Archer Daniels Midland Company will introduce CLARISOYTM 150, the first extension to the CLARISOY product line, at the 2012 Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting and Food Expo in Las Vegas, June 26-28. CLARISOY is the world’s first vegetable-based protein that offers clarity and complete protein nutrition for beverage applications.
CLARISOY 150 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. Due to its clean flavor and high solubility in higher pH ranges, CLARISOY 150 allows for greater use of soy protein in mildly flavored neutral beverages such as meal replacement and weight management products. The new product enables beverage manufacturers to comfortably formulate with up to 10 grams of protein.
“We continue to see an increase in customer demand for ways to improve protein quality in neutral and low pH beverages,” said Bruce Bennett, general manager of ADM Specialty Products – Oilseeds. “With our newly built commercial-scale CLARISOY production plant, ADM is poised to meet the growing needs of beverage manufacturers seeking to deliver protein in their products.”
Also at IFT, ADM will present the science behind the CLARISOY line of isolate soy proteins at the New Products & Technology Table Top Showcase on Wednesday, June 27 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Dr. Russ Egbert, director of protein research for ADM, will be available to discuss the distinctive properties of CLARISOY throughout the showcase. Attendees also will be able to sample Harmony Soymilk made with CLARISOY 150.
Expo attendees are also invited to stop by the ADM booth (#2020) to sample Fruit and Veggie Jive, a nutritional beverage that includes CLARISOY 100 transparent soy protein plus one serving of fruit and one serving of vegetables. 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 100 and CLARISOY 150 offer such a clean taste and smooth mouth-feel that formulating beverages that blend soy and dairy proteins is now a viable option,” said Dr. Egbert. “When soy and dairy proteins are blended, the digestion rate is extended which makes CLARISOY especially beneficial for formulating sports nutrition and recovery beverages.”
