Company’s Non-GMO Wheat Varieties Contain 94% Amylose, Resistant Starch

March 14, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Agricultural technology company Arcadia Biosciences of Davis, Calif., announced advancements in its high-fiber resistant starch development program. Its non-transgenic (non-GMO) wheat varieties contain as much as 94 percent amylose and resistant starch. It used advanced screening and traditional breeding techniques to accomplish this. The company also said these wheat varieties deliver enough dietary fiber to qualify for the FDA’s “Good Source” of fiber or “High in Fiber” designation on consumer packaging. Arcadia said the new wheat varieties will provide the health benefits of resistant starch and dietary fiber, “while satisfying consumer demand for clean-label, natural foods.” The company is working with a few CPG companies to develop more healthful formulations of existing products, using both enriched and whole wheat RS Wheat flour.
