\n\n\n\nAsiros Nordic A/S (Sorø, Denmark) launched a line of Berry Shield Juice Premium Powders. The powders features Sunfiber from Taiyo GmbH, which replaces the need for maltodextrin, anti-caking agent that may cause a spike in blood sugar and negatively affect the gut.\n\nThe powders are 100% water soluble, certified non-GMO, vegan, and available in both organic and conventional options. They are standardized for anthocyanins and polyphenols and are polyphenol fingerprinted and DNA tested by the Tru-Id/ Purity IQ certification program to ensure purity. The powders come in elderberry, bilberry, aronia, tart cherry, lingonberry, and red and black currant.\n\n“The Berry Shield Premium line was developed with Sunfiber to add the science-based fiber back into the juice and produce great tasting berry ingredients that deliver prebiotic benefits along with efficacy and safety,” said Stefan Siebrecht, managing director at Taiyo, in a press release. “Replacing the sugar carrier maltodextrin with the functional dietary fiber adds tremendous health benefits for the consumers. In the United States, Sunfiber in combination is already a success especially due to the clean labeling of the products which are labeled as ‘carrier-free combination of juice and fiber’ or as ‘prebiotic juice powder.’”\n\nThe powders can be used in a range of applications, including tablets, capsules, soft gels, gummies, sachets, stick packs, as well as food and beverages.
