Fiberstar Inc., a privately held, innovative company, won the 2015 Food Ingredients Europe Natural/Organic Innovation Award with its Citri-Fi
® 100 clean label gelling pectin replacement technology. This technology emerges at a time when consumers are seeking recognizable ingredient statements and pectin replacements/extensions due to the evolving market conditions. The Citri-Fi 100 Series is easy-to-use and may provide cost savings since there is no need for a pre-hydration step or added calcium to produce the gelling properties. This technology can be used in bakery fillings, jams & jellies, fruit preparation in yoghurts and fruit-based snacks.
