GMF are foods derived from organisms whose genetic material (DNA) has been modified in a way that does not occur naturally, e.g. through the introduction of a gene from a different organism. The technology is often called modern biotechnology sometimes also genetic engineering.
The potential benefit of using GMF technology is to enhance the nutritional values and yield of agricultural products and increase the productiveness of animals in terms of meat, milk, and nutritional value, and translate into a product with a lower price, greater benefit (in terms of durability or nutritional value) or both.
