Archer Daniels Midland Company’s (NYSE: ADM) revolutionary isolated soy protein line CLARISOY earned the Best Beverage Ingredient Concept prize at the 2012 InterBev Awards ceremony in Las Vegas. CLARISOY is the world’s first vegetable-based protein that offers clarity and complete protein nutrition for beverage applications.
“CLARISOY is unlike any other isolated soy protein on the market today, and we’re thrilled to be recognized with such a respected award,” said Bruce Bennett, general manager of ADM Specialty Products–Oilseeds. “This is a testament to the significant role we expect CLARISOY to play in the future of the beverage industry around the globe.”
A finalist in the Beverage Innovation of the Year category at the Food Ingredient Excellence Awards in 2011, CLARISOY 100 is ADM’s premier transparent, isolated soy protein and enables 100 percent-soluble protein fortification in beverage applications with a pH below 4.0.
CLARISOY 150, the first extension to the CLARISOY product line, is a clean-tasting isolated soy protein specially processed for use in beverage systems with a pH of less than 4.0 with cloud systems or beverages neutralized to a pH of 7.0 or higher. CLARISOY 150 allows for greater use of soy protein in mildly flavored neutral beverages such as meal replacement and weight management products.
ADM’s family of isolated soy proteins is designed to help manufacturers meet the growth in demand for nutritionally-enhanced, refreshing beverages targeted at health-conscious consumers. Potential applications for CLARISOY include sports nutrition and recovery beverages, citrus-based drinks, fruit flavored beverages, fruit juice blends, lemonades, powdered beverage mixes and fortified waters.
The InterBev Awards, organized by FoodBev Media Ltd, are presented biennially at the InterBev Tradeshow. The program includes more than 30 categories and represents the most prestigious award scheme for the global beverage industry.
