Fiberstar: Natural Fiber (Prepared Foods)

By | In the News | No Comments

Fiberstar will exhibit at the 2016 International Baking Industrial Exposition (IBIE) in Las Vegas to showcase Citri-Fi®, a natural, non-GMO fiber derived from citrus pulp.

Due to its unique composition of soluble and insoluble fiber and protein, this natural fiber provides functionalities such as water holding, stabilization, gelling, emulsification and clouding for various food applications. Citri-Fi can be labeled as citrus fiber, dried citrus pulp or citrus flour.

Show attendees can visit Fiberstar at IBIE Booth #470 to sample baked fruit bars that use Citri-Fi® for moisture management and improved texture over shelf-life.

Bakery formulators also should know that Fiberstar qualified for the “Best in Baking” program due to Citri-Fi®’s sustainable process and industry natural use to provide cost savings, great texture and nutritional improvements.

Citri-Fi® provides multiple benefits in bakery applications. They include:

• Pectin replacement/extension
• Natural emulsification
• Moisture management
• Fat and caloric reduction
• Egg extension
• Reduced syneresis in fillings

Citri-Fi® is a natural, non-GMO and National Organic Compliant ingredient that also gluten-free and allergen-free.
