The three major concerns most commonly raised are that they represent a potential environmental hazard, they may pose a health risk to humans in the longer term, and they will be very costly. However, given the right approach and information, consumers can be convinced to accept GM foods that provide specific health benefits. A study conducted by Purdue University revealed that consumers may be willing to pay a premium for particular GM foods if they are informed about the health benefits that they may receive from eating those foods (Lusk, 2003).

Both cases were associated with a corresponding increase in galactose and glucose content, thus demonstrating the enzymatic hydrolysis of lactose during storage in the mammary gland. Newborn mice suckling low-lactose milk from these transgenic mice displayed growth patterns akin to mice suckling milk from nontransgenic control mice, indicating that the nutritional quality of the milk from these transgenic mice was not significantly changed. 2 Milk with Enriched Antimicrobial Protein, Lysozyme Lysozyme is a widespread antimicrobial protein that is found in the saliva, tears, and milk of all mammals (Jolles and Jolles, 1984).

2002). This protective action of soybean-derived food products is ascribed to the isoflavonoid content of soybean. This has led to an extensive research effort to biofortify more widely consumed foods such as vegetables, grains, and fruits with isoflavonoids in order to enhance the dietary intake of these compounds and thus their associated health benefits. Genistein, which is the backbone of all isoflavonoids, is produced from the dehydration of 2-hydroxyisoflavanone, which may occur spontaneously or through the catalytic action of dehydratase.
