As the food and beverage industry looks for ways to take genetically modified organisms (GMOs) out of recipes and off labels, Corbion is adding another non-GMO product to its emulsifier portfolio. 


The newest addition, Emplex Non GMO, was developed to deliver all the existing functionality while being suitable for use in non-GMO formulations. Emplex Non GMO can be used in applications ranging from yeast-leavened bakery products to chewing gum, pancakes to pastas, powdered beverage mixes to dehydrated potatoes.

"The most popular use for Emplex Non GMO is in baked goods, where it improves dough tolerance through the manufacturing process," says Jim Robertson, Corbion product manager. "Emplex Non GMO also improves bread characteristics like loaf volume and crumb softness in baked goods, to deliver superior quality."

Robertson says projections in Packaged Facts indicate U.S. retail sales of non-GMO foods and beverages are expected to increase at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.9% in the next five years, and could represent 30% of the market with a value of $264 billion in 2017.

"As the non-GMO market segment continues to grow, more and more Corbion customers will expand into this market," Robertson says. "We want to make sure they can turn to us for the same trusted options they've come to depend on - now in a non-GMO format."

Other products in Corbion's non-GMO emulsifier portfolio include: BFP 75 PLM Non-GMO; BFP 65 PLM Non-GMO; Tandem 552K Non-GMO; Trancendim 130 Non-GMO; and Alphadim 90 PBK Non-GMO.
