Dietary Fibers are carbohydrates which are not digested in the small intestine, but are fermented fully or partially by the bacterial flora in the large intestine. The fermentation of such fibers leads to formation of short chain fatty acids.
Studies show that our diets lack dietary fiber: the average fiber consumption is around 15g/day – however, WHO daily recommended intake is 25-30g.
Pure Fiber’s Corn Fiber is a non-digestible, high molecular weight polysaccharide, obtained directly from the bran of corn through a state-of-the-art fiber extraction and separation process, located in Dunaföldvár, Hungary, operated by our partner, Pannonia Bio. The process extracts the fiber naturally present in the bran of the corn.
Pure Fiber’s Corn Fiber is GMO free, gluten free, vegan and antibiotic free.
Moreover, its composition is well documented, constant and guaranteed throughout the year, thus ensuring a reliable supply.
Corn Fiber in powder form is easy to use and compatible with different manufacturing processes.
Corn Fiber is a label-friendly fiber which is heat-stable across a large range of pH, with good solubility and low viscosity.
It can replace part of digestible carbohydrates, leading to calorie reduction and fiber fortification. “High fiber source” claim can be achieved in snacks, cereal bars and bakery applications.
> 1,500 tons of Corn Fiber available starting in 2021
Trial amounts of Corn Fiber are available now from a demo-plant
Lower cost than any competing product
Our team of scientists and engineers are also developing a large range of fibers: cellulose, chitosan, and proteins, which will be available very soon as well.
