Description: Have you ever thought how Dannon or Activia brands sold in market relate to biotechnology? Golden Rice is a variety of rice fortified with vitamin A. This was developed by plant biotechnologists to help kids from developing countries not have fatal diseases resulting from vitamin A deficiency. Every time you sprinkle the meat-tenderizer powder, do you know you are using biotechnology? The powder contains an ingredient that softens the meat that is made using biotechnology. Food producers use Food Biotechnology to produce new products with desirable characteristics such as disease and drought resistant plants, leaner meat, enhanced flavors, and nutritional quality of foods. If you find these topics interesting, then you should come and learn about this exciting field of applied science called Food Biotechnology in this fun-filled summer course.
