We are very excited to introduce you to our latest development from Herbafood GmbH, the world leaders of the infamous Citrus Fibre.
Citrus Fibre has a long established reputation for being the best fibre on the market for water retention, yield improvements, natural clean label texturising to name a few. Citrus fibre as fantastic as it is always had one flaw....and that was that it needed high sheer to activate and prefers to activate in a pH neutral, non saline environment.
Herbafood have always aspired to create a family of AQ PLUS (the highly functional) fibres and the first sibling is now born.
Herbacel Apple Plus A09 has now been finally completed after many years of painstaking research and development. This new exciting AQ family member offers all the same benefits of its Citrus Sibling but additionally offers:
Natural colour enhancement due to its polyphenol content
NO NEED for high sheer processing to activate
HYDRATION NOT AFFECTED by acids or salts
We ran a series of tests comparing Herbacel Apple Plus A09 with Cornstarch Prima 300 to see how it behaved. Please see trial data below.
As you can see from the test data Herbacel Apple Plus A09 out performs Cornstarch on every element.
SAUCES - to add viscosity and additional colour depth
BAKERY - to add yield improvements, improve fresh keeping and add natural colour depth
BRINE - to add yield improvement, improve moisture, needle injection suitable
FRUIT PREPS - add viscosity, improve colour depth
SMOOTHIES - stabilise particulates, improve colour depth
