Amano Introduces Line of Non-GMO Food Enzymes


Respondents to recent market survey indicated availability of non-GMO food enzymes is important, and will drive innovation.

Reacting to its latest customer market research, Amano Enzyme USA has introduced an entire line of non-GMO food enzymes at IFT18.
This new non-GMO line includes the larger part of its enzymes, including proteases and lipases, already used in food applications. The line will be available, worldwide, through Amano’s various subsidiaries.
According to Ken Iritani, vice president, technical services, “a majority of the respondents to our recent market survey indicated that the availability of non-GMO food enzymes is important, and many feel it will drive innovation in the marketplace.”
“We already produced a number of non-GMO enzymes,” said Mr. Iritani, “but as a quality producer of food enzymes, sensitive to our customers’ needs, we wanted to be responsive to this growing trend.”
“In order to qualify for our non GMO portfolio,” continued Mr. Iritani, “the enzymes must meet the following three criteria: the organisms used to produce the enzymes are non genetically engineered; the fermentation media used is Identity Protected (IP) non-GMO; the carriers used are also Identity Protected (IP) non-GMO.”
