VIVAPUR® FB Stabiliser Systems

VIVAPUR® FB is an optimized stabiliser system of pectin and alginate for fruit preparations, fruit fillings and jams. The combination of the two hydrocolloids creates a synergistic effect that secures high flexibility, heat stability, syneresis control and a soft texture for easier handling and excellent flavor release. 

Easy handling without compromising bake stability

Compared to pectin or alginate VIVAPUR® FB requires a lower gel strength in order to provide the necessary level of bake stability and shows significantly stronger thixotropic behavior. Fillings are easy to pump and will rebuild the structure after shear stress and keep the bake stability. Due to this characteristic behavior, fruit fillings made with VIVAPUR® FB can be filled into large containers at low temperatures without core burning, and with less flavor and texture loss.

Formulation and process flexibility

Broad tolerance of pH, calcium content and soluble solids makes VIVAPUR® FB a particularly flexible asset in filling formulations and suitable for numerous fruit types. In addition to high solids formulations, VIVAPUR® FB stabiliser systems produce a top result with as little as 30 % solids. Fruit fillings with VIVAPUR® FB show good bake stability, even under process parameters where alginate and pectin alone will not work. This gives R&D a wider field of new possible products based on a single stabiliser system. 


VIVAPUR® FB 850 S1 is highly tolerant of variations in the calcium level. Excellent bake stability is obtained with various fruit types, despite variations in their natural calcium content.
