Ingredient Snapshot: Six Pectin products from TIC Gums now carry the Non-GMO Project Verified seal. According to the Non-GMO Project website, “the Non-GMO Project Verified seal gives shoppers the assurance that a product has completed a comprehensive third-party verification for compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard.”

With the addition of the new Non-GMO Project Verified seals on Pectin products, TIC Gums now offers 30 products that carry the seal.

TIC Gums proudly adds six newly verified pectin products:

  • TIC Pretested Apple Pectin 1500
  • TIC Pretested Apple Pectin AM 800 
  • TIC Pretested Apple Pectin HM Rapid Set
  • TIC Pretested Apple Pectin HM Slow Set
  • TIC Pretested Apple Pectin HM Slow Set 3

Courtney Pineau, associate director at the Non-GMO Project says, “The Non-GMO Project applauds the achievements of TIC Gums in verifying a variety of its products and their commitment to providing consumers a transparent choice in the marketplace.”

According to Innova Market Insights, product launches containing pectin have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.8 percent from 2012-2018. Over the same period of time, Non-GMO products containing pectin grew at a CAGR of 36.5 percent. The need for Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients, particularly pectin, is being driven by consumer demands for products that meet their dietary and lifestyle needs. 

Label claim transparency continues to be front of mind for consumers. TIC Gums is committed to producing ingredients that allow manufacturers to communicate clearly and honestly with their customers.

“As customer demand for products with minimal GMO risk continues to grow, it has become essential for our team to seek Non-GMO Project verification for our Pectin products. We’re proud and excited to continue to expand our portfolio of Non-GMO Project Verified products,” says Veronica Burnham, senior regulatory specialist at TIC Gums.
