Clean Label, Multi-functional Citrus Fibers Improve Meat and Dairy Alternatives

Not all citrus fibers are created the same. Some citrus fibers are produced using a clean, physical process which result in high water holding and emulsification properties. This dual functional fiber stems from the unique composition containing intact pectin, insoluble fiber and protein. As a result, citrus fiber provides stability, improved texture and full body mouthfeel in dairy alternatives. And in meat substitutes, citrus fiber enhances juiciness, binding, and improves meat-like texture. Ultimately, this natural fiber can be labeled as citrus fiber, dried citrus pulp or citrus flour which clean up food label declarations. This session will provide an overview of citrus fibers and demonstrate a few case studies on how it benefits specific plant-based applications.

Comparing Viscosity Results

Often viscosity results are shared between departments within the same company, different companies, or material suppliers and end users, and at times the same material appear to have a different viscosity when compared to a previous measurement although no changes in the material are suspected. Our presentation will refer to measuring the dynamic viscosity using a rotational viscometer/rheometer and what are the main factors that could influence the measurement result. We will cover the Newtonian and non-Newtonian behaviours, how to identify them, what parameters are important when measuring viscosity, and how to effectively compare measurements taken by various parties, even if different equipment is used.
