Herbacel® AQ® AFB 200 – Functional apple fibre – Enhanced texturizer – Color

Apple fibers are often used as bulk fiber for enrichment. Herbafood has widened its range of high functional fruit fibers and designed a new generation of apple fibers with additional functional benefits. Compared to conventional dietary apple fibers, our Herbacel® AQ® AFB 200 offers high water binding capacity combined with excellent swelling property at cold and warm temperatures.

These properties of the new apple fiber offers benefits in diverse food applications such as meat products, meat alternatives and baked goods. The use of functional apple fiber is also advantageous to improve the free flowing behaviour in powdered products and to minimize the anti-caking effect in fruit pieces.

Besides its high water-binding capacity, Herbacel® AQ® AFB 200 provides a golden-brown hue in your food product. Especially in baked goods and meat alternatives, it is beneficial in order to support brown colorings. Also, in plant-based dairy products Herbacel ® AQ® AFB 200 is recommended to avoid greyish off-shades that can occur from alternative protein sources.
