Cargill WavePure ADG in desserts

WavePure® ADG

for Gelled Dairy Desserts

Our first offering in the WavePure range, the WavePure ADG series is sourced from Gracilaria red seaweed, which is considered a traditional food ingredient in the European Union. As a result, there are various options for labeling with a reference to the seaweed source.

From a formulation perspective, the ADG series is well-suited for dairy desserts, serving as a recognizable alternative to less familiar ingredients. With WavePure ADG, smooth and creamy textures bring an optimal organoleptic experience, while also offering excellent gelling and thickening properties.

Whilst we launch WavePure ADG in Gelled Dairy Desserts, offering full technical support to our customers in this application, we also continue to investigate the benefits of WavePure ADG for other applications.
