Ingredients for Better-for-You Products
For the first time since its acquisition in 2014 of both WILD Flavors and Specialty Commodities, ADM will feature the combined expertise of all three companies at the 2015 IFT food expo. This means that ADM now offers food and flavor solutions to just about every product category and market segment, says Vince Macciocchi, president of WILD Flavors and Specialty Ingredients, in a press statement.
The technical teams from ADM have formulated product concepts that show how ingredients from ADM and its two business units can be used to formulate healthier and better-tasting foods and beverages that meet the demands of today’s consumers. For example, the company produces ancient grains, dehydrated fruits, seeds, and more that help food formulators create better-for-you products. The company offers edible oils that can replace partially hydrogenated oils. For product developers who are reducing sugar in products, ADM offers ingredients like VivaSweet sucralose, which blends well with other sweeteners for use in beverages, bakery applications, and dairy applications. The company also manufactures isolated soy protein ingredients to enrich the protein content of beverages.
ADM Cocoa (booth 119) will debut a new naturally derived cocoa powder, Truedark from deZaan, which has the same bold brown color and rich cocoa taste as an alkalized cocoa powder. The company promotes the ingredient as an alternative to use in formulas for so-called clean label products.
