Derived from the citrus peels of lemons and limes, the Fibertex CF citrus fibers are non-GMO, gluten-free, and have an inherent ability to control moisture and bind fat in various applications.
Ingredion Incorporated (Westchester, IL) has launched Fibertex CF 502 and Fibertex CF 102 citrus fibers, which are two clean-label texturizers made from citrus peels that help manufacturers replace undesirable and high-cost ingredients, as well as extend shelf life and stability of products across multiple applications. These include traditional and baked goods and snacks, emulsified dressings, tomato-based sauces and condiments, as well as processed meat and plant-based meat alternatives.
“Fibertex CF citrus fibers allow brands to solve complex clean label challenges while meeting changing consumer needs,” said Diana Nieto, Ingredion’s regional platform leader of Clean & Simple ingredients for the United States and Canada, in a press release. “With natural origins, upcycled sustainability, reliable supply chains and the inherent functionality of a from-the-plant product, Fibertex CF citrus fibers can elevate the eating experience, improve nutritional profiles by reducing fat and heighten label appeal in a wide range of applications.”
Derived from the citrus peels of lemons and limes, the Fibertex CF citrus fibers are non-GMO, gluten-free, and have an inherent ability to control moisture and bind fat in various applications. The citrus fibers also work synergistically with Ingredion’s other ingredients, including Novation and Homecraft functional native starch and flour ranges.
