FiberStar & FSL launched Citri-Fi Citrus Fiber products to offer customers a way to save costs by reducing the amount of egg required in various bakery applications. The great advantage of this solution is that while saving customers costs (and hedging them against price fluctuations in the volatile egg market) the product stability and nutritional profile is greatly improved offering the consumer a benefit as well. This is a true win-win healthier and cost-effective solution.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends at least 30 grams of dietary fiber consumption per day,1 however, consumers in the GCC region are not consuming this required amount due to a high consumption of processed foods – especially amongst children. Adding Citrus Fibers to bakery items allows children to enjoy their favourite treats while also providing them with much needed dietary fiber to optimize their nutrition. Claims of fiber enriched products are now growing in various food and beverage categories as consumers become more health and label conscious.
Citrus Fiber is made from juice cells, peels, rag or segment membranes, and cores from oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruits, and tangerine.
Citrus Fiber contains carbohydrates, fiber (total dietary, soluble and insoluble), protein, and ash.
