Penford’s existing white corn product portfolio includes PenFibe® CW, a non-GMO white corn fiber that contains a minimum of 80 percent dietary fiber and cuts calories when used in place of flour. Another offering is PenGerm CW, a non-GMO white corn-based germ that adds texture, enhances appearance and extends the use of nuts which provides significant cost savings. All three ingredients can be used in the following applications:
