Abstract in another language

This chapter discusses how novel foods are regulated in the EU, US, and elsewhere. It reviews some of the reasons novel foods might be regulated and how such regulatory goals can be accomplished. Regulation of novel foods is the policy maker’s reaction to the unknown, although what is novel today may not be novel tomorrow. Indeed, the novel food industry has grown immensely over the past decade due to the need to feed a growing world population while using less land, water, and other limited natural resources. Ultimately, policy makers have the difficult task of balancing adequate government oversight over novel foods without stifling innovation and creativity.
