Functional soy proteins, whole-grain sorghum flour, nutritious bean powders, and indulgent cocoa powers are just a few examples from the portfolio of Archer Daniels Midland Company. These ingredients, which are highlighted in several food and beverage prototypes, demonstrate how they can meet the needs of the food customer.
The newest addition to this extensive portfolio is a transparent isolated soy protein, Clarisoy™ 100, which takes center stage in a refreshing tropical beverage, Orange Mango Protein Cooler. This vegetable-based protein offers clarity and complete protein nutrition for low pH beverage systems, such as juices, soft drinks, and sports drinks. The ingredient is 100% soluble and very low in viscosity. Recently, ADM entered into a license agreement with Burcon NutraScience Corp. for the worldwide production, distribution, and sale of Burcon’s Clarisoy soy protein.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of deZaan™, ADM features truffles made with pure Belgian chocolate. These rich, indulgent treats are sure to satisfy the sweet tooth.
Baked Chocolate Raspberry Nutrition Bar delivers taste and nutrition due to a combination of ADM ingredients, including CardioAid™ plant sterols, NovaSoy soy isoflavones, Kansas Diamond® white whole-wheat flour, Prolite® wheat gluten, cocoa, and oils.
A savory pot pie, Multi-grain Cajun Pot Pie, features the goodness of multigrains. It is formulated with sorghum flour, Kansas Diamond white whole-wheat flour, Prolite wheat gluten, VegeFull™ edible bean powder, soy protein concentrates, and other ADM ingredients.
Gluten-free Crisp with Hummus is made with sorghum flour, vegetable shortening, and Ultralec lecithin. The savory hummus features Vegefull edible bean powder, vegetable shortening, and CardioAid plant sterols.
Also highlighted are prototypes fortified with Fibersol-2, a slow fermentation soluble dietary fiber that has been shown in clinical studies to help support intestinal health. The fiber is highly soluble, has a clear and transparent solution, offers acid stability, and is very stable at high temperatures.
Archer Daniels Midland Company and Matsutani America Inc. (Booths 6539 and 6439) are celebrating the five-year anniversary of the formation of a joint venture that supports the worldwide sales and marketing of Fibersol-2. The joint venture combines Matsutani’s strong technical and scientific expertise with ADM’s vast production facilities and transportation network, resulting in a quality food ingredient backed by highly consistent service and a more readily available supply.
With food, fun, and fiber, happy anniversary to both companies!
