Genetically modified food

A genetically modified food is a food product derived in whole or part from a genetically modified organism (GMO) such as a crop plant, animal or microbe such as yeast.

Genetically modified foods have been available since the 1990s.

The principal ingredients of GM foods currently available are derived from genetically modified soybean, maize and canola.
