Continuing the very successful first edition, this book reviews the most recent changes to the legal situation in Europe concerning genetically engineered food and labeling. Due to the extremely rapid developments in green biotechnology, all the chapters have been substantially revised and updated.
Divided into three distinct parts, the text begins by covering applications and perspectives, including transgenic modification of production traits in farm animals, fermented food production and the production of food additives using filamentous fungi. The second section is devoted to legislation, while the final part examines methods of detection, such as DNA-based methods, and methods for detecting genetic engineering in composed and processed foods.
From the reviews of the first edition:
"This work promises to be a standard reference in the detection of genetically engineered food. I believe this work will find a valued place for any scientist, regulator or technical library that deals with biotechnology or detection of genetically engineered food organisms." James J. Heinis, Journal of Agricultural & Food Information

Knut J. Heller studied biology at the Westfälische-Wilhelms-Universität in Münster, Germany, gaining his doctorate in 1977. Since 1992 he has also been head of the Institute for Microbiology at the Federal Research Center for Nutrition and Food and an honorary professor of the Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel since1993. Professor Heller's research focuses on the micro- and molecular biology of lactobacilli and their bacteriophages, and the biotechnology of dairy product manufacture, as well as the biological safety of genetically manipulated starter cultures.Review:
“This book will be useful to anyone interested in novel foods and methods of detection.” (Reviewed chapter-by-chapter in Cab International, 18th February 2005)
