ADM Natural Health and Nutrition is a division of the Archer Daniel Midland Company. Established to meet the rising demand for foods with particular health benefits and dietary supplements, ADM Natural Health and Nutrition manufactures and markets a worldwide range of nutritional ingredients – all derived from natural sources. Originally called ADM Nutraceuticals, the division was re-named ADM Natural Health and Nutrition in Autumn 2001 as part of ADM’s global re-branding programme.
ADM’s vast global crop processing capability enables it to isolate and extract valuable natural components for supplement and functional food use.
- Natural-source vitamin E
ADM is the world’s largest producer of natural-source vitamin E. Derived from vegetable oils, vitamin E is used in a wide range of products in dietary supplements and food applications. Vitamin E is an important lipid-soluble antioxidant and, as such, may help to support the immune function and promote a healthy heart.
- Decanox® mixed tocopherols
A combination of natural d-alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherols, mixed tocopherols are available in oil and powder forms. Mixed tocopherols are the antioxidant of choice and can be used in all food systems, including infant, follow-on and weaning food.
- Soya isoflavone concentrate
Novasoy® soya isoflavone concentrate is made under specially controlled conditions that do not disrupt the profiles and ratios of the natural isoflavones found in soya and unfermented soya foods. Novasoy provides a rich source of the naturally-occurring isoflavones, genistin, daidzin and glycitin, at a conveniently high concentration. This means that Novasoy can readily be incorporated into a wide range of health-promoting food products and dietary supplements.
ADM’s plant-based sterols have a number of food and supplement applications. Studies have shown that plant sterols can help to lower cholesterol levels in the bloodstream and to maintain a healthy prostate.
