Much of the debate surrounding genetic modification has centred on food product ingredients, in particular soya derivatives, and the supposed inability to segregate GM from non‐GM soybeans. Protein Technologies International has, however, implemented a system, Identity Preservation, which ensures the delivery of non‐GM soy protein to its customers. The system covers seeds, on‐farm storage, planting, growing and harvesting, transportation, processing and distribution, with independent third‐party verification. It is, believes the company, a way of ensuring that consumers can obtain the health benefits of soy protein consumption even if they are actively avoiding GM ingredients.
