The company said the new line, which joins its Colors from Nature portfolio, delivers brilliant, stable and uniform white coloring to a wide array of foods and beverages.
PearlEdge helps meet clean-label targets as it is derived from natural sources, including native corn starch, through ADM’s vertically integrated supply chain. The range is created using patent-pending technology, specifically for PearlEdge Silk and Satin, which provides superior stability, bright white intensity and smooth texture in certain 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.”
ADM said PearlEdge was designed to overcome tough formulation challenges.
As a line of solutions, the PearlEdge portfolio is designed to address different applications, markets, certifications and regulatory needs. ADM said 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 it creates smoother texture in certain applications, the company said.
“We’re particularly excited about the possibilities with our PearlEdge Silk and Satin patent-pending technology,” said Moeller.
“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 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 alike.
