Tate & Lyle PLC, a global provider of food and beverage ingredients and solutions, has expanded its Dolcia Prima allulose portfolio with a crystalline form certified as 'Non-GMO Project Verified.'

This provides manufacturers with the opportunity to increase the number of retail products bearing the Non-GMO Project Verified label and certification.

With 50% of US consumers stating that non-GMO claims are an important factor when seeking out foods to purchase (IFIC 2018 BE research), Tate & Lyle said food and beverage manufacturers need to offer clean label products consumers can trust. 

“By expanding the Dolcia Prima allulose line of Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients, Tate & Lyle is adding another tool to its extensive portfolio, ensuring that our customers can respond to growing consumer demand for healthier, tastier and clean label products,”​ said Abigail Storms, vice president of sweetener innovation at Tate & Lyle.

Allulose is a naturally-occurring, low-calorie sugar that exists in nature in very small quantities. It delivers the same sweet taste and functionality as sugar (sucrose) but without the calories.

The crystalline form – together with the recently launched Non-GMO Project Verified Dolcia Prima allulose syrup – enables manufacturers to broaden the use of allulose across a range of food and beverage applications.
