Starches receive Non-GMO Project verification

Starches have joined the list of ingredients and products receiving Non-GMO Project verification from the Non-GMO Project, a non-profit organization that offers third-party verification and labeling.
London-based Tate & Lyle, P.L.C. last November said 18 starch ingredients, including the entire line of Claria starches, achieved certification.

“The starches with Non-GMO Project verification extend across the different types of functionality for starch used in foods including thickening, emulsification and film forming,” said Rachel Wicklund, Ph.D., technical manager, global ingredient technology for Tate & Lyle. “These starches are widely used in grain-based foods to deliver a desirable eating experience while enabling food producers to achieve effective processing performance and high quality throughout the finished product shelf life.”

MGP Ingredients, Atchison, Kas., provides specialty wheat products that have achieved Non-GMO Project verification. Starches under the Fibersym, Midsol and Pregel brands achieved verification.
