ADM provides a wide-range of general purpose citric acid products for controlling acidity, providing flavor and color stability, and controlling moisture of various product forms. Citric acids are organic acidulants that have been used in the food industry for many years. In pet food, organic acids lower the pH of the diet and the gastrointestinal tract which may help deter acid-sensitive pathogens.

Amino acids
ADM provides purified amino acid sources to supplement pet food diets, including:

  • Lysine
  • Tryptophan
  • Threonine

DHA Natur™
DHA Natur™ is a dried algae that contains docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). It is a highly concentrated, vegetable-based DHA omega-3 source. DHA Natur has been developed from heterotrophic algae through advanced fermentation technology. DHA Natur is produced from a highly controlled production system. It is a perfect choice for salmon production, and can be applied to other facets of aquaculture, pet food and other animal diets. DHA Natur is currently approved for use in the Australia, Chile, European Union and New Zealand with plans to secure regulatory approval in the U.S. and Canada in the near future.

Emulsifiers & Stabilizers
We provide a variety of emulsifiers and stabilizers through which bio-based processing aids to improve production efficiency, water activity, shelf-life stability and texture for a broad range of products and applications.

Emulsifiers and stabilizers available through ADM include:

  • Glycerin
  • Propylene glycol
  • Lecithin
  • Xanthan gums
  • Mixed tocopherols

NovaXan® Xanthan Gum
NovaXan® xanthan gum, a polysaccharide, offers unique physical qualities as a stabilizer, emulsifier, thickener and/or suspending agent in milk replacers and liquid feed and pet food applications. Its ability to gel and increase the viscosity of liquids helps hold ingredients in suspension that may otherwise settle out of the mix.

Natural-Source Vitamin E
Natural-source vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) derived from vegetable sources is more biologically available to animal tissues than sources of synthetic vitamin E. ADM is the largest producer of natural-source vitamin E.

Chemically unique and biologically superior, Nova-E™ natural-source vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) is preferentially retained by body tissues. When compared to synthetic vitamin E, natural-source vitamin E is retained better and for a longer time in the body, making it more bioavailable. Vitamin E is an integral component of immune function and during stressful production stages, natural-source vitamin E may be especially beneficial.

We provide high-quality, digestible protein sources for dogs and cats through ingredients including:
  • CitriStim®

Versity is a cost-competitive, palatable, high-quality source of digestible amino acids from a yeast-based protein for use in diet and treat formulations for dogs and cats. It consists of dried, inactive (killed) yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).
Resistant starches
Our resistant starches are soluble dietary fiber that aids pet diets and treat-making. Research documents resistance starches lower a pet’s glycemic response.

Resistant starches available through ADM include:
  • Maltodextrin
