The labelling of food products that contain new technologies have been carried out to ensure that consumers are well informed on the hazards and uncertainty of the technologies incorporated for foodExpand
Disclosure of Nanomaterials under Nanotechnology Product Inventory, Voluntary Certification, and Voluntary Labelling
Nanotechnology has revolutionised the food industry and flooded the consumers’ market worldwide with engineered nanomaterials (ENMs), creating concerns on potential risks towards safety and health.Expand


A comparison of the nutritional value and food safety of organically and conventionally produced wheat flours.
This study revealed that organic agriculture has the potential to yield products with some relevant improvements in terms of high quality proteins and microelements contents, while the reduction in contamination with toxic elements and mycotoxins may be accomplished. Expand
An overview of the last 10 years of genetically engineered crop safety research
The scientific research conducted so far has not detected any significant hazards directly connected with the use of GE crops; however, the debate is still intense and an improvement in the efficacy of scientific communication could have a significant impact on the future of agricultural GE. Expand

Consumer Risk Perceptions and Marketing Strategy: The Case of Genetically Modified Food
New technologies are hitting the marketplace every day. In trying to make sense of these new technologies, consumers perceive a series of risks and benefits of consumption and use those perceptionsExpand
Editor’s Choice: Evaluating the Potential for Adverse Interactions within Genetically Engineered Breeding Stacks1
When genetically engineered stacks are produced by combining two or more single transgenic events by conventional breeding, the potential for interactions between the products of the events that impact food and feed safety can be evaluated and the need for further safety assessment can be determined on a case-by-case basis.
