Fiberstar, Inc., recently won Food Ingredients Europe’s 2019 Plant-based Innovation award. The recognition goes to “ companies who commercialize new solutions to improve the rapidly growing plant-based foods category,” according to Fiberstar’s press release.
They won the award for introducing new plant-based solutions for meat alternatives using their flagship Citri-Fi natural citrus fiber. As companies research ways to replace methyl cellulose to clean up their labels, many innovators are looking toward Citri-Fi natural citrus fiber to assist with texture issues when used in combination with other natural ingredients.
“Fiberstar continues to be on the forefront when creating new technologies for meat alternatives.” says John Haen, President and CEO. “We work closely with our customers to share solutions that fit their needs. This fast-paced category needs innovative companies like Fiberstar to introduce new ingredient technologies into the marketplace,” says Mr. Haen. “Our developments in meat alternatives complements our successes in plant-based milk and other non-dairy foods.”
