New concentrate of FenuLife fibre
Acatris Inc, of Minnesota, has launched FenuLife Concentrate, a new grade of FenuLife. FenuLife Concentrate is a fibre ingredient clinically proven to slow carbohydrate absorption. Its GI-lowering properties help prevent sharp spikes in blood sugar and insulin normally found with carbohydrate intake. FenuLife Concentrate also may be beneficial for food product developers looking for stabilizers. The fenugreek galactomannans in FenuLife Concentrate have been shown to have the highest water solubility, and functionality studies show this fibre to have superior emulsification properties, the company says.
