GE Canola That Produces DHA Passes Food and Feed Safety Study

Scientists from theUSAandAustralia recently published their work on the
food and feed safety study of DHA canola, genetically
engineered/Brassica napus/, which revealed its safety for use in human
foods, nutraceuticals oranimal feeds. This brings the DHA 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.

DHA canola is one of the first land-based production system for omega-3
long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids that produce a high level of
docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The vector used to produce its desire oil
profile contains the expression of cassettes of seven genes in the DHA
biosynthesis pathway and was designed to convert oleic acid to DHA in
its seed.

A full characterization of the DHA canola was done, which includes a
detailed nutritional analysis of the seed, meal, and oil as part of the
food and feed safety evaluation. The results showed that except for the
fatty acid profile, none of the other compositional analytes showed
differences when compared to their conventional counterpart. Fish
feeding studies were also done to confirm the nutritional value and
safety of the DHA canola. The scientists concluded that products derived
from DHA canola are safe to use for human foods, nutraceuticals, or
animal feeds.
