International Fiber Corporation (IFC), the industry leader in high purity fiber products, has been named the exclusive North American distributor to the food and nutraceutical industry of Fibrex®, an all-natural dietary fiber made from the pulp of sugar beets after the sugar is extracted.
Fibrex® sugar beet fiber is a multifunctional dietary food ingredient that provides moisture retention and texture to bread and other food products and is available in different granulations from flakes to very fine powders. Fibrex® is manufactured by Danisco Sugar in Sweden and has a natural combination of 1/3 soluble and 2/3 insoluble fiber. Health benefits associated with soluble fiber include a reduction in blood cholesterol, equalizing blood sugar levels and positive effects on the digestive system. Fibrex® is all natural, non GMO, self affirmed GRAS, USDA approved in meats and poultry, HPB approved in Canada for use in foods and is also available in an Organic version.. Its high water retention rate ensures bread stays fresh/soft longer and other food products like beef patties and meat products juicier and with less cooking losses..
