Scientists from Australia and the US have had a study published on the food and feed safety of genetically modified omega-3 canola, revealing its safety for use in human foods, nutraceuticals and animal feeds. Published in the Frontiers of Nutrition journal, the study shows results that bring the GM canola a step closer to being part of a solution to alleviate the high pressure in marine resources for the production of omega-3 fatty acids. Nuseed’s omega-3 (or DHA) canola is the world’s first plant-based source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, developed in collaboration with CSIRO and GRDC.
