    Biotechnology has applications in four major industrial areas, including health care (medical), crop production and agriculture, non-food (industrial) uses of crops and other products (e.g. biodegradable plastics, vegetable oil, biofuels), and environmental uses. For example, one application of biotechnology is the directed use of microorganisms for the manufacture of organic products.   • In -The first food product of biotechnology (an enzyme used in cheese production and a yeast used for baking) appeared on the market. • In, farmers have been growing GE crops. • In , 7 million farmers in 18 countries—more than 85 percent of them resource-poor farmers in the developing world—were planting biotech crops.

    As interdisciplinary series on the application of modern biotechnological approaches to agriculture, forestry, and industry, Biotechnology in Agriculture and Forestry fills the need for a common meeting ground for researchers from diverse fields of plant ational experts describe the improvement of existing strains and the development of new ones from test tube to field and industry. This page book represents the proceedings of the FAO international technical conference on "Agricultural biotechnologies in developing countries: Options and opportunities in crops, forestry, livestock, fisheries and agro-industry to face the challenges of food insecurity and climate change" (ABDC), that took place in Guadalajara, Mexico.

    Food Industry Uses. A recent report on the U.S. market for enzymes indicated total sales of $ million in , 58% of which was in the food industry (Charles Kline & Co., ). Of the classes of enzymes used by the food industry, the proteases and carbohydrases account for most of this market. Biotechnology, the use of biology to solve problems and make useful products. The most prominent area of biotechnology is the production of therapeutic proteins and other drugs through genetic engineering.

Hefferon, in Reference Module in Food Science, Agricultural Biotechnology. Agricultural Biotechnology is the use of new scientific techniques based on our understanding of DNA to improve crops and livestock that are not possible with conventional breeding alone.

This can be achieved in part by modern molecular plant breeding techniques such as marker-assisted selection (MAS). These applied aspects are covered so that the students could take relevant assignments in the food industry.

It also highlights future needs of research on the various aspects of food biotechnology. The book includes topics like biosensors, biocolours, biopreservatives, probiotics, genetically modified foods and microbial : Paperback.

Biotechnology as a tool for the production of food. Biotechnology opens up numerous opportunities for the food industry. The targeted use of biotechnological methods can, amongst other things, help reduce the quantity and number of unhealthy ingredients in foods as well as degrade allergenic : Bettina Baumann.

Recently many advances in food industry represent great role of food biotechnology. GM plants and animals are used to enhance taste, shell life, nutrition and quality of food. The current book entitled Frontiers in Food Biotechnology aims to provide impetus to the emergence of new technologies positively impacting and revolutionising the study of food biotechnology.
