Quantification of GMO
As a result of regulations (EC) no. 1829/2003 and 1830/2003, the threshold value of 0.9 % relative GMO content necessitates a quantification of the GMO to decide about the declaration of the food. This threshold value is a relative value referring to a particular ingredient in the food. If a food contains an ingredient with 1% soya content, a maximum of 0.9% of this soya content may come from genetically modified soya without triggering a labelling requirement. Addionally, the quantification allows the differentiation of low, unavoidable contaminations occurring during the process of production from larger contaminations with genetically modified organisms.
