Genetically engineered - yes

965 - Maltitols: Maltose is the base for the production of maltitol. It is produced from starch in plants during the process of starch saccharification. Maize starch can partly consist of genetically modified maize, especially when raw materials are imported from the USA or Argentina. In the EU, genetically modified maize is grown on a comparatively small area and nonetheless is not used as raw material for foodstuff. This may change in the case that the cultivation of GM maize increases in significance. Ingredients derived from several types of GM maize are approved in the EU. Enzymes solubilise plant starch and metabolise it into compounds that are distinguished as ingredients and additives. Several of these enzymes are produced with help of GM microorganisms such as amylases, glucose-isomerase, pullulanase
