May 8, 2014

Ingredion, Westchester, Ill., has published a new fact sheet titled “Non-GMO Ingredients—Move to the forefront of the non-GMO trend with Ingredion.” The publication explains how the company has one of the broadest portfolios on nonGMO ingredients for the food and beverage industry, including:

• Sweeteners—Reb A stevia, glucose, dextrose, maltodextrin, HFCS and polyols

• Texturizers—Cook-up and instant starches from maize, tapioca, potato, rice and sago

• Nutritional ingredients—A range of fibers, minerals and whole grain

The backbone of Ingredion's nonGMO program is its Truetrace process and enrollment in the Non-GMO Project verification system. Since 2004, The company’s Truetrace program has protected nonGMO purity via global, third-party-audited best practices for segregation and documentation of nonGMO maize. In addition to Ingredion’s maize-based products, the broad array of ingredients includes products for which GM versions do not exist, e.g. tapioca, or imports from affiliates in countries that ban production of GM crops.

“Ingredion has always believed in giving its customers a choice,” says James P. Zallie, executive vice president, global specialties and president, North America and EMEA. “With the growing interest in nonGMO consumer goods, we feel the time is right to communicate to the industry the strong depth and breadth of Ingredion’s nonGMO ingredients portfolio.
