Genetically modified fruit and vegetables

Genetically modified food - one of the greatest achievements of our time. Proponents of genetically modified foods indicate excellent opportunities to create new tastes, as well as problem-solving world hunger and opponents - fear unexplored effects on human health. There is no doubt is that some of the already established scientists genetically modified products look very intriguing! The word "gizyum» («graisin») came from a combination of "giant raisins» («giant raisin»). Strictly speaking, it is the raisins produced from a special grape, whose genetic code is altered so that the berries have become truly enormous. This experiment produced in the laboratories of the Japanese National Institute of Genetics. Taste of raisins in this has not changed, and you can eat just one berry.



Genetics crossed grapes with apple and got such a strange hybrid, whose name can be roughly translated into Russian as "vinogryabloko» (grapple). Or "yablograd" if you want. Size and shape of the fruit resembles an apple pulp and kozhiey - grapes, and the taste is an interesting combination of both. Source large amounts of vitamin C freely sold in stores.


Plums and apricots - lovely fruit with a recognizable taste. Their hybrid known under the code name "slibrikos» («pluot»). Obtained by crossing the genes of their "ancestors" fruit contains no cholesterol and sodium, has a pronounced taste and rich in vitamin C.


Citrus lovers no longer have to painfully choose whether to eat sweet tangerine or refreshingly bitter grapefruit. Strengths of both fruits of geneticists embodied in hybrid: the sea of ​​fiber, vitamin C, freshness, juiciness and sweetness with a slight hint of bitterness.
