International Dehydrated Foods Inc. (IDF), Springfield, Mo., will bring chicken protein to the beverage industry through innovative health-and-wellness applications that the company will showcase at SupplySide West, taking place Nov. 12-16 in Las Vegas.

Stephanie Lynch, vice president of marketing, sales, and research and development (R&D) for IDF, developed a new line of poultry-based ingredients targeting sports nutrition and health-and-wellness applications.

“With her global market knowledge of the health-and-wellness sector and technical prowess, Stephanie has generated at IDF an exciting new R&D pipeline and launched two new IDF products: a high-protein meat powder and collagen-rich broth powder,” IDF President Mike Gerke said in a statement. “Both products are getting traction with fast-moving companies that plan to commercialize new products in 2014.”

At SupplySide West, IDF will offer samples of a protein smoothie made with its high-protein chicken powder. The chicken protein is able to support allergen-free claims and acts as a “flavor-neutral” ingredient without a bitter or lingering aftertaste, the company says.

“Our smoothies provide the nutritional and functional benefits of high-quality protein as well as chondroitin and collagen, and they taste delicious,” Lynch said in a statement.

Lynch plans to continue to expand the company’s offering of natural, real food ingredients with superior nutritional quality for sports nutrition and health-and-wellness applications. New preliminary research offers promising benefits for the aging population, which can be discussed under confidentiality.

IDF will exhibit at booth 31020 at SupplySide West.
