research and continuous advent of new genetically modified varieties, it is still necessary to in-depth and expand research on genetically modified food testing technologies and establish new, practical, high-throughput testing methods. Especially in the case of ignorance of the genetically modified background, it is necessary to improve the efficiency of screening and testing various candidate targets one by one.

    Conclusion

    As people’s voices for the safety of genetically modified foods are getting higher and higher, scientists are also increasingly studying the use of new homologous or closely related species’ dominant genes to transform and develop new genetically modified crops. The establishment of genetically modified food testing methods has brought difficulties, but this has brought a stronger guarantee for the edible safety of genetically modified foods.

    The BALLYA GenCheck Test provided by BALLYA can effectively detect genetically modified food residues in feed, food, medicine. Its simple operation, short detection time and high accuracy are major features of this product.
