Nexira: Non-GMO, Natural
The Non-GMO Project has certified five ingredients from Nexira, a worldwide leader in acacia gum and natural ingredients
As the world leader in acacia gum and natural ingredients, Nexira is proud to announce that five of its ingredients have been verified by the Non-GMO Project: Fibregum™ Bio, Fibregum™ Bio L, Fibregum™ B, Instantgum™ BA and Instantgum™ AA.
Founded in 1895, Nexira provides innovative natural ingredients to the food, health and nutrition industries. This verification is the latest achievement by Nexira in its aim to provide clean label and natural solutions with the only range of acacia fiber ingredients verified by the Non-GMO Project which confirms its global leadership in acacia gum supply.
The Fibregum™ range has already captured the attention of numerous companies for its technical and functional benefits. It is a 100% vegetable ingredient offering more than 90% dietary soluble fiber, great digestive tolerance, proven prebiotic properties, and associated intestinal health benefits backed by numerous clinical studies.
This, in addition to the recognition of Fibregum™ as a dietary fiber by Health Canada (2011) an FDA approval to expand the use of acacia gum in food and beverage applications (2013), makes Fibregum™ an excellent choice thanks to its sustainable sourcing and available organic certifications. Fibregum™ is an ingredient solution requested by manufacturers to satisfy the increasing consumer demand for healthy, identifiable, natural and organic products.
Instantgum™ AA and Instantgum™ BA are other acacia products from Nexira that have been Non-GMO Project Verified and answer the high demand for high quality emulsifiers, stabilizers and texturizers that are natural and clean label options for the flavor and beverage industries.
Consumers are increasingly looking for more natural products and transparency regarding what they eat, which is leading to high demands for clean label products and specific claims, such as non-GMO. The latest data confirm this trend.
A recent consumer study from Health Focus reveals that non-GMO foods are “somewhat” or “a lot” healthier. During the past four years, non-GMO claims in the US food and drinks market has significantly increased from 2.8% in 2012 to 12.7% in 2015 (Source: Mintel).
“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. This confirms Nexira’s global leadership in acacia gum and our efforts to provide more natural solutions to the food and dietary supplements industries” says Mathieu Dondain, director of business development.
