Roquette is helping to slow and reverse these modern alimentary problems by offering NUTRIOSE® dietary fiber to the food, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
NUTRIOSE® is the name of a range of water soluble dietary fibers developed by the company.
NUTRIOSE® ingredients are developed either from wheat (NUTRIOSE® FB) or corn (NUTRIOSE® FM), both with high levels of fiber (85%) and both offering sugar-free grades. NUTRIOSE® soluble fiber's excellent digestive tolerance gives it a major role in achieving nutritional intake balance: “less sugar, fat and calories, more fiber” – all this while preserving a great taste.
NUTRIOSE® is progressively becoming an international reference for Soluble Dietary Fiber, with unexcelled benefits for consumers the world over.
In Canada, for example, NUTRIOSE® soluble fiber obtained the status of “dietary fiber.” Following this recognition, two new health claims for NUTRIOSE® were 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 glycemic responses.
In Korea, the Korean Food and Drug Administration (KFDA) has issued a favorable scientific opinion on the claim related to the prebiotic aspect of NUTRIOSE®.
ROQUETTE PEA FIBER completes the NUTRIOSE® range with an insoluble fiber.
White in color, neutral in taste and in the form of an easy-flowing powder, this ingredient is a texturizer.
Its effective water-retention under process conditions has a limited impact on viscosity – a unique behavior that combines fiber content and technological properties that promote cost optimization.
