Citrus Fibre Focus

HERBACEL®-AQ® Plus is obtained from freshly harvested apples (resp. citrus fruits) which are gently dried after extracting the juice (and oils). Non-fibrous compounds such as plant-specific sugars, colouring and aroma components are carefully removed during several washing steps, whereby the natural cell wall structure is practically maintained. This results in neutral sensory properties as well as high water-binding and retention capacity and furthermore it improves the nutritional physiological quality of the product. These high-swelling fruit fibres ensure longer periods of satiety, are beneficial for improving gut motility and stimulate digestion.
