Most Innovative Food Ingredient Award
Ultralec®, ADM’s revolutionary deoiled lecithin, received the Most Innovative Food Ingredient Award at a Food Ingredients Europe exhibition.
The award recognizes companies that deliver innovation and quality in the manufacturing and development of food ingredients.
To produce this high-performance lecithin, our lipid technologists engineered a proprietary ultrafiltration process that removes triglycerides from conventional lecithin without using acetone. The result is a dry, easy-to-mix, pure, deoiled lecithin that has a clean odor and flavor profile.
