At this year’s virtual Food ingredients Europe, the continent’s largest gathering of food and beverage professionals, ADM’s innovative ProFam® Pea 580 solution has won the prestigious Ingredients Innovation Award.

The judges assessed innovation by comparing taste, texture, functionality and nutritional value with non-plant-based products. They also compared our solution to competitors.

ProFam® Pea 580 offers a market-leading clean color and taste, which helps in challenging formulations. It also provides functionality benefits, such as an enhanced mouthfeel and texture in vegan chocolate, or as a great-tasting alternative to dairy products.

“I'm delighted that the FiE award council has recognized the innovation that ProFam® Pea 580 brings to the market,” said Perujo. “We’re hugely excited to explore the vast range of opportunities that it opens up for our customers.”
