ADM responds to current and future trends with high-quality plant based protein ingredients

05/04/2019
ADM at IFFA, Frankfurt, Germany. New developments for meat applications, vegetarian and vegan alternatives. Comprehensive experience in plant proteins leads to impressive results.

HEIDELBERG-EPPELHEIM, 2019, May 4—At IFFA, Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) will present its latest plant based protein ingredients that allow cost-effective meat processing as well as vegetarian and vegan alternatives to serve current consumer trends.

Meat applications: functional and cost-effective
ADM protein specialists will showcase the Arcon® range, high-quality functional soya concentrates with a protein content of at least 67 percent. The Arcon range has a clean taste and a natural light color and is suitable for countless meat applications.

On the ADM stand, a tasting menu including a variety of meat applications will demonstrate the benefits the Arcon range provides. Reformed chicken ham, for example, extended by 60 percent using Arcon SM demonstrates excellent water binding capacity and sliceability. Visitors can also taste meatballs and chicken kebab at the ADM booth and see for themselves.

Vegetarian and vegan alternatives: On-trend solutions to convince in texture and taste
Due to the growing demand for complete meat substitutes ADM protein application experts developed vegan alternatives based on the unique Textura® fibrous soya, in combination with the Arcon T textured soya concentrate range. Textura in combination with Arcon T will create a typical fibrous structure and other attributes of original meat products without compromising on taste and texture. On the ADM stand, a plant based tasting menu replicating popular meat dishes such as chicken nuggets and pulled pork will be available.

“As one of the world's largest agricultural processors and suppliers of food ingredients, we know how to balance various ingredients to ensure perfect results. Our deep consumer understanding together with our extensive know-how in plant-based proteins, flavoring and applications make us the partner of choice to help manufacturers get to market quickly with modern solutions”, says Jochen Heininger, Vice President Marketing and Product Management EMEAI, ADM Nutrition/WFSI.

At IFFA, visitors are invited to learn more about ADM’s comprehensive protein portfolio, which will be presented in complete concepts. Extraordinary creations can be tasted at the ADM booth in hall 12.1 – stand B71.
