PureField Ingredients produces food ingredients and co-products at two state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Russell, Kansas.
The Nation’s Largest Manufacturer of Wheat Protein
Since 1995, this facility has been using locally sourced, high quality wheat to produce safe, trusted and natural food ingredients. It is the United States leading producer of wheat protein. Our vital wheat gluten, sold under the Heartland brand name, is valued for its quality, consistency and high protein levels.
Leading The Way Since 2001
When this facility began producing biofuels in 2001, it was the first new ethanol plant in the nation designed and built by industry leaders ICM and Fagen. Since then, strategic investments have reduced production bottlenecks and nearly doubled the facility’s permitted production capacity. It is one of the nation’s most cost-efficient ethanol facilities.
A Beneficial Partnership
PureField Ingredients takes advantage of synergies that exist between its two adjacent manufacturing facilities. The food ingredients facility generates starch by-products that are used to create valuable co-products. The starches are automatically pumped to the adjacent facility where they are blended with sorghum, corn and other feedstock sources to produce low-carbon ethanol. The synergies result in improved efficiency and lower costs at both facilities.
