Non-GMO ingredients you can trust

Consumers want transparency about what is in their foods and drinks. A growing number of them are concerned about genetically modified foods and are actively looking for non-GMO brands. We give you a choice of ingredients for your products: non-GMO or GMO.

For documented non-GMO ingredients and expertise you can trust (and tell your consumers about), talk to Ingredion. We proudly bring you the broadest portfolio of non-GMO starch and sweetener ingredients available, including those derived from corn, rice, tapioca, potato and more. You can also rely on more than a decade of experience meeting and exceeding international, third-party non-GMO standards for starches, sweeteners and nutrition ingredients.

We work with our customers to develop and implement appropriate labelling strategies for products, with or without GMO ingredients. You call the shots, but we are there to guide you.

Pure non-GMO maize and the TRUETRACE® program in the U.S.

Turn to us for starches derived from traceable, identity-preserved corn. Since 2004, Ingredion’s TRUETRACE® program has protected non-GMO purity via global, third-party-audited best practices to segregate and document our crops. Our grower partners follow strictly enforced procedures for seed, farm practices and production fields. Rigorous auditing assures non-GMO quality from planting to your manufacturing facility.

Our manufacturing plant in Indianapolis, Indiana, is the only completely certified non-GMO corn wet milling plant in the United States. Learn more about how we protect our ingredients and your credibility with the TRUETRACE® program.

The TRUETRACE® program allows Ingredion to trace any batch of starch back to the farmer who grew the corn, the fields on which the corn was grown and the seed varieties and lots used to grow it. Here are just a few of the ways we earn your trust with this proven program.

Farmers contract directly with Ingredion to grow several varieties of corn. These farmers follow the requirements  of Ingredion’s TRUETRACE® program and submit to audits.

 Farmers are required to use only non-GMO seed.

They certify cleaning of all equipment is free from GMO material. Hired workers must be trained and farmers are required to show proof of their training.

Farmers also must provide maps of all fields used to grow corn for Ingredion. No GMO corn can be grown in these fields during the previous year.

Unique identifiers are assigned to each farmer in Ingredion’s program to track their grain through all stages of the production process.

Our other third-party growers follow the same procedures and are audited according to established protocol.    

You can also choose non-GMO starches derived from wheat, tapioca (cassava), potato, rice and sago. These crops—grown in Europe, Thailand and Brazil—either have no genetically modified versions or are grown in countries that prohibit genetically modified organisms. The ingredients derived from them are made under strict protocols to preserve the identity of the crops and prevent contamination. For example, some tapioca ingredients are produced in our non-GMO plant in the United States.

For the highest non-GMO assurance in flours, our  HOMECRAFT® functional flours are made in the United States from local grain. You can also choose gluten-free rice and corn flours or our new line of tapioca flours.

Demand for non-GMO sweeteners continues to grow and so does our portfolio. Ask us about our non-GMO sweeteners: ENLITEN® stevia sweetener from Brazil and glucose, dextrose and maltodextrin from our Ingredion network in Thailand and North America.

You will also find a wide range of nutrition and other ingredients, including:

  • Fibres derived from non-GMO corn
  • Fibres made from pure sugar cane, manufactured at a non-GMO facility in Canada
  • A high-efficiency emulsifier from Chile and hydrocolloids and gums from South America

Whether you need non-GMO starches, flours, sweeteners, emulsifiers or nutrition ingredients, you’ll find Ingredion gives you the broadest non-GMO starch and sweetener portfolio backed by some of the industry’s most knowledgeable experts.
