CHICAGO, July 24, 2018—Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) today introduced a new line of specialty tapioca starches and tapioca maltodextrin ingredients in partnership with Vedan International.

ADM’s tapioca maltodextrin is non-GMO and is available in an organic version. ADM’s tapioca modified starches are also non-GMO.

“Over the past few years, ADM has been focused on expanding the range of our starch-based ingredient options – especially those that are plant-based –to provide cleaner label options and solutions for customers,” said Kris DiTommaso, vice president, ADM’s starch business. ”Tapioca’s neutral taste profile allows it to be used in a wide range of applications, and we are pleased to now add tapioca-based modified starches and maltodextrins to our growing starch ingredient portfolio.”

Starches help improve stability by binding water in food systems and can also enhance mouthfeel and control viscosity. They are ideal in applications such as dressings, sauces, bakery fillings, ice cream, yogurt, soups, bakery, beverages, meat and dry sausage applications.
