CP Kelco launched a new product line at the Food Ingredients Europe conference and exposition. NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber is a clean-label ingredient that is sustainably sourced, produced from intact citrus peels, and does not require an e-number in Europe, the company says. NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber can act as an alternative to egg, gum stabilizers and starch, as well as a fruit-flavored drink to demonstrate the new ingredient’s functional capabilities in reduced-sugar beverages, according to the company. Developed in response to continuing consumer demand for food and beverage products with less ingredients, less sugar and less fat, NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber can help manufacturers of these products meet clean-label requirements while achieving critical functionality that ensures desired taste and texture. Key applications include condiments, dressings, soups and fruit-flavored drinks. “This novel fiber will become a key go-to ingredient in the product developer’s toolbox,” said Jérôme Béra, senior vice president of global marketing at CP Kelco, in a statement. “Our journey with NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber is just beginning — we’re excited about its potential, based on positive feedback and collaboration from trials conducted with partners around the globe. We look forward to continuing to explore the possibilities for NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber with formulators across many application segments.”
