These ingredients have been witnessing high demand and are especially being used for the manufacturing of packed foods, beverages, confectionaries and others. Since genetically modified foods are not safe to use, consumers have been preferring to opt for foods that are organic and genetically unmodified. As a result, non-GMO ingredients, once considered niche, have now become mainstream products.
