ADM has launched PearlEdge, a line of white color solutions derived from natural sources that deliver brilliant, stable and uniform color in a variety of food and beverage applications.
“Our team has been diligently working to perfect our new line of white color solutions, assuring its groundbreaking quality and performance,” said Hélène Moeller, vice president of global product marketing, ADM. “This rollout meets the evolving needs of customers and consumers, as brands look for titanium dioxide (TiO2) replacements that not only provide a bright white shade, but also meet clean-label targets.”
Robust quality control is a key to producing a precise, premium white shade without the need for modification, and ADM does that with a vertically-integrated supply chain, managing each step of the sourcing process. PearlEdge leverages patent-pending technology and extensive formulation expertise.
As a line of solutions, the PearlEdge portfolio is designed to address different applications, markets, certifications and regulatory needs. Specifically, it performs well in confections; powdered drink mixes and beverages; bakery icings and fillings; sugar-free offerings; soups, sauces and dressings; dairy and dairy alternatives; meat alternatives; and even pet food. PearlEdge also delivers elevated sensory appeal as an opacifying base coat for vibrant colors, and creates smoother texture in certain applications.
“We’re particularly excited about the possibilities with our PearlEdge Silk and Satin patent-pending technology,” Moeller said. “With superior stability and performance, as well as a white color of similar intensity as TiO2, PearlEdge Silk and Satin are game-changers for smooth white appearances in applications like panned confections and compressed tablets.”
PearlEdge Splash is another solution. ADM’s proprietary emulsion technology activates a cloud agent for beverages, creating visually appealing uniformity and opacity. PearlEdge Splash and PearlEdge Splash+ are compatible with other beverage ingredients, assuring no ringing, precipitation, sediments or staining in non-alcohol and alcohol beverages.
