Biotechnology has been used for many centuries in the production of dairy products (cultivated milk goods, cheese, processed milk byproducts) using either starter crops. The food industry has already benefited greatly from biotechnology. It has provided us delicious, nutritious, wholesome, convenient, stable and secure foods of high quality. As R&D projects proceed, biotechnology seems inevitable to have a growing effect on the food we consume. It provides enormous potential to increase the food variety and quality available.
