High-Fiber Wheat Product Inches Toward Commercialization

March 21, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Minnesota-based consumer-focused food company Calyxt announced that its high-fiber wheat product was declared a non-regulated article under the “Am I Regulated?” process by a unit of the USDA. The company said this is its first consumer-centric wheat product, second wheat product, and seventh product overall to be given this designation. Calyxt’s powdery mildew resistant wheat was awarded the non-regulated status by the USDA in February 2016. Consumer demand for flavorful high-fiber foods has been strong because they have the potential to not only decrease the risk of food-related coronary heart disease and diabetes, but also to lower cholesterol and control weight gain. Calyxt believes that once its high-fiber wheat flour is commercialized – it could happen in 2020 or 2021 – it can be used by food manufacturers to make premium bakery and pasta products that allow consumers to reach their daily fiber requirement.[Image Credit: © Calyxt ]
