    • Agricultural Biotechnology, Food Safety and Nutritional Quality for the Consumer 

      Unknown author (NABC, 1990)
      Increasing media attention given to food safety and food quality in the year of the first United States approval of a genetically-engineered product for use in food production has focused on the coming of biotechnology to ...
    • Biotechnological diagnostics for the detection of microbial contamination of food 

      Parsons, George (NABC, 1990)
      The emergence of biotechnology diagnostic assays has influenced food microbiology. Time to results have been shortened and the quality and universality of results has been improved by the current generation of tests. Tests ...
    • Biotechnologically modified animal Pproducts 

      Byers, Floyd M. (NABC, 1990)
      The primary challenge is to develop systems employing current and new biotechnologies which will allow production of specific uniform products from diverse animal production systems in a range of designer foods.
    • Biotechnology and food safety 

      Crawford, Lester M. (NABC, 1990)
      Biotechnology is a new technology that is entering the marketplace at a time when consumers are anxious about the use of technology in food production. Consumers want “natural” products that are free of synthetic additives. ...
    • Evaluating the relative safety of biotechnologically produced foods 

      Pariza, Michael W. (NABC, 1990)
      If the public worries about the safety of the traditional food supply, it will worry ten times more about the safety of new foods. But there is big future for biotechnology in the development of special foods for persons ...
    • Farmer concerns: Food safety, biotechnology and the consumer 

      Sorensen, A. Ann (NABC, 1990)
      Farmers are concerned about providing safe and nutritious food to the consumer. Revelations about pesticide residues and hormones in our food supply cause concern. The public lacks an understanding about modern farming ...
    • Food processing biotechnology 

      Harlander, Susan K. (NABC, 1990)
      Biotechnology could have a dramatic impact on the entire agriculture and food sector. It has the potential to reduce the need for agricultural chemicals; improve productivity, efficiency, and profitability of food production ...
    • Food related risks: A food scientist’s perspective 

      Hotchkiss, Joseph H. (NABC, 1990)
      The hazards associated with foods in general have been determined. Biotechnology presents few hazards not previously considered and in some cases could substantially reduce risks. Unfortunately, food products derived from ...
    • Food related risks: A nutritionist’s perspective 

      Nesheim, Malden C. (NABC, 1990)
      It is critical to recognize that we eat a varied diet, and that changes, whether through biotechnology or by traditional means, must be viewed in the context of entire food patterns, and not in terms of one food. Those ...
    • Food safety and quality for the consumer: Policies and communication 

      Foreman, Carol Tucker (NABC, 1990)
      Changes in the decision-making apparatus can improve “communication,” reduce value conflicts, and ultimately improve the pub­lic policies governing biotechnology
    • Food safety and quality: Assessing the impact of biotechnology 

      Munro, In C.; Hall, Richard L. (NABC, 1990)
      The science of food safety has the tools and the know-how to provide a rigorous safety evaluation of new products. If good science leads, fair regulation will surely follow.
    • Genetically engineered plant foods: tomatoes 

      Kramer, Matthew G. (NABC, 1990)
      Development and field trials of genetically engineered tomatoes
    • Government Regulation: Insuring Safety and Quality 

      Hutt, Peter Barton (NABC, 1990)
      A brief outline of the regulation of biotechnology across the board in the United States today. An important feature of this discussion is that its focus is not on laws and regulations for the issues of biotechnology, but ...
    • Many voices: Citizens and the issues of biotechnology and food safety 

      Taylor, Kenneth J. (NABC, 1990)
      Social science research indicates that the faster the pace of change, and the more complex the proposed change, the greater the resistance to that change by those who perceive it to be a threat to their security.
    • Potential economic impacts of agricultural biotechnology 

      Martin, Marshall A. (NABC, 1990)
      Careful evaluation of the likely benefits and costs of biotechnology can ensure the timely and reasonable application of these emerging technology developments in our society. This will require increased research cooperation ...
