Synbio Vanilla ice cream

Synbio and genetic engineering…..A new vanilla flavor, made from genetically engineered yeast raised in vats, could soon replace real vanilla from vanilla beans in foods from ice cream to yogurt. Synthetic biology (synbio) vanilla, made from an extreme form of genetic engineering, seems like science fiction, but it’s real.

If you’d like to keep your food from becoming “Frankenstein food” please join other Friends of the Earth in signing this petition!
