Complementing statement from EFSA on the application for authorization of food and feed containing genetically modified soy

Jun 01, 2021

The European Commission mandated EFSA to complement its original scientific opinion on soybean MON 87769 × MON 89788 (EFSA‐GMO‐NL‐2010‐85) considering additional information on the human nutritional assessment of refined bleached deodorised oil produced from the two‐event stack soybean (RBD GM‐oil). The GMO Panel concluded that the consumption of soybean MON 87769 × MON 89788 and their derived products, in particular its RBD oil, does not represent a nutritional concern in humans. A post‐market monitoring plan is recommended to confirm the predicted consumption and the application of conditions of uses considered during the pre‐market risk assessment.
