New VIDOPECTINE Application Bulletin: Low Methylester Amidated Pectin in Cup and Stir Yogurts

No fat or low-fat yogurts often lack mouth-feel and stability. The most common defect is whey separation, which is difficult to overcome as the yogurt curd is very sensitive to changes. The charge of the milk protein changes from negative to positive during fermentation/acidification.
Low methylester amidated pectin is suitable (if permitted) to improve the texture of fermented cup yogurts and can replace milk powder often added for this reason, without a negative impact on mouth-feel and texture.

VIDOFIBRES BF Sugar Beet Fibres for your Health

New Product Application Bulletin available now, please use the button below to download.

Healthy nutrition and regular exercise are the prerequisites for physical and mental well-being.

If you want to do something for your health, you should first look at your diet. The rule of thumb is ‘less fat, more fibre’. Nutritionists recommend a daily fibre intake of at least 30 g. That’s almost twice as much as an adult eats on average. A simple means of enriching the daily diet with fibre is VIDOFIBRES BF 5 sugar beet fibre.

Regular consumption of VIDOFIBRES BF 5 helps to counteract the increase in cholesterol levels. Fluctuations in blood sugar levels are reduced — an essential factor, especially for people with diabetes. Meals enriched with VIDOFIBRES BF 5 saturate particularly quickly due to the high fibre content and help cope with weight gain problems. Also, the fibres absorb liquid and swell strongly. This prevents constipation, the widespread disease of civilization. VIDOFIBRES BF 5 is naturally gluten-free (<5ppm) and thus offers a valuable contribution to a fibre-rich diet for gluten intolerance. Unlike oats and wheat bran, VIDOFIBRES BF 5 does not affect the absorption of zinc and iron.

With VIDOFIBRES BF 5 (5 times its weight in water binding) the user has the choice between a range of particle sizes from very fine to coarse to un-milled and even rolled flakes.

VIDOFIBRES BF 5 is available in different degrees of fineness.

VIDOFIBRES BF 5 sugar beet fibres in Bakeries

New Product Application Bulletin available now.

Many bakeries, large and small, use VIDOFIBRES BF 5 every day. Sugar Beet Fibre is most commonly used in soft bread production, but even biscuit manufacturers have changed their recipes in favour of VIDOFIBRES BF.

VIDOFIBRES BF 5 enriches your dough with fibres and gives it several positive properties without affecting its characteristic features. VIDOFIBRES BF 5 binds water especially well during normal baking processes: in a dough, approximately 3 – 4 times its own weight. Higher water content makes the bread not drying out as quickly, and it stays fresh longer. Besides, the bread is softer, making it look even fresher. VIDOFIBRES BF 5 is equally suitable for light as well as for dark loaves of bread.

VIDOFIBRES BF 5 is available in different degrees of fineness from fine to coarse to unmilled and even as rolled flakes, all of which are suitable for baking use.
