Americas: Guar manufacturing process aids FSMA compliance


TIC Gums has released US-produced GuarNT USA that complies with two Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) aspects – Foreign Supplier Verification Program and Preventive Controls and the Foreign Supplier Verification Program.

GuarNT USA is manufactured and warehoused in an SQF Level 3 Facility in Belcamp, Maryland, US.

Due to the domestic nature of both the manufacturing and warehousing location, GuarNT USA avoids Foreign Supplier Verification Program requirements.

The company has also implemented a proprietary Validated Microbiological Kill Step as a preventive control that monitors and prevents identified hazards.

The ingredient is a highly versatile hydrocolloid that builds viscosity and controls water migration in finished goods including ice cream, instant beverages, sauces, baked goods, fruit preparations and syrups.

As guar is considered a seed gum, derived from the seed of the guar plant, GuarNT USA abides by regularly used clean label parameters.

TIC Gums currently has GuarNT USA 8/22 and GuarNT USA Flavor Free 5000 in inventory.
The GuarNT USA Flavor Free 5000 help to avoid the common beany or grassy off-notes in both flavor and odor, which are predominantly caused by the volatile organic compounds hexanal and hexanoic acid, among others.
