Confidence in U.S. Food Supply
Despite continuing media attention and focus on food concerns, consumers' overall confidence in the U.S. food supply remains high.

Food safety issues having the lowest concern were biotechnology and processed foods, with 1 percent each.

Labeling
Satisfaction with current information on food labels remained high in 2008. Only 14 percent of consumers mentioned information they felt was missing, with less than 1 percent specifically mentioning biotechnology.

FDA requires special labeling only when the use of biotechnology introduces an allergen, or when it substantially changes the food's nutritional content. A solid majority of those polled (60 percent) "strongly" or "somewhat" support the FDA labeling requirements for food produced using biotechnology.

Summary from the Asian Food Biotechnology Consumer Attitudes Survey
The U.S. results can be compared with those of a similar survey released earlier this month by the Asian Food Information Centre (www.afic.org). The survey commissioned by AFIC in five Asian countr
