Fibersol®-2 non-GMO, a spray-dried powder that is produced from cornstarch but is not digested in the same manner as cornstarch. Instead, it is fermented by microflora in the large intestine. Nutritionally, Fibersol®-2 non-GMO meets the fiber definitions proposed by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Institute of Medicine, by Codex Alimentarius, and by the European Foods Safety Authority (EFSA) who describe it as a fiber in the specific category of „non- digestible carbohydrates”. Fiber content is measured by AOAC Official Method 2001.031. Fibersol®-2 non-GMO is free flowing, readily dispersible and produces a clear solution. With no inherent flavor of its own, Fibersol®-2 non-GMO is a functional ingredient that is used in a wide variety of foods and beverages, and, when consumed, is physiologically beneficial.
Fibersol®-2 non-GMO is screened routinely for the presence of potential contaminants. Results of these tests demonstrate that contaminant levels are low and comply with limits that are required by EU Regulation 1881/2006 „Setting Maximum Levels for Contaminants in foodstuffs” and consequent amendments.
Gluten Free Statement
With regards to the gluten- free status of Fibersol®-2 non-GMO, corn (maize) does not contain wheat or other gluten protein sources to which people with coeliac disease are permanently intolerant. Fibersol®-2 non-GMO is made from the wet milling of corn and is suitable for consumption by persons with the coeliac condition.
Fibersol®-2 non-GMO meets the EU requirements to be referred to as: „gluten-free”. According to EU Regulation 609/2013 in conjunction with Implementing Regulation 828/2014, the term „gluten-free” may be applied to foods and food ingredients that contain no more than 20mg/kg gluten.
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) Statement
Fibersol®-2 non-GMO complies with Eurofins non-GM IP control program and standards as outlined in Eurofins Identity Preservation Standard issue 5.1, March 2014.
Non-GMO starch is sourced from suppliers that hold a third-party IP/non-GMO certificate. In addition, every incoming starch lot is PCR tested using a qualitative and/or a quantitative PCR test conducted by an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. Fibersol®-2, 1000901 is not genetically modified, in accordance with the requirements of all EU GMO relevant legislation as listed below.
European Parliament and the Council of the European Union published regulations:
- Regulation (EC) 1829/2003 on genetically modified food and feed
- Regulation (EC) 1830/2003 concerning traceability and labeling of genetically modified organisms and the traceability of food and feed products produced from genetically modified organisms
- All raw materials used for the process of 1000901 are non-GMO, according Directive 2001/18/EC
Final product is PCR-negative as confirmed using a „real time” PCR method.
A pesticide monitoring program on Fibersol®-2 non GMO is performed annually by an accredited laboratory and results have been consistently below the Limit of detection (LOD). Depending on the pesticide tested (over 400), the Limit of Quantification (LOQ) is between 0.01-0.06 mg/kg. The monitoring results are in line with the European Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 and all subsequent amendments.
