Re: Palouser?

The issue Shaggy isn't whether the USDA approves this or not, the issue is your customers ie Japan ect do not want to purchase GM wheat and they will source it elsewhere.

Wasn't trying to get under your skin Shaggy.

 

There is no approved GE (GMO) wheat on the planet.

 

Wheat is generally for human consumption and consumers in many places are concerned about GMO wheat (especially Japan). Corn and beans generally are not a big issue if approved, with some exceptions, although many ingredients are probably fractionated or made from corn products. I believe Japan imports corn and beans to be processed in Japan that is nonGMO for use in making ingredients there - but I haven't tried to keep up with these details.

    As I said in prveous post,quarentinning the problem seems short term plauseble.At the current rate of exchange,yen to Aussie currency,and the current value of the US dollar,it would seem that they would not want to drag their feet in to much dissbelief in a probbable resolving of the sitsuation!
