The Right Products
ADM offers a wide portfolio of plant-based, naturally sourced ingredients.
CardioAid® Plant Sterols
More than 50 years of scientific study has proven that plant sterols can significantly lower cholesterol levels. In fact, the FDA has allowed a specific health claim for plant sterols that states:
Foods containing at least 0.4 gram per serving of plant sterols, eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 0.8 gram, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Incorporating CardioAid® plant sterols into foods and beverages, particularly health and wellness products, is a naturally sourced way to help consumers reduce heart disease risk by helping to lower serum total and LDL cholesterol concentrations.
Fibersol® is a well-tolerated soluble prebiotic dietary fiber that can deliver benefits beyond traditional digestive health. In today’s market, consumers are looking for foods and beverages that provide a range of positive and proactive nutritional benefits. Fiber fits with what consumers want, including satiety and microbiome support, even calorie and sugar reduction. With our highly-dispersible, neutral-tasting Fibersol®, you can formulate easily while worrying less about consumer acceptance.
Our Fibersol® has demonstrated superior levels of tolerance versus other fibers such as inulin.
NovaSoy® Soy Isoflavone Concentrates
Soy isoflavones are commonly referred to as plant estrogens given their consideration as selective estrogen receptor modulators. Our NovaSoy® products have drawn interest from women during mid-life transition known as menopause. Genistin, the main isoflavone in Novasoy, is converted to genistein which has been associated as being most impactful for decreasing hot flushes. Additional science has shown that isoflavones help maintain healthy bones and may evenplay a role related to skin health. You'll even find research trying to understand if soy isoflavones play a role in how arteries function.
We operate one of the world’s largest soy isoflavone facilities, producing the greatest variety of isoflavone supplement products sourced from identity-preserved, non-GM soybean varieties as well as non-GM, PCR-negative products.
NovaTol® Vitamin E & Tocopherols

They are used in fats, oils and in a wide range of fat-containing food and feed products. Mixed tocopherols contain mixtures of d-alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocopherols as found in nature.
