At Fi Europe, ADM is showcasing Nutriance, which it describes as a range of innovative wheat protein concentrates and the latest addition to its unparalleled range of ingredients and solutions for taste, function and nutrition. Said to be ideal for clean label solutions, ADM says that Nutriance delivers 85% protein and has a high glutamine content, as well as excellent digestibility, making it ideally suited to both the booming sports and senior nutrition markets.

Historically, the company notes, incorporating high levels of protein and glutamine into food and beverage products has been difficult to achieve with an appealing taste and texture. With good water solubility, a neutral taste and creamy colour, Nutriance is designed to help developers to overcome these challenges – regardless of whether they are looking to formulate for a beverage, bar, biscuit, cake or meal replacement application. Nutriance was recognized as a ‘Protein of the Future’ at the French Innovation Awards, presented at Fi Europe 2015.

“At ADM, we are continually looking to expand our extensive ingredient toolbox, to enable our customers to create food and beverage products that will appeal to today’s increasingly discerning, health-conscious consumer,” said Lutz Guderjahn, Managing Director, Corn, Europe at ADM. “Nutriance is a source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), which makes it the ideal solution for developers looking to reach the growing number of active or elderly consumers choosing to take a more holistic approach to their health. Whether they are following a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, or looking for natural positioning, this hydrolyzed wheat-sourced protein concentrate ticks all the boxes and we’re extremely excited to add it to our already vast ingredient portfolio.”
