As a long term supplier of several different fibers, Solvaira Specialties is continuing to build the full range of fiber products for the food, health and specialty markets. With the addition of FI-1 Oat Fibre™, customers now have the ability to source all their fiber needs from Solvaira.

Solvaira’s FI-1 Oat Fibre™ production and supply leverages the company’s experience, technical and operational capabilities in Cumberland, Md. That facility has long produced superior performing dietary fibers to meet the growing food, nutrition, and specialty market demands.

“Successful supply of Oat Fiber will complement the strategic supply of Soy, Cellulose and other fibers for the markets we currently serve,” says Jit Ang, Solvaira executive vice president. “Oat is positively linked to healthy living and our addition of this new line of Oat Fibers demonstrates Solvaira’s commitment to the needs of the food industry.”

“Solvaira’s diverse new line of Oat Fibers has excellent functionality in a variety of food systems including meat and bakery applications,” adds Keith Petrofsky, Solvaira’s vice president of technology. “We are excited to offer these excellent clean label ingredient options to our customers.”
