Nanotechnology is the process of manipulating matter at the
atomic and molecular level. It has no place in organic food. Like genetic
modification, it is the antithesis of the organic concept. Canada amended its
national organic rules to ban nanotechnology in food production as a
“Prohibited Substance or Method.”
The FDA has just released its draft guidance for regulated
industries describing what to consider when determining whether a product uses
nanotechnology or nanomaterials. The comment period is open for 60 days. Please
tell FDA that nanotechnology must not be used on organic foods, or else those
foods must be stripped of their organic certification.
