Society | November 2, 2006, Thursday // 00:00

There are foods in Bulgaria's market that are genetically modified according to a several-month research carried out by the public environment and stable development centre and by For the Earth Association.

Soya sauce and waffles that contain genetically modified organisms were found in the market of Bulgaria's seaside city of Varna.

The research showed that three out of ten randomly picked products from different Varna stores are genetically modified. The products were analysed by two independent methods in certified laboratories.

The analysis of soy seeds, beans, sauces, as well as of certain brands of chocolate wafers displayed presence of genetic modifications.

The exact concentration of the genetically modified organisms in the tested foods is still unknown. Ecologists refused to reveal the brands of the genetically modified products.
