FSANZ seeks feedback on GM wheat, 2′-FL

8th December 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

Food Standards Australia New Zealand is calling for comment on an application to allow the sale and use of food made from a genetically modified wheat.

The agency’s interim chief executive, Dr Sandra Cuthbert, said the application seeks approval to permit food derived from wheat line IND-00412-7, which has been genetically modified to provide drought and herbicide tolerance.

​Separately, FSANZ has also asked for feedback on an application to allow a new production method for a permitted oligosaccharide – 2′fucosyllactose or 2ʹ-FL – added to infant formula products.
