The European Commission ‘GM Potato' to Be Used for Paper and Anima

The approval of the European Commission 'GM Potato' marks the first time in 12 years that a genetically modified plant has been approved for cultivation on a commercial scale in the European Union. The pulp from the starchy GM potato will be used for producing paper and as a vital ingredient in animal feed.

Although, it's great that Europe is using this potato as an alternative source for paper and ensuring that animal feed is comprised of vegetables but there hasn't been any news on it being utilized for fries and potato chips. Perhaps the citizens of Europe are still iffy about consuming a vegetable that has been genetically modified.
