ADM expands European soy protein concentrate production


ADM has expanded soy protein production for use as a standalone ingredient but can also help incorporate it into tailored nutrition solution

In order to meet the significant growing demand for high quality plant-based proteins in the European market, ADM has announced it is expanding the production of non-GMO soy protein concentrate at its facility in Europoort, Netherlands.

The Europoort facility recently started producing non-GMO soy protein concentrate, which is available as a powder and will be suitable for all types of food applications.

With ADM’s comprehensive ingredient pantry and expertise, the US company can provide customers not only with soy protein as a standalone ingredient but can also help incorporate it into tailored nutrition solutions to satisfy growing market and consumer trends.

This production expansion adds to ADM’s vast plant-based protein ingredient portfolio, which combined with its expertise in systems, flavours and application development, helps give customers an edge in creating the latest food and beverage product innovations.

“We know that the one thing consumers aren’t willing to compromise on is taste, and as the only company that can provide both plant-based protein ingredients and flavour systems and solutions, ADM is a one-stop solution to help customers meet the growing demand in this market,” Perujo said.

“With more consumers adopting a Flexitarian diet, the need for plant-based solutions continues to grow in Europe,” says George Perujo, Product Management EMEAI, ADM Human Nutrition. “And besides being conscious about sourcing, Europeans are more likely to pay attention to the non-GMO status of their ingredients, so European origination and production was an important factor when we were considering options for this expansion.”
