Food Identity Preservation and Traceability: Safer Grains by Gregory S. Bennet

By Gregory S. Bennet

A realistic Roadmap to IPT Integration From child formulation and peanut butter, to E. coli-tainted peppers and salmonella-tainted pistachios, no nutrition product or technique of its construction is proof against dangers. And whereas those dangers may well by no means be totally eradicated, identification protection and traceability (IPT) structures provide help to make certain the resource and quantity of infection, thereby lowering the customarily lethal outcomes. With a center emphasis on grain, this encyclopedic reference records the state-of-the-science during the whole nutrition chain in either family and overseas markets because it pertains to nutrition security and economics. The publication presents a cohesive creation to IPT structures and summarizes the courses presently to be had, in influence constructing a conceptual version of IPT on the manufacturer point. Addresses the background, conception, and layout parts starting with an informative heritage of IPT, the booklet maintains with examples of IPT courses and criteria of reputable seed enterprises. It then offers a sampling of presidency, undefined, and corporate ways towards IPT structures in the course of the previous 20 years. For ease of use as a reference, so much chapters commence with a short description of the necessities essential to comprehend the chapter’s contents permitting readers to leap correct in, instead of having to learn chapters in sequential order. offering an in-depth figuring out of the complexity of IPT platforms, the principles they functionality lower than, and the way they're formed and converted, this useful source successfully demonstrates why IPT is a serious perform for nutrition defense.

Often the term “value-added” is used, especially to connote an economic aspect of a trait for the farmer, processor, or society. For soybean or corn farmers, the traits of interest when they purchase their seeds may include oil and protein content of harvested crop, harvest yields, drought tolerance, Roundup Ready, etc. Farmers hope to gain increased profits from greater yields or less use of pesticides. For grain elevators, the traits of interest may be in accepting yellow versus white corn, genetically modified (GM) grain versus non-GM grain, etc.

In short, the idea of sustainability, in its broadest sense, should include elements of environmental health, societal and rural development, animal welfare, food quality and safety, and human health issues, which may require protocols, tests, and audits outside of normal food safety mandates (Glassheim et al. 2005). 2 EU Social Agenda Within the EU, some see non-food safety issues or credence attributes as conflict of interests for society. This pressure is increased because of the tension between the expectations of the “citizen” and the “consumer” as two sides of mankind.
