When life gives you lemons...make fiber!
European consumers are looking to reach the challenging daily dietary goal of 25g of fiber per day.* Fortification is an obvious route to contribute to fiber intake, which is why fiber enrichment has never been more on trend. At the same time as this fiber boom, the Nutri-Score nutritional rating system is gathering steam across Europe. Sugars and calorie reduction, as well as fiber enrichment, are some of the obvious ways to help in improving Nutri-Score.
Furthermore, the label-friendly trend is maintaining momentum, as consumers seem to seek out nature-derived, familiar, simple, and sustainably sourced ingredients.
Fibers that are derived from food raw material may answer the key consumer calls for fiber enrichment, Nutri-Score improvement, and label-friendliness.
Introducing CitriPure® - a label-friendly citrus fiber obtained without chemical modification, providing nutritional properties & a great texture enhancement.
