VITACEL® CF Citrus Fiber

VITACEL® CF Citrus Fiber

Dietary fiber concentrate of soluble and insoluble fiber, 100% obtained from citrus peel.

VITACEL® Citrus Fiber is a plant-based dietary fiber sustainably produced from partially depectinized citrus peel leftover from pectin production.

Due to its high content of dietary fiber of > 75%, VITACEL® Citrus Fiber is optimally suited for improving the nutritional value of food products. As a solution with high consumer acceptance, VITACEL® Citrus Fiber combines nutritional advantages with outstanding functional benefits.

Its high water binding capacity and amphiphilic behavior, that supports the stability of emulsions, are key functional features of VITACEL® Citrus Fiber that set it apart from other plant-based fibers. Activation of the fiber by high shear force enhances its ability to absorb water. Thus, the fiber can improve viscosity, form stability, mouthfeel and other sensory or nutritive features in food and beverages.

Nutritional Added Value - VITACEL® Citrus Fiber Fits the Health Trend

Key features of VITACEL® Citrus Fiber used for food product development also have positive impacts on metabolic processes. The fiber has the potential to lower cholesterol levels by increasing the viscosity of the chyme. Based on similar principles, it positively affects the glycemic index of foods and blood glucose metabolism.

These are just a few examples of various health effects of dietary fiber that make an adequate intake of at least 25 g per day so important. VITACEL® Citrus Fiber also offers nutritional advantages through fiber enrichment and sugar or fat reduction without affecting sensory attributes.

It is an optimal solution for consumers looking for short and easy-to-understand lists of ingredients and healthy product options with high nutritional value that support healthier lifestyles.

The sustainable manufacturing process from a by-product of juice and essential oil production underlines its natural image.

As a labeling option, the descriptive name “citrus fiber” can be applied to underline its botanical source and nutritive benefit. Its legal name “liquid pectin” can be found in Art. 3 (2)(a)(iv) of reg. (EC) No 1333/2008.

Technological Added Value – VITACEL® Citrus Fiber Gives Foods Reliable Stability

The particularly pronounced ability to bind water and support the emulsion stability are key functional features of VITACEL® Citrus Fiber that set it apart from other plant-based fibers. Activation of the fiber by kinetic energy that disperses the fiber enhances its ability to absorb water. This permits VITACEL® Citrus Fiber to be used as a stabilizer and moisture retention agent to improve viscosity and form stability, mouthfeel and other sensory characteristics in food and beverages. VITACEL® Citrus Fiber shows a hydrophilic and hydrophobic behavior and supports the stability of oil in water emulsions by the formation of a three dimensional network of soluble and insoluble fibers. An ideal feature to contribute to stability in dressings or meat substitutes.
