International Fiber Corporation has announced the introduction of NutraFiber®, the purest, most abundant supply of insoluble dietary fiber available to the food industry. NutraFiber® cellulose is a multifunctional dietary fiber ingredient that cuts carbohydrates and calories, increases fiber content and improves the overall quality of food products.
“NutraFiber® is designed to meet the needs of our customers,” said John Pond, President & CEO of IFC. “NutraFiber® is the solution for a low carb, low cal, and low cost product that will increase our customer’s bottom line—without compromising on quality."
A highly purified powdered cellulose derived from all natural plant sources, NutraFiber® is 99% total dietary fiber, making it an excellent choice for fiber enrichment in many applications. NutraFiber® makes an ideal bulking agent that will increase yields, while reducing net carbohydrates and calories in finished foods.
Such a product is in high demand, as the low carb lifestyle has recently swept the nation. A study by The Hartman group notes that nearly 188 million Americans (67% of the U.S. population) eat, or have attempted, a diet low in carbohydrates.
“With nearly two-thirds of the American population following the low-carb lifestyle, we are pleased to present the purest low carbohydrate solution for a great tasting product,” said Pond.
International Fiber Corporation is the industry leader in high purity fiber products, providing customized product solutions to meet a changing marketplace. It has broad global presence with 5 modern manufacturing facilities located in North Tonawanda, NY, Nitro, WV, Urbana, OH, Anacortes, WA and Temse, Belgium, with distribution warehouses throughout the world. Its product roster includes familiar names like Solka-Floc®, Just Fiber®, Alpha-Cel™, KEYCEL®, FloAm® and Qual Flo™.
