IDF™ Goes Boldly into Health and Wellness Applications

IDF to feature high-protein chicken powder in smoothies at SupplySide West

SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI – November 6, 2013 – International Dehydrated Foods, Inc. (IDF™),

a global leader in IDF® poultry ingredients, is continuing to bring chicken to the forefront of the

industry through innovative health and wellness applications that the company will feature at

SupplySide West.

Stephanie Lynch, Vice President of IDF’s Market, Sales, and Research and Development, is

developing a new line of poultry based ingredients targeting sports nutrition and health and

wellness applications. Prior to IDF, Lynch was the Global Market Manager for Dow Chemical’s

Food and Nutrition Business, and was based in Zurich. During her time at Dow, Lynch led their

food business in a strategic shift, which focused on the health and weight management benefits

of its dietary fibers, and launched Dow’s SATISFIT™ Weight Care Technology.

“With her global market knowledge of the health and wellness sector and technical prowess,

Stephanie has generated at IDF an exciting new R&D pipeline and launched two new IDF

products, a high-protein meat powder and collagen-rich broth powder. Both products are getting

traction with fast moving companies that plan to commercialize new products in 2014,” IDF

President Mike Gerke said.

Lynch plans to continue to expand the company’s offering of natural, real food ingredients

superior in nutritional quality for demanding sports nutrition and health and wellness applications.

New and exciting preliminary research offers promising benefits for the aging population, which

can be discussed under confidentiality.

At SupplySide West, IDF will offer samples of a protein smoothie made with its high-protein

chicken powder. IDF’s new offering is causing a buzz among application manufacturers as the

company positions its proteins as being able to support allergen-free claims and a “flavor-neutral”

ingredient without bitter or a lingering aftertaste, as compared to competitive protein ingredients

soy and whey.

“Our smoothies provide the nutritional and functional benefits of high quality protein as well as

chondroitin and collagen, and they taste delicious,” Lynch said.

To experience IDF’s high-protein chicken powder smoothie firsthand, visit IDF booth 31020 at

SupplySide West, November 14-15 in Las Vegas.


IDF® is a family-owned company in its 31st year of providing foundational, poultry-based

ingredients in the form of High-Protein and Meat Powder, Concentrated Broth, Extract and Fat.

The company is supporting the development of trending applications, such as meal replacement

drinks, sport nutrition and novel applications in soups and bars with its sustainable, natural
