As previously mentioned, the USDA has created a tool to help regulated entities who are subject to the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard determine whether they are a regulated entity that must comply with the law. Find the link to the decision tree here:
If anyone comes up with a good supplier questionnaire to determine if a supplier's ingredients contain bioengineered foods as per the new National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, please post it here, or edit the one I started below.
Here's what I'm thinking based on the USDA's questionnaire (see link above).
List of Bioengineered Foods:
Apple (ArcticTM varieties)
Eggplant (BARI Bt Begun varieties)
Papaya (ringspot virus resistant varieties)
Pineapple (pink flesh varieties)
1. Are any of the ingredients or sub-ingredients that you are supplying on the above list of bioengineered food?
If yes, please answer the following questions.
2. Does the BE ingredient contain detectable modified genetic material? (If no, please provide testing results.)
3. Has the BE ingredient been subjected to a validated refining process that renders modified genetic material undetectable? (If yes, please provide supporting documentation.)
4. Is the BE sub-ingredient present in an amount less than five percent? (If yes, please provide supporting documentation.)
