HealthSense High Fiber Wheat Flour Achieves Non-GMO Project Verified Status
Quincy, MA (August, 01, 2018) – Bay State Milling Company, a leading provider of innovative plant-based ingredients, has secured Non-GMO Project Verification of its HealthSense High Fiber Wheat Flour™.
HealthSense is a breakthrough food ingredient derived from high amylose wheat that combines the benefits of customary wheat flour taste and functionality, a highly desired macronutrient in the form of resistant starch fiber, and traceability to the farm in one ingredient. HealthSense can be used in any food product to replace traditional hard wheat which provides food manufacturers the opportunity to help close the dietary fiber gap that currently exists in the American diet without a fiber additive.
Bay State Milling Company is the exclusive North American licensee of the high amylose trait in wheat. The licensor, Arista Cereal Technologies, holds extensive global patents on the process used to select for the trait and has partnered with Bay State Milling as its first commercial partner in its worldwide marketing efforts.
Bay State Milling is working closely with a select group of growers in the U.S. to develop the identity preserved HealthSense supply chain.
