Changes to the way the US distributes food aid could help feed 800,000 more people abroad, many of them Syrian refugees, US Agency for International Development administrator Rajiv Shah said.

 

The changes come in a farm law signed by President Barack Obama last week, AP reported.

The legislation will allow Washington to make a small increase in the amount of food aid given out as cash or vouchers.

 

The Obama administration said the current approach when most food aid is grown in the US and shipped to developing countries is inefficient.

The meat was shipped to California, Florida, Illinois and Texas, the department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement.

#US : Fast Food Chain Sub-Way `Convinced by Food Babe’ to Remove `Asthma-Causing-Chemical’ from Bread”


#AceNewsServices says a `Blogger Convinces Subway‘ to remove `Asthma-Causing Chemical’ from bread.

The Subway fast food chain, one of the largest bread bakers in the world, announced Wednesday that it will remove a chemical in its bread that drew the attention of a health blogger. Azodiacarbonamide is a chemical used to increase elasticity in bread, and can also be found in products such as shoe rubber and yoga mats.

StopUsingAzodicarbonamide1The chemical has been linked to asthma and other maladies and is banned from human consumption in Europe. Vani Hari, the blogger behind FoodBabe.com, began her campaign against Azodiacarbonamideafter US First Lady Michelle Obama praised Subway’s kids’ menu.
“We are already in the process of removing Azodiacarbonamide as part of our bread improvement efforts despite the fact that it is USDA and FDA approved ingredient,” Subway said in a statement. “The complete conversion to have this product out of the bread will be done soon.”

#Russia : Considering Ban On `Restricting Import’s and Completely Banning `GM Food Production `for Domestic Use”


#AceFoodNews says a `Total Ban on GM Food Production Being Considered in Russia‘.

A group of Russian MPs have prepared a bill severely restricting imports of genetically modified agricultural produce, and completely banning its domestic production.

russia-gmo-foods-ban.siThe initiative is backed by Evgeny Fyodorov of the parliamentary majority United Russia and a group called Russian Sovereignty, which unites MPs from various parties and parliamentary factions.

The politicians want to amend the existing law On Safety and Quality of Alimentary Products with a norm set for the maximum allowed content of transgenic and genetically modified components. The powers to establish that norm go to the government and products with excessive content of GMO components should be banned for turnover and imports.

Currently there are no limitations on the turnover or production of GMO-containing foodstuffs in Russia. However, when the percentage of GMO exceeds 0.9 percent the producer must label such goods and warn consumers. Last autumn the government passed a resolution allowing the listing of genetically modified plants in the Unified State Register, but this resolution will come in force only in July this year.

The main sponsor of the bill, Fyodorov, said in comments to Izvestia daily that he wanted to make this norm zero for all foodstuffs produced in Russia. The draft bans the production of genetically modified organisms and transgenic products of plant, animal or microbial origin for their use in human and animal foods.

Fyodorov said that this measure was needed because international corporations could try to bypass the limitations on imports by launching GMO production inside Russia. He added that under the new bill businessmen still can register genetically modified organisms and conduct research, but not grow and sell them until a slightest doubt of their safety remains.

Professionals perceived the initiative differently. The head of Russia’s Organic Farming Union, Yakov Lyubovedsky, holds that the passing of the bill would show if the Duma can defend the country’s independence and the interests of population. He also added that GMO was an experiment on humanity itself and that the industry could do very well without genetically enhanced plants and animals.

The president of the Grain Producers’ Union, Arkady Zlochevsky holds the opposite opinion. He told Izvestia that the suggested measure would be extremely harmful for Russian farmers as they would be deprived of modern technology and their foreign competitors would be still allowed to export their goods to Russia.

If legislators decide on a ban, it should be complete, including consumption, but this is currently not possible, Zlochevsky noted. In addition the limitations would create a threat of uncontrolled and dangerous spread of illegal genetically modified crops, Zlochevsky noted.

The pro-GMO businessman also pointed out that the discussion of the problem should not be limited to the agriculture and food industries. He said that 70 percent of genetically enhanced materials were used in pharmacology and medicine, 20 percent were used in industry and only 10 percent of GMOs were used in agriculture and food production.

The bill will be submitted to the lower house in two weeks’ time and its authors claim that its chances of passing are very high.
