Understanding Fibre

Taste is a number one purchase motivator for most global consumers, so we make sure our fibres have a clean taste as well as a neutral colour. They can also be easily blended into food and beverages to provide key functional benefits such as mouthfeel in beverages and binding cohesion in bars. As well as supporting gut and digestive health, our portfolio of fibres offers fat, sugar and calorie reduction, lower glycemic response, exceptional digestive tolerance and cholesterol management.

We work in partnership with you to respond to consumers’ changing tastes. From creating a new line of products to reformulating an existing line or launching a line extension, we can help you formulate the perfect product.



Changing lifestyles and increased life expectancy are leading to an increased awareness of the importance of fibre in the diet.
