Suntava purple corn now Non-GMO Project Verified

Suntava Inc.'s purple corn

Suntava Inc., Afton, Minn., announces that its purple corn is now Non-GMO Project Verified. Products bearing this seal have met the standards for avoidance of foods produced from genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

“Receiving the Non-GMO Project seal is an additional verification of the importance and value of our purple corn,” Suntava CEO Bill Petrich says. “We’re proud to be recognized and pleased to be at the forefront of advancing the cause of providing the consumer with foods that are naturally fortified, and safe.”

The Non-GMO Project is a nonprofit organization committed to preserving and building the nonGMO food supply. Chief among its goals is educating consumers, providing verified choices about whether or not to consume GMOs. The project, which has gained significant consumer recognition since it began in 2010, is governed by a board of directors that works with a collaborative network of professional advisors from varying backgrounds and sectors.

According to Suntava, its purple corn is an all-natural, gluten-free ingredient with an antioxidant level twice that of blueberries. It’s also versatile and highly nutritious and combats free radicals.
