GTC Opens New Facility

GOLDEN, Colo.GTC Nutrition opened a new specialty oats manufacturing facility in Missoula, Mont. The facility was designed as the primary production facility for GTCs OatVantage ingredient, a highly concentrated soluble fiber that contains 54 percent beta-glucan, more than 18 times greater than regular oats. It is suitable for both human and animal consumption.

We are excited to add OatVantage as an ingredient that will help to support our heart and glycemic health platforms, enabling our customers to obtain a unique competitive advantage in the markets they serve, said Pat Smith, president of GTC Nutrition (www.GTCNutrition.com). The Missoula plant is part of our continued efforts to expand our portfolio of ingredient offerings by designing a variety of innovative products and applications to meet evolving customer needs.

The Missoula manufacturing facility is the second new manufacturing channel for GTC products that its parent company, Corn Products International, has opened in North America. In 2006, the companies opened a facility in London, Ontario, that produces prebiotic short-chain fructooligosaccharides.
