Ingredient Snapshot: SunCran Naturelle, an all-natural premium branded formula made with Fruit d’Or Cran Naturelle cranberry juice powder and Taiyo’s Sunfiber, has announced that it has been Non-GMO Project Verified. SunCran Naturelle blends two superior ingredients to support gut and urinary tract health, without added sugar. 

This Non-GMO Project Verification validates SunCran Naturelle’s quality and its compliance with rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance, including segregation and traceability to prevent contamination.

“SunCran Naturelle is the first-ever non-GMO cranberry juice powder to earn this distinction,” says Stephen Lukawski, director of business development and sales of Fruit d'Or. “Achieving Non-GMO Project verification for SunCran Naturelle adds another level of trust and transparency for Fruit d’Or’s and Taiyo’s clinically studied branded ingredients.”

Fruit d’Or Nutraceuticals is a farm-to table vertically integrated company, and the world’s largest grower, processor and supplier of organic and conventional cranberry and wild blueberry ingredients to the nutraceutical industry. Its portfolio of Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients also includes Cran Naturelle whole fruit cranberry powder, Cran d’Or conventional whole fruit cranberry powder, as well as its cranberry seed oil and cranberry protein powder. 

Taiyo had previously received Non-GMO Project Verification for Sunfiber and worked with Fruit d’Or to earn this verification, which represents the highest transparency about GMOs. “Our customers appreciate that Sunfiber’s Non-GMO Project Verification gives them yet another competitive advantage for their products,” says Scott Smith, vice president of Taiyo International. “Taiyo stands ready to assist all of our customers with getting their product certified, so that they may also use this Verification in their product labeling and marketing.”
