Innovations emphasize the company’s leadership in emerging and specialty solutions
Ardent Mills, the premier flour-milling and ingredient company, today launched two new products, Ardent Mills Egg Replace™ and Ancient Grains Plus™ Baking Flour Blend. The company designed these innovative, cost-effective solutions to enable its customers to capitalize on new market growth, meet evolving consumer preferences for quality ingredients and great taste, and help alleviate supply chain challenges.
“Ardent Mills is committed to delivering ingredients that bring value to the food life cycle, from production to consumption,” said Angie Goldberg, chief growth officer at Ardent Mills. “Our latest products, Ardent Mills Egg Replace and Ancient Grains Plus Baking Flour Blend, underscore our commitment to being strategic partners with our customers by providing proactive solutions to industry challenges while simultaneously meeting consumer demand.”
Ardent Mills Egg Replace
The demand for cost-effective egg alternatives continues to rise due to reoccurring avian flu, inflation, and growing interest in cage-free initiatives. To help solve this market need, Ardent Mills developed Ardent Mills Egg Replace, a 1:1 replacement for dried and liquid whole eggs that can provide long-term cost efficiency and supply stability. This innovative solution is composed of just four ingredients, including chickpea flour, and is designed for optimal taste, function, and ease of use in bakery applications. Additionally, it is gluten-free, vegan1, and contains no major U.S. food allergen or soy ingredients.
Ancient Grains Plus Baking Flour Blend
According to Ardent Mills’ proprietary research data, consumer interest in protein as part of a daily diet continues to grow, but the good taste remains a priority2. Ancient Grains Plus Baking Flour Blend is precisely blended from whole-food ancient grains and chickpeas to provide more quality protein than traditional flours. It was created to simplify baked goods innovations and reduce reliance on added protein ingredients while supporting finished-goods protein goals. Crafted with a mild flavor, Ancient Grains Plus Baking Flour Blend can be easily incorporated into a variety of bakery applications. Additionally, it is plant-based and gluten-free and contains no major U.S. food allergens.
The launch of Ardent Mills Egg Replace and Ancient Grains Plus Baking Flour Blend follows a series of recent company innovations, including BakeSafer™ Treatments, a food safety-oriented solution. These strides reflect Ardent Mills’ ongoing commitment to transforming how the world is nourished and providing solutions that drive emerging nutrition and innovation across plant-based ingredients.
