ADM has launched Superb, a soya protein fibre developed to boost protein and fibre content, control moisture retention and improve texture in meat products.
Derived from the cell walls of the soya bean seed (cotyledon), it consists of a matrix of protein and insoluble fibre. This increases the water binding capabilities to manage moisture within food systems, enhancing strength and flexibility while maintaining texture and reducing cooking time.
Featuring a minimum of 40 percent fibre and 30 percent protein content, the ingredient is suitable for use in a wide range of meat-based applications including ground meat systems, emulsified meats and whole-muscle meat products.
