Corn for the Atkins devotee? (Low carb, high protein GM corn)
"A team of University of California, Riverside researchers has developed a low-carb corn that they hope may someday feed the world.

The team, led by biochemistry professor Daniel Gallie, figured out how to genetically engineer feed corn to produce twice the protein and half the carbohydrates of traditional feed corn.

If their experimental corn can be commercially produced it could fortify the diets of protein-starved people all over the globe, Gallie said."
