With The Detox Project certification, products made with these beneficial ingredients will have even greater clean-label appeal for consumers.
Taiyo has announced that its popular Sunfiber and rising star SunCran ingredients are now certified by The Detox Project as glyphosate residue free. With this certification, Taiyo and its customers can use The Detox Project Glyphosate Residue Free Certified icon.
“Being certified by The Detox Project as glyphosate residue free is just one more reason that our customers can trust Sunfiber and SunCran,” comments Scott Smith, vice president of Taiyo International. “This certification ensures that these ingredients do not contain the world’s most common herbicide, further enhancing their already strong clean-label appeal. Taiyo stands ready to assist all of its customers with earning this certification.”
Glyphosate, an ingredient in weed killers, is considered a probable human carcinogen according to the International Agency on Research for Cancer. Concerns about glyphosate residues, especially among corn or soy products, are a growing concern among the industry and consumers. “While Sunfiber is a guar fiber, Taiyo believes strongly in consistently exceeding industry standards to maintain premium quality assurance,” says Smith.
Launched in May 2017, The Detox Project certification attests that a product has gone through analysis for levels of glyphosate, by third-party ISO-certified laboratories at least three times a year. To be certified Glyphosate Residue Free, product/s must have no glyphosate residues down to government-recognized limits of detection for food, commodity and supplement samples (usually 0.01 ppm), and lower levels than default government Maximum Residue Limits in the European Union and Japan.
This certification is the latest in a growing list of affirmations for Sunfiber and SunCran. Both of these natural ingredients are Non-GMO Project Verified, TRU-ID ™ DNA Certified for Authenticity, 100% gluten free, Kosher, Halal and Monash University Low FODMAP Certified™. They are available as organic or conventional.
