NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 25, 2021 – Layn Natural Ingredients, one of the world’s largest innovators of natural botanical extract ingredients and solutions serving the biggest brands in food, beverage, flavor, nutraceutical, personal care, animals and pets, announces the expansion of its portfolio of Non-GMO Project Verified botanical extracts.
The expansion is driven by continuing global market demands for non-GMO (Non-Genetically Modified Organisms) ingredients, particularly in the food and beverage market, which has exhibited strong growth in the past five years and is expected to continue to grow at a CAGR of 15.7% during 2021-2026.
Layn Natural Ingredients previously achieved Non-GMO Project Verified status for its plant-based sweetener products, including stevia, monk fruit, sweet blackberry and NHDC, and has now expanded its non-GMO ingredient portfolio specifically focusing on polyphenol-rich botanical extracts that offer high functional benefit in the dietary supplement, sports nutrition, food & beverage, and pet nutrition markets. The newest additions to Layn’s non-GMO offering include apple, citrus, Galla chinensis, ginger, grape seed, green coffee bean, green tea, magnolia bark, pomegranate, pu’erh tea, rosemary and Sophora japonica. Achievement of non-GMO status for these botanical extracts solidifies Layn’s leading global position for these key ingredients.
“Consumers are increasingly demanding greater transparency and trust. As a global, fully vertically integrated botanical extracts ingredient innovator and supplier, we want the world to know we take a clear and proactive approach in verifying that these ingredients widely used in food, beverage, and supplements, as well as in pet and animal nutrition markets, do not contain any GMOs,” stated Collette Kakuk, Vice President, Global Marketing for Layn Natural Ingredients.
The Non-GMO Project is a mission-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to building and protecting a non-GMO food supply. Non-GMO Project Verified remains the market leader for GMO avoidance and one of the fastest growing labels in the retail sector.
