Natural fiber containing native pectin
Citri-Fi from Fiberstar can replace pectin when used in high-brix/low-pH environments such as yogurt fruit preparations. Because Citri-Fi is made using a mechanical and clean process, the insoluble and soluble fiber stays intact. It offers several advantages over pectin, such as no reactivity with calcium, heat stability and ease of use. Citri-Fi can network and bond with proteins to stabilize them during processing and storage and it produces a smooth mouthfeel which enhances the final texture.
Protein-rich ingredient solution for snacks
Arla Foods Ingredients’ Health to-Go, an innovative protein-rich ingredient solution, can be used to create convenient snack products. The solution is a combination of Nutrilac PB-8420 proteins and Capolac calcium from milk. It is suitable for use in milk-based drinks, juices and snacks. The company has created Protein & Calcium Bites that offer longer-lasting softness. They are rich in dairy proteins that have excellent amino acid and DIAAS profiles.
Superior digestive tolerance, clean taste and texture
Tate & Lyle’s Promitor soluble corn fiber is easily incorporated into a variety of dairy applications, significantly boosting fiber without creating a chalky or grainy mouthfeel. Recent clinical studies show that adding it to a food or beverage improves the absorption of calcium, likely because the soluble corn fiber, acting as a prebiotic, is fermented by the microbiota in the digestive tract, which lowers pH and allows an increase in absorption of calcium and other minerals.
Soluble dietary fiber ingredients
Fibersol from ADM/Matsutani is compatible with all dairy product applications. It is stable under all processing and packaging conditions and will maintain fiber content during culturing or fermenting. Fibersol can significantly improve the flavor of dairy foods by influencing taste. It also improves the flavor of low-solids dairy foods, classical acidic products and dairy foods to which other flavors may be added.
