SOLUTIONS FOR NON-GMO BAKED GOODS
While baking ingredients such as wheat flour, rice, kamut, and oats and yeast are not genetically modified, many packaged breads and bakery items contain other GMO ingredients such as corn syrup, soy flour, and sugar from sugar beets.
Lallemand’s Contribution to Non GMO Movement
Lallemand has been providing our bakers with Non-GMO baker’s yeast for over 90 years. In light of the recent raise in public awareness, consumers wanting to make informed food choices, testing our baker’s yeast for GMO’s was the first priority for Lallemand to assure our customers peace of mind knowing our baker’s yeast is truly GMO free.
We voluntarily implemented mandatory GMO testing for all of our baker’s yeast. To reassure our customers that their bread can be completely free from GMO each and every lot of yeast is tested for both quality and genetic composition.
BioChecked Non GMO Certified
Every year our products are tested by BioChecked™, an independent Third Party, to make sure our baker’s yeast met or exceed Non Genetically Engineered Certified™ Standards.
Lallemand baker’s yeast produced in North America can therefore display with honor the logo :
- Lal^Ferm® fresh baker’s yeast (cream, crumbled and compressed)
- Instaferm® Instant dry baker’s yeast
Non-GMO Project (NGP) Verification
With the 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.
Although Lallemand’s baker’s yeast products are not made from genetically modified organisms, we have taken the extra step in order to meet the more stringent Non-GMO Project Verified standards. The Non-GMO Project is definitely the strictest Non-GMO certification program currently available. The standard goes beyond the absence of genetically modified DNA, and investigates the processes used to prepare all substrates, inputs and processing aids used to produce the yeast.
After a thorough preparation with the objective to support the increasing demand of its North American customers, Lallemand offers:
- NGP verified cream , crumbled and compressed fresh bakers yeast commercialized under the brand name Lal^Ferm®
- NGP verified instant dry yeast under the brand name Instaferm®
