“Consumer demand for non-GMO foods is on the rise and creating products that are in line with this trend is increasingly key to success for today’s producers. By enabling our customers to use a trusted and recognizable seal on pack, we can help them to provide consumers with greater transparency on ingredient sourcing and ultimately facilitate more non-GMO choices,” said Carl Volz, president, America, Sensus.
In total, 10 Frutafit and Frutalose products have been approved as non-GMO in the U.S. Frutafit inulin and Frutalose oligofructose are prebiotic, soluble dietary fibers that offer several nutritional and functional properties, including highly researched benefits for digestive wellness and weight management. Unlike alternative fiber sources such as corn, chicory root is a clean label solution, offering extra appeal for manufacturers looking to expand their portfolio using ingredients from a natural source.
Mr. Volz continued: “The Non-GMO Project verification provides external recognition of the rigorous standards that we already have in place at Sensus, as we look at ways in which we can continuously improve to deliver the highest quality ingredients. As a leading chicory root fiber manufacturer, we’re delighted to be leading the way in making more non-GMO products available in this category.”
