EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA – Cevena Bioproducts has announced it will be hosting a VendorWorks seminar during SupplySide West in Las Vegas from 11:00-11:50 am on Thursday October 19 in room 3601.
The seminar, entitled, “Fiber Ingredient Review – The Latest Ingredient Trends in the Food & Dietary Supplement Markets,” will be led by Richard Staack, Ph.D., MBA, Vice President of Cevena Bioproducts.
Dr. Staack will discuss how manufacturers can add fiber to their products and meet the growing demand for fiber. “Fiber is one of the most sought after ingredients today due to the recent RDA standards of 25-35 grams daily, but most Americans manage to get only half that - 12 to 15 grams - from their daily diet. Consumers are looking for ways to increase the fiber in their diets without the added calories,” he says.
Several fibers, including Viscofiber®, a natural soluble fiber derived from oat and barley, will be evaluated based on research, indications and market potential. Viscofiber® is the only high-viscosity and high-concentration oat and barley ß-glucan available in a GRAS-affirmed, multi-functional ingredient. Viscofiber® has been clinically proven to significantly improve glycemic response and cholesterol levels.
