Five acacia ingredients from Nexira’s Fibregum and Instantgum range have now received Non-GMO Project Verified status.
Nexira (Rouen, France) announced on Tuesday that five of its acacia gum ingredients have received Non-GMO Project Verified status. Fibregum Bio, Fibergum Bio L, Fibregum B, Instantgum BA, and Instantgum AA were included in the verification, which has led Nexira to claim it offers the “only range of acacia fiber ingredients verified by the Non-GMO Project.”
The Fibregum range offers 90% dietary soluble fiber as well as “proven prebiotic properties and associated intestinal health benefits backed by numerous clinical studies,” says Nexira. It was recognized as a dietary fiber by Health Canada in 2011, and was approved by FDA for food and beverage applications in 2013.
Nexira’s Instantgum range is designed to meet demand for “high-quality emulsifiers, stabilizers, and texturizers that are natural and clean-label options for the flavor and beverage industries.”
“Nexira is pleased today to provide this additional certification to the food industry with new Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients which will facilitate verification of our clients’ products and improve their time to market,” says Mathieu Dondain, director of business development, Nexira. “This confirms Nexira’s global leadership in acacia gum and our efforts to provide more natural solutions to the food and dietary supplement industries.”
