Would You Like To Taste GM Wine?

Scientists from South Africa are developing GM wine. For this purpose an application has been sent to the government for conducting field trials of GM grapes. In another application a former South African has applied for selling GM yeast used in winemaking. The GM yeast is expected to produce protein stable wines. Wine makers are saying that they won’t touch this wine. It will take some time before the wine is produced but it would not be released commercially but you would soon find GM yeast on the shelves. Consumer groups and environmentalists are objecting against the GM wine as they fear that it would lead to environmental contamination. Though there is an international ban on GM wine but scientists feel that this might change. Let’s see.
