Lallemand has received non-GMO verification from The Non-GMO Project (NGP) for their inactive yeasts and yeast extracts. The non-profit organization announced in April that Lellamand met the NGP standards on preserving and producing non-GMO products. With the increasing North American demand for non-GMO products, Lallemand has taken the extra step to complete one of the strictest non-GMO certification programs currently available.

The global company’s range meeting the NGP verification contains whole cell yeast, yeast extracts and yeast autolysates. When preparing over the past year, Lallemand examined the methods used to prepare all substrates, inputs and processing aids used for yeast production. The NGP seal also adds more value to European customers since North American standards are more rigorous than European regulations. Lallemand Non-GMO verified products are vegan, gluten-free and certified Kosher.
