Cargill’s line of health-promoting ingredients spans several categories
MINNEAPOLIS – September 9, 2002 – Cargill Health & Food Technologies (H&FT) will present functional food prototypes focusing on women’s health at the Health Ingredients Europe (HiE) 2002 Conference Sept. 17-19th. Prototype products on display will include chocolates and chai tea made with AdvantaSoy™ Clear™ soy isoflavones. H&FT will be in Hall 1 booth D-19 at the HiE Conference.
H&FT has raised the bar on chai by adding soy isoflavones in the form of AdvantaSoy™ Clear™. Preliminary data suggests that soy isoflavones may benefit women by relieving some menopausal symptoms and may help maintain bone health. What is unique about both the chocolates and AdvantaSoy™ chai tea is that the products retain their traditional flavor, color and consistency.
"Cargill’s ability to enhance these popular food products is made possible by the unique processing of AdvantaSoy™ Clear™, which reduces the unpleasant odor and flavor typically associated with soy isoflavones," said H&FT President Ted Ziemann. "The products to be showcased in our booth prove that AdvantaSoy™ Clear™ meets the challenge of creating new functional foods that promote health and retain the delicious flavor and aroma which made them popular in the first place."
H&FT provides proprietary science and technology for food applications, new product development and regulatory support.
