Roquette is helping to slow and reverse these modern alimentary problems by offering NUTRIOSE® dietary fibre to the food, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
NUTRIOSE® is the name of a range of water soluble dietary fibres developed by the company.
NUTRIOSE® ingredients are developed either from wheat (NUTRIOSE® FB) or corn (NUTRIOSE® FM), both with high levels of fibre (85%) and both offering sugar-free grades. NUTRIOSE® soluble fibre‘s excellent digestive tolerance gives it a major role in achieving nutritional intake balance: “less sugar, fat and calories, more fibre” – all this while preserving a great taste.
NUTRIOSE® is progressively becoming an international reference for Soluble Dietary Fibre, with unexcelled benefits for consumers the world over.
In Canada, for example, NUTRIOSE® soluble fibre recently obtained the status of “dietary fibre”. And two new health claims for NUTRIOSE® have recently been published in the Official Journal of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/854. These confirm that NUTRIOSE® contributes to the maintenance of tooth mineralization by reducing tooth demineralization; and also induces lower postprandial glycaemic responses.
In Korea, the Korean Food and Drug Administration (KFDA) has issued a favourable scientific opinion on the claim related to the prebiotic aspect of NUTRIOSE®.
ROQUETTE PEA FIBRE completes the NUTRIOSE® range with an insoluble fibre.
White in colour, neutral in taste and in the form of an easy-flowing powder, this ingredient is a consumer- friendly texturizer.
Its effective water- retention under process conditions has a limited impact on viscosity, - a unique behaviour that combines fibre content and technological properties that promote cost optimization.
