The Biotechnology Committee of the Food Control Services of Israel's Ministry of Health has released for public comments a proposal for regulations regarding the labelling of genetically modified corn and soy beans and their products. In their present form the regulations are opposed by some government ministries and by the food processing industry. In general, the regulations follow the European model but do not require the labelling of processed products if they do not contain genetically modified DNA or protein above one percent.

(For further details, go to the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service Report on Israel Labelling Regulations for Modified Corn and Soy Products - A Proposal)
