(NaturalNews) The Taiwanese Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that the country’s new tracking codes have allowed it to determine for the first time that 97 percent of soybeans imported into Taiwan come from genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
In July, the Taiwanese FDA implemented new commodity codes to differentiate GMO from non-GMO soybeans. Analysis of the data collected since then revealed that nearly all imported soybeans were GMO, and that most of them were used to make cooking oil.
The new codes were in part a response to repeated requests by consumer organizations and legislators that the FDA implement better controls for tracking the importation, distribution and use of GMO foods. (Click to Article)
