DOCUMENT TEXT

Short description  Very few traditional foods that are consumed have been subjected to systematic toxicological and nutritional assessment, yet because of their long history and customary preparation and use and absence of evidence of harm, they are generally regarded as safe to eat. This ‘history of safe use’ of traditional foods forms the benchmark for the comparative safety assessment of novel foods, and of foods derived from genetically modified organisms.

This paper is aimed to assist food safety professionals in the safety evaluation and regulation of novel foods and foods derived from genetically modified organisms, by describing the practical application and use of the concept of ‘history of safe use’.
