Polyols

ADM offers polyols for enhanced functionality in a variety of personal care, pharmaceutical and industrial applications.

Our sorbitol is highly functional and can be used as a moisture conditioner, softener and shelf-life extender in multiple applications including adhesives, paper products, print rollers and insulation.

It is also used as a chelating agent in textiles, caustic refining, paper and aluminum etching. Sorbitol also acts as a stabilizer and softener in laundry detergents, dyes and pigments, contact lens solutions, toothpaste, mouthwash, and personal care products.

A Legacy of Expertise

ADM continues to grow our legacy of expertise across functional texture ingredients—polyols, emulsifiers, and hydrocolloids—that began in the 1940s, as the first company in the U.S. to make commercial soy lecithin. Our plant-based polyols provide reliable quality and our distribution network ensures a dependable supply. Leverage our technical expertise—we work with you to create customizable solutions to increase your speed to market.

Sustainable Supply

ADM’s partnership with sustainable growers provides the highest quality ingredients and consistency, from field to market. Unlike many other polyols products, ours are fully derived from plants and produced in the U.S. via fermentation from plant-based sources at our own dedicated Decatur plant.
