genetically engineered foods / genetically modified foods / bioengineered foods


Explanation:
A Google search yields 1,320 for "bioengineered food; 18,600 for "genetically modified food"; 1,170 for "transgenic food"; and 14,500 for "genetically engineered food". I'd go with the numbers!

From Termium (which also provides "transgenic" but indicates that it is related to **animal** science):
