Our Science & Technology at Work
ADM has an industry-leading portfolio of products across a variety of food, beverage and wellness spaces that showcases our science and technology capabilities at work. Our alternative proteins are a prime example of how ADM is able to effectively transform ingredients into a tailored solution that appeals to consumers. We were able to leverage our portfolio of plant-based proteins, in conjunction with science-based ingredient development and functionality, to formulate alternative proteins that delivered in taste, texture and nutrition.
In the health and wellness space, our proprietary microbiome research brought BPL1 to market. This is an award-winning probiotic strain with clinically documented results showing a positive impact on markers of metabolic health, including BMI. The development of this strain took more than nine years of research and development, including proprietary, patent-protected science and over 50 microbiome-related publications, as well as human clinical trials. Further research led to HTPBL1, a postbiotic derived from the BPL1 strain. In both cases, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials were conducted to better understand the role of ADM’s BPL1/HTBPL1 in markers of metabolic health. The development and launch of these microbiome supporting solutions illustrate ADM’s commitment to delivering science-backed solutions, from cutting edge pre-clinical research all the way to commercialization.
