Dietary fiber

Depending on the whole grains they select, bakers sometimes find that meeting the desired fiber content in whole-grain-based bakery products can be challenging. ADM/Matsutani LLC’s Fibersol line of dietary fibers enables manufacturers to boost the fiber content of a variety of finished baked goods. It also gives manufacturers options when they’re looking to reduce sugar and calorie content in their products, while adding softness in moist and intermediate moisture foods and crispiness to low-moisture foods to extend the shelf life of finished products.

Fruit products

According to Taura Natural Ingredients, the results of independent gastrointestinal (GI) testing conducted recently on two of its URC (Ultra Rapid Concentration) fruit products—JusFruit URC Apple Strawberry and JusFruit URC Mixed Berry—confirm that both registered as low GI. The low GI measure indicates that the products release energy slowly into the bloodstream, which can help stave off hunger and control blood glucose levels. URC is a process of concentrating the taste, texture and natural goodness of fruit into pieces, flakes and pastes for use in applications such as snacks, confectionery, chocolate, baked goods and cereals.
