ADM Introduces SmartBind™ Natural Wheat Proteins


Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) today announced the launch of SmartBind™ natural wheat proteins. SmartBind can be used in nutrition bars, cereal coatings, whole grain baked goods, microwavable bakery products and other food applications.

Wheat-based proteins are often used in baked goods and nutritious foods to further enhance delicate taste and fine texture. An extension of ADM’s Prolite® line, SmartBind can be used in products that require natural ingredients to increase protein, enhance structure, reduce sugar and fat, and replace eggs or dairy products.

“SmartBind is a natural extension of ADM’s existing line of proteins and protein isolate application expertise,” said Neal Bassi, director of sales, wheat starch and proteins, ADM Milling. “Our technical and application team developed SmartBind to help food manufacturers meet the increasing consumer demand for nutritious foods made with natural ingredients.”
