Dry Sweeteners, VegeFull™ Cooked Bean Ingredients, Cocoa and Chocolate Among Ingredients Featured in Anaheim
Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) introduced three new food
creations at the 2009 Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Food Expo,
booth #2642, in Anaheim, Calif. The IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo is
the largest annual food science forum and exposition in the world with
approximately 20,000 attendees expected.
“With hundreds of ingredients and our application expertise, ADM is
truly a one-stop shop for the food industry,” said Beth Chandler, ADM
spokesperson. “During IFT, food manufacturers will have the opportunity
to learn, and taste, how many of our ingredients – from indulgent
chocolate, to nutritious bean powders to functional proteins – can be
used in unique and creative ways.”
During IFT, ADM sampled the following creations:
• Date & Almond Breakfast Bar
ADM’s VegeFull™ navy bean powder makes this breakfast bar – which also
includes Prolite® wheat protein isolate and NovaLipid™ soybean oil – a
good source of fiber.
• Triple Chocolate Brownie
We’ve wrapped up both Ambrosia® chocolate chunks and De Zaan® cocoa
powder in a Triple Chocolate Brownie that’s topped with chocolate fudge
icing for true indulgence.
• Oats & Crisp Bar
ADM’s NutriSoy® high-protein crisps and Fibersol®-2 dietary soluble
fiber make this nutritious and delicious bar a good source of both
protein and fiber.
ADM also featured Sweet ‘n’ Neat® dry honey powder, from its line of
natural, dry sweeteners, in a Sweet ‘n’ Crunchy Sesame Mix.
ADM’s dry sweeteners, which include dry honey, molasses and malt
extract, add flavor, color and aroma to foods such as snacks, baked
goods, nutrition bars, and margarines and spreads.
ADM’s Sweet ‘n’ Neat 2000 dry honey powder, featured in the Sweet ‘n’
Crunchy Sesame Mix, is 70 percent honey that is converted to a
free-flowing powder through a special patented drying process. The
product delivers the same flavor, color and functional benefits of
liquid honey, but can be used in dry technology applications or other
areas where process or product constraints prevent the use of liquid
Also featured this year is ADM’s line of VegeFull cooked bean
ingredients, which offers powders, grits, noodles, pieces and whole
quick-prep beans. VegeFull ingredients are made from black, small red,
navy or pinto beans, or chick peas to increase vegetable protein and
fiber in foods such as baked goods, snacks, dips, cereals and more.
Another source of fiber featured this year is ADM’s Fibersol-2 dietary
soluble fiber, which is derived from corn starch. It can be added to
nearly any food or beverage application – yogurt, tea, protein bars and
soups – without affecting taste, and is virtually invisible, dissolving
clearly in liquids.
As part of its protein portfolio, ADM offers three varieties of NutriSoy
protein crisps – 60 percent protein, 80 percent protein and 85 percent
protein. Made from soy and wheat, the 85 percent protein crisps have one
of the highest protein contents on the market. The 60 percent and 80
percent versions are made from soy.
