Different particle sizes and shapes: fine/medium-fine powders, granules and un-rolled or rolled flakes.
For innumerable applications and variations in the creation of appearance, bulk, volume, bite, texture, form and stability.
Food manufacturers today are using vegetable or plant fibres in countless applications because of their fibre content and water-binding capability. A large variety of such fibres from different sources is available to the food producer these days, but these fibres mostly come in the form of more or less fine powders.
In many applications like e.g. stuffings, coatings, processed meat, cereals, fruit, fitness and cereal bars, fillings, bread, weight loss products or meal replacers and many more however, product development might prefer to have the option of using fibres with a specified coarse particle size, a granular type or even distinct shapes like rolled flakes. These permit the creation of a different texture, apearance, bite or form, they can add volume or stability to a product, or, like e.g. in whole-grain bread or a cereal product, could match the form and mouth-feel of the grains used.
VIDOFIBRES BF sugar beet fibres are available in a range of powders from super-fine to fine, but above all also in the form of granules, un-rolled and rolled flakes, but still with the same water-binding capacity, fibre content and insoluble/soluble fibre ratio. The granules and flakes take up the available moisture right away and swell quickly. They are able to withstand a good deal of mechanical treatment like mixing and forming without losing their integrity and shape.
