Choose rBST- or rBGH-Free Milk: Though cows are not (yet) genetically engineered, many are being injected with a genetically engineered recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) or recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST) to boost milk production.
The milk for DAHlicious lassi smoothies comes from cows free of bovine somatotropin, or BST.
And at Kessler's direction, FDA officials went to extraordinarily lengths to seek reasons not to approve biotechnology-derived bovine somatotropin, a useful veterinary drug, because Vice President Al Gore and his minions considered it to be politically incorrect.
Or look for dairy products that specifically say they are produced without BGH (also called recombinant bovine somatotropin, or rBST).
In this way he explains discrepancies in bureaucratic attitudes toward recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST, also known as recombinant bovine growth hormone, rbGH) a synthetic version of a protein produced in the pituitary glands of cattle that enhances milk output.
It is also called recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbGH) or recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST).
They get their BST bovine somatotropin, a growth hormone shots every day, though.
AMERICANS TOOK A GIANT STEP INTO the age of edible biotechnology last month when the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of genetically engineered bovine somatotropin (BST), a hormone that can be injected into cows to make them produce more milk.
Bovine somatotropin (BST), a naturally occurring protein hormone that enhances milk production in cows, can be genetically engineered to raise the output of a herd by 10 to 20 percent.
Bovine somatotropin, or bST, is a naturally-occurring protein produced by all dairy cows.
