Testbiotech comment on EFSA´s opinion on the assessment of genetically engineered soybean MON 87751 for food and feed uses under Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003 (application EFSA-GMO-NL-2014–121) by company Monsanto

Soybean MON 87751 produces two insecticidal toxins: Cry1A.105 and Cry2Ab2. It is the second genetically engineered soybean to produce Bt toxins that was assessed by EFSA.

Soybeans are known to be one of the major allergenic food plants. Bt toxins are known for their potential to enhance immune responses to allergens; therefore assessment of impacts on health from soybeans that produce Bt toxins deserve special attention.
