ATLANTA, April 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CP Kelco, a global leader of nature-based ingredient solutions, today announced plans for the introduction of its newest product line, NUTRAVA™ Citrus Fiber.  With the continued growth in consumer demand for clean label products, NUTRAVA™ Citrus Fiber addresses the need for nature-based, recognizable ingredients in a variety of food applications. Derived from intact citrus peels, this next-generation citrus fiber is not only functional, but also close to nature.

“At CP Kelco we work diligently to create new products that expand food manufacturers’ options to innovate and meet consumer demands. With clean label foods and beverages becoming the new norm, consumers are seeking innovative products from our customers to address these needs,” said Didier Viala, President at CP Kelco.  “We are happy to support this shift by adding this exciting, nature-based ingredient to our sustainably sourced and produced portfolio.  We look forward to meeting with formulators and exploring a range of applications for our NUTRAVA™ Citrus Fiber.”

In recent years, functional fibers have risen in popularity as researchers uncover health benefits and manufacturers seek to enrich their products with these well-known ingredients. Key applications include fruit-flavored drinks, drinking yogurts, dressings, condiments, sauces, bakery, meats and soups. NUTRAVA™ Citrus Fiber offers gelling, thickening, stabilizing and water-binding capabilities, and may be used to replace starch, eggs or oil in many recipes.

Food manufacturers will get a first official look at NUTRAVA™ Citrus Fiber at CP Kelco’s table during the 2019 Association for Dressings & Sauces (ADS) Technical Meeting in Louisville, Ky., April 28 – 30.
