ADM Cocoa will also be unveiling D-00-ZR, a reduced-fat cocoa powder with only 0.5 per cent fat. D-00-ZR is able to provide the desired depth of chocolate flavour to products that are formulated to be lower in calories or very low in total fat content.
Visitors will be able to learn more about ADM’s commitment to sustainability and the decision to source segregated palm oil for its European cocoa and chocolate manufacturing facilities. The company has put in place a variety of programmes to attempt to ensure that the crops it sources are responsibly produced. For example, ADM Cocoa’s flagship “Socially and Environmentally Responsible Agricultural Practices Programme” (SERAP) has distributed more than $21.5 million in funding to cocoa grower cooperatives and their members since it was established in 2005. In addition, ADM Cocoa offers chocolate, cocoa powder, cocoa butter and cocoa mass with UTZ, Rainforest Alliance and Fair Trade certifications.
ADM’s newly established business unit, Foods & Wellness, will preview the newest additions to its growing portfolio of Arcon® functional soya protein concentrates, including Arcon F, Arcon G, Arcon FS and Arcon T Crumbles. Examples of food products containing Arcon T Crumbles, a new concentrate especially suited to improving the texture of vegetarian products, will be available for sampling on the stand.
The Foods & Wellness business will be expanding the proven CLARISOY™ range following the success of CLARISOY 100 and 150. The world’s first vegetable-based protein offering clarity and high-quality protein nutrition, the CLARISOY line has been specifically designed for use in low-pH beverage applications such as sports and recovery drinks. The latest addition to the company’s portfolio will be unveiled at the show.

Texturized oils have particular application in marinades, and can also be used as palm oil-free alternatives in a wide range of food applications.
