Cargill launches non-GMO sweeteners and sunflower oil

NEW YORK, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Cargill Inc has launched lines of sweeteners and sunflower oil certified as not genetically modified, or non-GMO, the company said on Thursday, the latest in a trend of food companies moving towards ingredients perceived as more natural.

The global commodities trader is now offering commercial-scale cane sugar and erythritol products as well as sunflower oil that have been certified as non-GMO, it said in a statement.

“Consumer demand for non-GMO food and beverages is growing, and Cargill is responding,” Mike Wagner, Managing Director for Cargill Starches and Sweeteners North America, said in the statement.
