GMO issues in Lecithin Regarding the provisions on genetically modified organisms (GMOs):
With the enactment of EC Regulation 1829/2003 and 1830/2003 the simple process of PCR tests (detection of GM DNA) is currently replaced by an Identity Preservation system (IP).
Thus running a PCR test – does not translate into a NON GMO guarantee for lecithins. In order to avoid GMO labeling the complete traceability system (from bean to customer) must be documented. Despite of many challenges faced by Farmers, Suppliers, and Customers the program has proven itself, as top standard for GM accountability.
