Label-Friendly Pea Fiber
August 13, 2010
CLOSTER, N.J.—American Key Food Products offers pea fiber for use in bread, pasta, snacks, nutritional supplements, meal replacements and other products in which a high fiber content is an advantage.
A label-friendly ingredient, this pea fiber is made by Emsland Group from guaranteed non-GMO pure de-hulled pea flour by physical methods with no chemicals added to the process. Pea fiber provides the advantage of a fiber content of 58%, as well as neutral color and taste, making it ideal for low-calorie, low-carbohydrate, and fiber-enriched foods.
Its high water-binding capacity also helps to enhance yield and improve structure in meat products, such as hamburger, and can extend shelf-life in baked goods.
