Cargill™ soluble fiber
Healthy choice, clear results
The demand for products that are reduced in sugars*, but still deliver on taste and mouthfeel only continues to rise. However, reducing sugars is not as easy as it may seem, as sugars not only add sweetness, but they also have an essential bulking functionality. At the same time front-of-pack labeling systems, such as Nutri-Score, are swaying consumers towards healthier options. Often, this means products enriched with fibers. After all, most consumers are falling well short of the recommended fiber intake of minimum 25g** per day.
That is why we are proud to offer Cargill™ soluble fiber based on European corn and wheat. These plant-based and label-friendly ingredients help manufacturers answer consumer demand for sugar reduction and fiber enrichment while improving the nutritional profile of food & beverages.
