    Over 250 technical enzymes are permitted in the EU, most of them produced from genetically-modified organisms. There are, however, no well-founded, independent studies on their effects on health. Craft enterprises are calling for technical enzymes to be subject to the declaration obligation. The employees of such enterprises and EU citizens want to decide themselves whether they will produce or buy natural or high-tech bread, natural or high-tech fruit juice, etc.
