International Dehydrated Foods

International Dehydrated Foods, Inc. (IDF®) is devoted to crafting real ingredients from real food. Upholding poultry’s natural goodness, IDF® creates ingredients with integrity, bringing chicken’s foundational flavor and nutrition to our partners’ food, beverage, and supplement applications.

From easily digestible proteins to flavorful chicken broths and fats, all IDF® ingredients are inspired by the natural goodness and flavor of chicken. Our uniquely gentle process enables us to capture and uphold the most appealing qualities of chicken, from its clean umami taste to its value as a naturally complete, easily digestible protein. IDF® poultry-based, protein-fortifying ingredients serve as a canvas upon which chefs and formulators can build inspired flavor profiles and nutritious applications with delicious, natural chicken ingredients.


Certified Products:

Poultry Broth

Introducing IDF® Concentrated Chicken Broth, the shelf-stable, easy-to-use option for chefs who need full flavor, faster. No more thawing and tempering frozen chicken stock! Deliver rich umami flavor that’s naturally rich in protein* and low in fat, all with the convenience of safe, easy handling at room temperature (> 60˚F). It’s allergen-free, gluten-free, and paleo-certified – eco-friendly, too, using less energy in storage and shipping than frozen products, with a full year of shelf life.

Chicken Fat

Consumers agree that health, nutrition, and protein are all important components of their diets, but it’s flavor that ultimately wins out. With the natural chicken flavor, richness, and depth of IDF® Chicken Fat ingredients, you can build unique and compelling flavor profiles that draw on the naturally savory flavor of chicken. From classic creations to culinary combinations, IDF’s shelf-stable chicken fats provide a beautiful foundation upon which you can craft appetizing applications.

Dried Poultry

Our original chicken protein powder captured the foundational nutrition of chicken in an easy-to-use, accessible form that is widely used in sauces, seasonings, and ready meals. Now, we’ve boosted the power of chicken’s naturally complete protein in our CHiKPRO™ Chicken Protein Isolate Powder, a complete, ready-to-eat protein ideal for fortifying protein supplements and a range of functional food and beverage applications.

Our History

In 1982, entrepreneur William (Bill) Darr founded IDF®. Informed by his agribusiness education, experience working in quality control within the food industry, and his unique vision for elevating the quality and capability of poultry-based real ingredients, Bill Darr grew a business that has continually set the gold standard for poultry-based food ingredients.

In addition to creating best-in-class ingredients, IDF® has consistently led the way as the first, including these industry-changing achievements:

  • the first to introduce shelf-stable chicken fat to the market
  • the first to develop and introduce frozen 32% solids chicken broth to the industry
  • the first to introduce the “Fast Dissolution” broth powder tower dryer, which creates a natural, clean-label broth powder with no carriers
  • the first to introduce a high-protein, low-fat chicken powder with high digestibility

Since the end of 2019, IDF® joined Symrise, a global supplier of fragrances, flavorings, cosmetic active ingredients and raw materials, as well as functional ingredients. IDF® became part of Diana, in the Nutrition Segment of Symrise.

Real Dedication



Agriculture is going to become more important every year as there are more people to be fed, not only in Missouri and the United States, but also throughout the world.
—William (Bill) Darr, founder of IDF®

One of our most fundamental needs as well as the foundation for a healthy and happy life, food inspires our enduring commitment to our customers, their customers, our team members, and the communities in which we operate.

By nature, IDF’s high-quality chicken ingredients connect us with families in our Southwest Missouri community and around the globe.

While ensuring the availability of IDF’s wholesome, delicious food ingredients can make a real difference in what people eat, the desire to help goes far beyond the IDF® mission.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.



100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 



Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
