Simplicity inspired by the seas
Seaweed has a long history of being used as food, in various parts of the world. In recent years, consumers’ favorable perception of seaweed has been reinforced. It’s being hailed as a highly nutritious food, thanks to the many healthy nutrients it contains.
WavePure® is a seaweed powder range based on native seaweed obtained without any chemical modification. It’s a unique ingredient with texturizing properties while maintaining stability in the gelled dairy dessert and imparting a neutral taste. Since it can be labeled with a reference to the familiar seaweed source, WavePure® is fully in line with growing consumer demand for label-friendly options. Cargill is working hard to ensure that WavePure® will soon also be able to benefit from the Red Seaweed Promise™ advantage.
- Label-friendly: Nature-derived and familiar ingredient
- Nutritional Boost: Low calorie content, rich in fiber and other naturally healthy elements (i.e. proteins, vitamins, & antioxidants)
- No Chemical Modification: whole, not-transformed seaweed; all the natural components of the seaweed are kept intact
WavePure® in Action!
Cargill’s first series under this innovative range is WavePure® ADG which is recognized as a traditional food ingredient in the EU. It includes WavePure® ADG 8250, which is based on a blend of Gracilaria seaweeds, and which contributes to the mouthfeel and maintains stability in gelled dairy desserts, with limited impact on sensorial profile.
