Penford Food Ingredients, a leader in innovative carbohydrate systems and technologies, today announced the introduction of PenFibe® CW non-GMO white corn fiber. This corn fiber contains a minimum of 80 percent dietary fiber while simultaneously reducing calories when used in place of flour. PenFibe CW can be used in a variety of applications including baked goods and snacks. PenFibe CW is non-GMO, clean-label, non-allergenic and Kosher.
PenFibe CW has the following recommended applications and functional benefits:
· Baked goods
· Breakfast and nutrition bars
· Gluten-free products
· Easy to use
· Good gut tolerance
· Heat and pH stable
“PenFibe CW is another great product that addresses the nutrition gap in daily fiber consumption,” said John Randall, president of Penford Food Ingredients. “Additionally, its ability to aid in cutting calories is ideal for healthy weight management and in low-sugar products for both adults and children.”
PenFibe CW works well with Penford’s existing PenFibe portfolio including PenFibe® RS and PenFibe® RO. PenFibe RS is a potato-based insoluble resistant starch that provides at least 85 percent fiber and reduces caloric content. PenFibe RS can help lower calories and provide fiber in baked goods and snacks when it is used as a partial replacement for flour. Depending on the specific needs of a customer, these products can be blended to produce desired outcomes.
PenFibe RO is a non-GMO, potato-based soluble resistance starch that contains a minimum of 56 percent dietary fiber. It can reduce calories and provide fiber when used as a replacement for ingredients such as flour and sugar.
“We are constantly innovating to serve our customers’ needs, and right now, fiber is in high demand. Our PenFibe line is flexible enough to address the varying needs and applications in the food and beverage industry. We are excited to be able to add another great ingredient to this functional line of products,” concluded Randall.
