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.
