By Gary J. Muehlbauer 1 and D. A. Somers 2
1 Assistant Professor

University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN, USA.

ABSTRACT
All crops used in the production of beer, with the exception of hops, can be genetically modified (GM). While barley is being genetically modified for research purposes and will likely be commercialized in the near future, other GM crops such as corn and rice are in commercial production. This review addresses the impact of GM barley and other GM crops on the brewing industry. Specific topics include: (i) the history and status of plant genetic engineering technologies with emphasis on barley and other cereals, (ii) GM crops and traits currently in production and those that are being developed for future commercialization, (iii) concerns, risks, and benefits of GM crops including barley and crops used as brewing ingredients, and (iv) methods for detection of GM ingredients.
