A range of wheat protein concentrates aimed at overcoming the difficulty of incorporating high levels of protein and glutamine into food and beverage products has been launched by Archer Daniels Midland (ADM).

Tailored towards clean-label products, Nutriance contains 85% protein and has a high glutamine content.

ADM said it offers excellent digestibility, making it ideally suited to both the booming sports and senior nutrition markets.

Adding high levels of protein and glutamine into food and drink without detriment to the taste and texture is known to be difficult to achieve.

Beverage, bar, biscuit, cake or meal replacement

With good water solubility, a neutral taste and creamy colour, ADM said Nutriance helps developers to overcome this – regardless of whether they are looking to formulate for a beverage, bar, biscuit, cake or meal replacement application.

Nutriance is a source of branched chain amino acids, making it ideal for developers looking to reach the growing number of active or elderly consumers choosing to take a more holistic approach to their health, said Lutz Guderjahn, md for Corn, Europe at ADM.

“Whether they are following a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, or looking for natural positioning, this hydrolysed wheat-sourced protein concentrate ticks all the boxes and we’re extremely excited to add it to our vast ingredient portfolio,”​ he added.

Nutriance debuted at Food Ingredients Europe, held in Frankfurt last November.
