CP Kelco to launch clean-label fibre solution at FiE
CP Kelco, a provider of nature-based ingredient solutions, is launching its Nutrava Citrus Fibre product line at FiE. Nutrava is a clean-label ingredient that is sustainably sourced, produced from intact citrus peels, and does not require an E-number in Europe.
CP Kelco will showcase its latest innovative ingredient in tasty prototypes at Stand #6G161 in Hall 6 of the FiE exposition.
“Our samples will demonstrate how Nutrava Citrus Fibre provides water-binding capacity, viscosity, suspension and emulsion stabilisation, while also contributing to dietary fibre intake,” said Susanne Sörgel, senior director, pectin & carrageenan strategic platform at CP Kelco.
At its FiE booth, CP Kelco will offer tastings of a low-fat, vegan mayonnaise containing Nutrava Citrus Fibre as an alternative to egg, gum stabilisers and starch, as well as a fruit-flavoured drink to demonstrate the new ingredient’s functionality in reduced-sugar beverages.
Developed in response to continuing consumer demand for food and beverage products with less ingredients, less sugar and less fat, Nutrava Citrus Fibre can help manufacturers of these products meet clean label requirements while achieving critical functionality that ensures their desired taste and texture. Key applications include condiments, dressings, soups and fruit-flavoured drinks.
“This novel fibre will become a key go-to ingredient in the product developer’s toolbox,” said Jérôme Béra, senior vice president, global marketing at CP Kelco. “Our journey with Nutrava Citrus Fibre is just beginning – we’re excited about its potential based on positive feedback and collaboration from trials conducted with partners around the globe. We look forward to continuing to explore the possibilities for Nutrava Citrus Fibre with formulators across many application segments.”
