Dips, sauces and dressings

Dips, sauces and dressings

FIBERTEX CF 502 citrus fibers elevate low-fat spoonable dressings to the next level by supporting a clean label, providing a texture match to high-oil control, and by reducing costs compared to functional native starches through synergistic effects.

Plant-based meats

Plant-based meats

FIBERTEX CF citrus fibers can be used in meat alternatives to incorporate and retain moisture, and to improve cook yields. The juiciness and slightly softer texture specifically make FIBERTEX CF citrus fibers interesting for tumbled and marinated chicken meat products and chicken-like textured alternatives. 



FIBERTEX CF citrus fibers support meat producers in replacing undesirable ingredients, specifically in poultry and ground meat by providing a unique softness versus existing starch solutions when applied directly to the meat substrate or inside the marinades.
