Let’s take ourselves into the science of genetics as we tackle 12 examples of genetically modified food. Science has taken us into improvements and realms of opportunity that we have previously thought impossible. One of these popular fields that have come to the surface and were applied to different aspects of our lives is genetics. Genetics is simply put, a study of the features and characteristics of living things. There has been some debate about the extent of the study and experimentation of Genetics. The field has really made significant progress over the years in improving our lives, from being able to cure previously helpless human diseases and loss to improving and ensuring the safety and prosperity in terms of our food.
Yes genetics has been one of the factors for the best food we’ve had today, from preserved and enhanced food like fruits and vegetables, to being able to protect and remove plants from parasites and unhealthy variations. We actually have a lot more genetically modified food in our lives than we expect. Now if you’re looking for other aspects of genetic modification, be sure to check out the list of the 5 fascinating examples of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
What types of food do you believe are genetically modified? Let’s take a look at the examples here in our list.
Soy is one of the products that have been modified the most, from having resistance to certain viruses to even accessing other plants for genetic implants. One of the more significant modifications done to soy is the removal and reduction of fatty acids and protein, especially since there are certain characteristics of their genetic make-up that produces unnecessary odors.
