Edible Fibre

Satisfying China’s Need for Healthy Food Products

With growing demand for products that promote healthy living, Jebsen Industrial is focused on delivering and supporting innovative food ingredients in Greater China.

Derived from the chicory plant, Sensus brand Frutafit® inulin, polyfructose and Frutalose® oligofructose are functional ingredients with many desirable properties. They:

  • Promote digestive health by enriching the fibre content of food; 
  • Stimulate the production of beneficial bacteria in the colon; 
  • Help with weight management due to low caloric value and an ability to promote satiety; and 
  • Boost calcium absorption to improve bone health. 

In powdered or partially hydrolyzed formulations, the Frutafit and Frutalose fibres are colourless, with a neutral taste. The edible fibre can thus be used to enrich many foodstuffs without affecting their appearance, texture, or flavour.

The edible fibre can even work as a flavour enhancer. They mask the aftertaste of high-intensity sweeteners, and also improve the texture and the creamy mouthfeel of low-fat yoghurt, cake, spreads, and fillings.
