Non-GMO Project is a nonprofit organisation committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers and providing verified non-GMO choices. It is the only independent verification programme in North America that provides the trusted seal for non-GMO (not genetically modified organisms) food and products.

"Consumer demand for non-GMO ingredients and products is growing. We are delighted to achieve Non-GMO Project Verification for our probiotic yeast Biootic® because this label represents an additional assurance to our partners and customers about the non-GMO origin of Biootic® and demonstrates Gnosis' continuous commitment to safety and transparency. This distinctive label is a competitive advantage for our customers because they can provide a higher level of trust to their customers, meeting US market demands to have cleaner labels," said Silvia Pisoni, marketing manager of Gnosis.

Biootic® S. boulardii is a yeast probiotic with bioregulatory effect on the intestinal flora helping to maintain a normal balance of friendly bacteria in the intestine that modulates immunity. It may support gut function under many conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome and traveler's diarrhea. It is obtained through a proprietary strain and patented process of Gnosis, providing greater stability and delaying the yeast aging process, such as cell deterioration and product contamination. We have been pleased to share with you this latest favorable target achieved by Gnosis, and we invite all consumers to catch the "Butterfly label", a guarantee for US consumers of non-genetically modified products.
