New Fiber from Cellulose Suitable for Food Applications

The average American consumes just 14-15g of fiber a day, well below the recommended 20-35g.

As people around the world eat more processed convenience foods, their consumption of healthy dietary fiber typically falls far short of recommended minimums. The average American consumes just 14-15g of fiber a day, well below the recommended 20-35g. Fortefiber soluble dietary fiber is derived from cellulose and is suitable for many food and nutritional supplement formulations. It has been shown in clinical trials to provide several health benefits related to promoting a healthy lifestyle, such as maintaining normal levels of blood glucose, cholesterol and insulin in healthy people. Applications range from liquids to hard-formed products. The vendor’s proprietary process makes it water soluble. Fortefiber does not cause allergic reactions, bloating or gas, and does not have a bad taste or texture when used at typical product formulation levels.
