Fiber Fit for Beverage – Archive
As consumers better understand the health benefits of increasing fiber in their diets, our customers have found unique and novel ways to meet consumer demands to supplement fiber intake. ADM listened to the needs of this growing market and introduced Fibersol-2 AG. Fibersol-2 AG is highly dispersible and soluble in water, and is an ideal way for companies to formulate on-the-go products containing the fiber their customers are looking for. In addition, Fibersol-2 AG’s low sugar and caloric values provide a tremendous benefit to companies formulating it into their products. Overall, it is the perfect carbohydrate for “better for you” product development needs. . Fibersol-2 AG gives our customers confidence in bridging consumer demands into finished products and closing the gap on this growing market need.
When manufacturers want to formulate “better for you” products, they often look to fiber to provide a nutritional boost. A beverage customer wanted to reformulate their line of “better for you” dry beverage mixes to include dietary fiber on their Nutrition Facts panel, without changing the essential qualities of the products that their consumers knew and loved. They turned to ADM’s R&D team to investigate whether Fibersol®-2 AG could provide the fiber they needed for their beverage mixes. Fibersol®-2 AG allowed them to increase their fiber content with minimal formulation adjustments, providing a highly stable, 90 percent concentrated form of soluble dietary fiber that was highly dispersible and soluble in water, all while maintaining the sensory and functional properties they wanted in their finished products, and achieving a calorie reduction by using Fibersol®-2 AG to replace 4 kcal/g carbohydrates. Our R&D team assisted them in every step of developing formulations and prototypes, and helped them meet their goals quickly and cost efficiently. The customer had a very successful launch of their reformulated beverage mixes, and they have since worked with our R&D team on several reformulation projects.
