TIC Gums says its new US-produced GuarNT USA process addresses two major FSMA compliance hurdles associated with food safety — Foreign Supplier Verification Program and Preventive Controls.

GuarNT is manufactured in an SQF Level 3 facility in Belcamp, MD, which helps avoid Foreign Supplier Verification Program requirements. It also utilizes TIC Gums' proprietary Validated Kill Step as a preventative control, which monitors and prevents identified hazards.

GuarNT USA is a highly versatile hydrocolloid that builds viscosity and controls water migration in a wide range of finished goods including ice cream, instant beverages, sauces, baked goods, fruit preparations and syrups. Because 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.
