Golden Rice

By: Sandeep Singh

What is it?

Golden Rice is a type of rice genetically modified for vitamin A deficiencies. The main vitamin A precursor is beta-carotene, which is produced in the Endosperm.

My opinion

I personally think that this GMO would be a great success in the food industry and as well as for the community. The reason why i think this is good is because it costs less than most vitamin A enriched foods and it is cheaper than other resources to produce. Also since there are barely any risks associated with the product, what more can you ask for! I would like to say i approve this product and hope to benefit the poor societies and make them stay healthy.
