Due to consumer demand across North America, Non-GMO Project Verified products remain important in the marketplace and the Butterfly is the most trusted label for GMO avoidance among shoppers today. With increasing consumer demand for non-GMO products in North America, raw material suppliers who want to be part of this initiative are requested to provide non-GMO products.
Lallemand’s inactive yeast products are not genetically modified. However, we have taken the extra step to verify many of our ingredients in order to meet the more stringent Non-GMO Project standards. The Non-GMO Project Product Verification Program is North America’s only third-party verification for non-GMO food and products. The Non-GMO Project Verified seal gives consumers the assurance that a product has completed a comprehensive third-party verification for compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard. When it comes to food and ingredient labeling, third-party certifications are best because they ensure the claim is unbiased, rigorous, and transparent. In order to support our customers and, subsequently, consumers, Lallemand has adopted the standards of the non-GMO Project.
Our product range complying with the Non-GMO Project’s rigorous standard includes Saccharomyces cerevisiae and torula whole cell inactive yeast, yeast extracts and yeast autolysates for the Savory, Health and Fermentation Ingredients.
