CFF introduces new and innovative fibre SANACEL betaG

November 10
13:44 2011

Supported by nutrition scientists CFF is recommending an increase of daily dietary fibre intake and introduces a new healthy fibre SANACEL betaG with two health claims. This product, based on barley, is rich in beta-glucan, a polysaccharide with additional health benefits. It is therefore highly applicable for the dietary fibre enrichment of food products. Due to its typical beige colour, odour and taste SANACEL betaG is especially suitable for bakery goods, cerials and extruded products.The consumption of beta-glucan on a regular basis may reduce the risk for obesity, diabetes, obstipation, arteriosclerosis and heart diseases.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) had well-reviewed health claims for beta-glucan:
“Regular consumption of ß-glucans contributes to maintenance of healthy blood cholesterol concentrations”. In order to bear the claim, food containing beta-glucan should provide at least 3g of beta-glucan per day in 1 to 4 servings. Furthermore beta-glucan acts as prebiotic and anti-carcinogen. “Consumption of ß-glucans contributes to the reduction of the glucose rise after a meal.” In order to obtain the claimed effect, 4 g of beta-glucans from barley for each 30 g of available carbohydrates should be consumed per meal.
“Passionate about fibres”
Dietary Fibres are well-established and worldwide recognized food compounds with health benefits. The German CFF GmbH & Co KG., based in Gehren, produces a wide range of functional fibres for food applications. For more than 30 years CFF is dedicated to their development, production and merchandize.
Scientific studies have shown that an undersupply with dietary fibres has negative effects on human health and causes different diseases, such as overweight. High fibre foods usually have a lower energy density and take longer to be eaten and therefore support the feeling of repletion as of the increased food volumes. Dietary fibres may also protect from diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, blood pressure, stroke and possibly even colorectal cancer.
In order to contribute the increasing health consciousness of the consumers and to decrease the risks of the mentioned diseases, CFF dietary fibres are applied in different fields of food production, depending on the purpose of these foods. The following overview briefly informs about the product portfolio of CFF GmbH & Co. KG by giving examples of different applications:

Cellulosic Fibres
SANACEL (powdered cellulose)
SANACELwheat (wheat fibre)
SANACELoat (oat fibre)
SANACELbamboo (bamboo fibre)
These insoluble and multifunctional products serve as dietary fibre enrichment for foods. Besides that, the fibres offer many technological benefits, such as high water and oil binding capacity, better texture, freeze and thaw stabilising or reduced baking losses and are therefore profit-making. Fibres can be provided in different lengths for various applications.
Fibres with soluble components
SANACELAF 401 (apple fibre)
SANACELpot (potato fibre)
SANACELbetaG (barley fibre)
SANACELadd FA and SANACEL add FB (fibre blends)
Their technical advantage is a higher water binding capacity. Soluble fibres are retaining water for a long time and are increasing the viscosity of the product as of their gelforming character. That results in a longer fresh keeping, in reduced baking losses or in protection against syneresis.
Soluble fibres act as prebiotics. Fermented by the gut bacteria producing short chain fatty acids, fibres are functioning as energy for the gut bacteria.
Due to their neutral odour and taste, and their colour range of white to beige, dietary fibres can be used for different food applications:

  • bakery goods
  • extruded products
  • meat- and sausage products
  • pasta
  • fillings
  • powdered products
  • drinks

Whether powdered cellulose, bamboo, wheat, oat, apple, potato and barley fibres or fibre blends with enormous water retention, well-educated food-technologists at CFF provide any solution our customers may desire.
