A new way to fulfill the need for fiber
Today’s consumers know that fiber is good for digestive health and can support weight management. Yet studies show fiber consumption is only at about 40% of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee goal (2010).
You can help consumers find the higher-fiber products they seek and enjoy fiber’s health benefits with new VERSAFIBE™ dietary fibers. This new family of insoluble fibers won’t impact the taste, texture or color of your products. So you can provide a great eating experience in higher-fiber bakery products, cereals, snacks and pastas and introduce fiber in unexpected places, including:
- Cookies and bars
- Breakfast cookies
- Bakery dry mixes
- Frozen meals
Feature new label claims and reduced calories
Your products can stand out in the marketplace with claims like “good source of fiber” or “excellent source of fiber” as well as “gluten-free.” With some VERSAFIBE™ dietary fibers, you can also promote “grain-free” on your labels. And health-conscious consumers will appreciate potential calorie and carbohydrate reduction.
Choose from two VERSAFIBE™ dietary fiber varieties:
VERSAFIBE™1490 dietary fiber
