Ingeo is made from dextrose (sugar) that is derived from field corn already grown for many industrial and functional end-uses. In North America, corn has been used first because it is the most economically ,feasible source of plant starches. Ingeo uses less than 1/20th of 1% (0.05%) of the annual global corn crop today, so there’s little to no impact on food prices or supply. The process does not require corn, Ingeo only needs a sugar source. This could include sugar beets, sugar cane, wheat and more.
