  •  A blanket claim is probably not warranted (1+ / 0-)

    which is why I was stunned that the FDA's rep claimed a single amino acid change couldn't have a health effect.
    considering that there are any number of counter examples - for example, a single amino acid change is responsible for sickle cell anemia.  And there are many more examples.

    But as far as in food products (as compared to determining biochemical functions of a living cell, which like sickle cell anemia is what you are referring to) are concerned, that claim is accurate.  At least I have never seen a counter example.
