Kernza Has a Foot in the Door at Major Food Companies, and a Toehold in the MonDak, Too
There is just one food-grade Kernza line in the United States presently, and it just so happens to be from a facility in North Dakota.
Healthy Food Ingredients, which specializes in ingredient categories such as non-GMO, organic, certified gluten-free, and others, has a flax processing facility in Valley, North Dakota, which also has a standalone unit for Kernza.
Kernza’s opportunity isn’t the health food angle. It’s more the story that large companies like General Mills want to tell about supporting sustainable agriculture.
