Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) has opened its first commercial-scale plant to make Clarisoy, the vegetable-based protein that offers clarity and high-quality protein nutrition.
The transparent, isolated soy protein will be available for customers looking to purchase commercial-scale quantities beginning in June.
Bruce Bennett, general manager of ADM specialty products – Oilseeds, said: “Since launching Clarisoy at IFT last year, customer feedback has been positive, and demand for clean-tasting, transparent proteins continues to increase in the rapidly growing fruit and vegetable juice and sports nutrition categories.
"Creating a dedicated plant to produce our signature Clarisoy product line will allow us to serve growing customer demand for proteins in low pH beverages.”
The new plant, located in Decatur (US), will provide a new line extension for ADM’s existing isolated soy protein production. Clarisoy is created through a patented process that delivers a highly purified product with a 95% protein concentration on a moisture-free basis. Clarisoy 100 is fully soluble in beverage applications with a pH below 4.
Greg Morris, vice president of North American Oilseeds Processing, said: “Opening our first transparent isolated soy protein plant is another way that ADM will continue to serve the vital needs of a growing world. We expect this plant to be the foundation for an entire Clarisoy product line, as we continue to evolve it to meet our customers’ needs.”
