Is genetically modified soybean vegan?

Genetically modified soybeans are a type of crop produced by altering their DNA through genetic engineering techniques. This modification can enhance the plant's resistance to pests, diseases, and environmental stressors, which translates into higher yields for farmers. These soybeans are commonly used in food products such as tofu, soy milk, and vegetable oil, as well as animal feed. Some consumers are concerned about the potential health and environmental risks associated with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and prefer non-GMO alternatives. However, the extensive testing and regulation required before GMOs can be approved for consumption suggest they are safe for human and animal consumption.

Genetically modified soybean is a vegan food ingredient.
