What are genetically engineered foods?

In Australia, the four main genetically engineered ingredients

are derived from GE soy, corn, canola and cotton. Australia is

currently growing GE cotton only (cottonseed oil is common

in deep-frying), and now GE canola, which will start making its

way into the food chain for the first time this year. GE soy and

corn are grown, processed and imported from other countries.

GE ingredients are commonly found in items like bread, pastries,

snack foods, baked goods, vegetable oils, margarine, starches,

thickeners, sauces, fried foods, soy foods, lecithin, sweets, soft

enters the food chain at various levels.
