Ingredion announces 17 additions to Non-GMO Project verification, bringing total to 133


25 Sep 2017 --- Ingredion has announced 17 additions to its broad list of approved Non-GMO Project Verified ingredient solutions. The additions bring the company’s total number of Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients to 133.

The Non-GMO Project offers independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (genetically modified organisms) avoidance. Ingredion says that its verified products are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard, which means that ongoing testing of all GMO risk ingredients, facility inspections and an annual audit, ensure that the company meets the highest standards currently available for GMO avoidance.


“Achieving Non-GMO Project verification for even more products adds another level of trust to Ingredion’s extensive non-GMO track record and broad portfolio of solutions,” says Igor Playner, Vice President of Innovation and Strategy for Ingredion, North America. “As consumer demand for non-GMO products grows, manufacturers can more readily respond by formulating with our Non-GMO Project Verified ingredient solutions.”


“These solutions not only provide the transparency and sensory experience consumers expect, but also deliver the convenience and performance benefits manufacturers require,” Playner adds.


Ingredion has also announced that Non-GMO Project verification underscores the company’s Truetrace traceability program, which protects the purity of the company’s non-GMO offerings via third-party-audited best practices for segregation and documentation of non-GMO corn.


The 17 starches added to Ingredion’s growing list of Non-GMO Project Verified products offer a wide range of process tolerance and stability advantages in applications such as dressings, sauces, ready meals, yogurts and dairy desserts, the company says.


They are as follows:

• Amioca Powder corn starch

• Amioca TF corn starch

• Batter Bind food starch-modified

• Capsul food starch-modified

• Colflo 67 food starch-modified

• Crisp Film food starch-modified

• Frigex W food starch-modified

• Hylon V corn starch

• N-Creamer 46 modified food starch

• N-Creamer 2000 food starch-modified

• National 465 food starch-modified

• Numould corn starch, mineral oil

• Purity Gum BE food starch-modified

• Purity W food starch-modified

• Thermflo food starch-modified

• Ultra-Sperse A corn starch

• Ultra-Tex SR food starch-modified


Ingredion concludes by saying that it provides a strong heritage of consistent non-GMO ingredient quality, made possible by its programs, processes and partner relationships.


Ingredion has been busy in the field of non-GMO ingredients lately, as it recently launched its process-stable, clean label Homecraft Create tapioca flours. It has also launched its N-Zorbit 2144 DG plating agent that promises to allow manufacturers to economically transform a wide variety of both oil- and water-soluble liquids into powdered ingredients.
