Dutch chicory root supplier Sensus has achieved Non-GMO Project verification for its Frutafit and Frutalose products.

Ten products have achieved approval, said the company in a press release. 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. The ingredients provide natural sweetness and can be used for sugar reduction in food products, to increase fiber content and enhance taste, it added.

“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.

“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.”
