Company: Fiberstar Inc., River Falls, WI
Ingredient Snapshot: Fiberstar has introduced the Citri-Fi 100 Series, a new clean-label pectin extender/replacement for fruit preparations for a variety of applications, including bakery fillings, fruit spreads, fruit snacks and yogurt fruit. The natural fiber is derived from citrus fiber sourced from orange processing, and is non-GMO and gluten-free. Due to its holistic complex, the fiber produces gelling properties and can be used to replace or extend pectin in applications using added pectin. High-sugar, low-pH fruit preparations made with Citri-Fi can be used in hot or cold processes, according to the company.
