Fibre Enrichment

Actilight® is a dietary soluble fibre containing 95% of totally fermentable fibre. It is an instant soluble fibre of vegetal origin with a taste profile similar to sucrose.

2_1174998545As a fibre, Actilight® has a low caloric value and provides nutrition and health benefits, such as improved intestinal transit and well-being.

Actilight® can be easily incorporated in liquid and dry foodstuffs allowing nutrition claims such as "source of fibre" and "High in fibre" with no process modification. Actilight® even improves the mouthfeel and flavours profile. For example, the incorporation of 6% of Actilight® in breakfast cereals permits "High in fibre" claim with cereal flavours enhancement and limited Maillard reaction.
