A range of soluble dietary fibres claimed to offer health benefits without any taste impact are to be showcased at next month’s Health Ingredients Europe (Hi Europe) in Frankfurt.

Sunfiber, an all-natural, soluble dietary fibre – one of only five ingredients to receive ‘true-fibre’ status from the US Food and Drug Administration – will be available from Taiyo.

According to the Japanese producer, Sunfiber exhibited excellent pH, heat and freeze-thaw stability, and was an ideal ingredient for healthy lifestyles.

Taiyo said visitors to its stand would also be able to experience a wide range of versatile, naturally-derived ingredients that offer both excellent taste and health-boosting properties.

Enrich both food and drinks

Offering a combination of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibres, the products can be used to enrich both food and drinks.

As it’s tasteless, odourless and completely soluble in water, Sunfiber has no visible effect on the end product, Taiyo claimed.

It is clinically proven to lower the glycaemic index, improve mineral absorption, maintain digestive health, and is even able to reduce postprandial-blood sugar peaks in healthy as well as glucose-intolerant people, the company added.

The product is available in different qualities, depending on the desired application and claims. There are also three new organic varieties to choose from.

Comprehensive portfolio

Hi Europe provided the perfect environment to discover Taiyo’s comprehensive portfolio of functional ingredients, said md Dr Stefan Siebrecht.

“We can tailor our ingredients for a wide range of purposes, applications and formulations to meet individual requirements.

“Our ability to create holistic product concepts brings healthy food and beverages to life that appeal to both our customers and end consumers alike.

“We are looking forward to discussing our product and service portfolio with visitors.”
