ADM: Functional Extracts
ADM introduces fruit, vegetable functional extracts with antioxidant compounds
Archer Daniels Midland Company offers a new line of unique extracts that can deliver a concentrated dose of the powerful antioxidant compounds beta-carotene and anthocyanins in a variety of food, beverage and supplement applications.
Beta-carotene is a precursor for vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient that plays a role in maintaining eye and skin health. ADM’s beta-carotene-rich vegetable extracts originate from carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, paprika from chili peppers and Reishi mushrooms. Anthocyanins are antioxidants that may help maintain a healthy immune system. ADM’s anthocyanin extracts originate from purple sweet potatoes, purple maize, purple carrots, beets, rhubarb, tomatoes and red cabbage.
These new extracts deliver key phytonutrients from vegetables while at the same time providing an optimal sensory experience and a clean-tasting profile. They are soluble for a variety of food, beverage and supplement applications and can be used in beverages, confections, frozen desserts, snacks, bars, baked goods, supplements and others.
