These references have been specifically developed to serve the growing demand for organic products in mature markets such as Europe and North America. To ensure full traceability of the gum, Alland & Robert is not only organic certified for its manufacturing process, but is only working with African suppliers who deliver organic raw materials certified by local accredited organizations.
As a natural, allergen and GMO free food additive, Gum Acacia offers a high safety level to the food and beverage industry. Alland & Robert also guarantees a minimum fiber content of 90% for all products of the Acacia Fiber range that can be added to any product formulation to increase the percentage of fiber.
Acacia Fiber is odorless, tasteless and colorless and is highly soluble in water. It does not present usual disadvantages of other common fibers used in the food industry which include discomfort, side effects, unnatural synthetic additive and viscosity addition to the end product. Resistant to acidity and heat, it can undergo highly complex preparation methods and its PH is compatible with milk proteins.
It can be added to any product formulation to increase the percentage of fiber including in bakery products, dairy products, beverages, nutritional products and meat. By presenting a low calorific value, Acacia Fibers are also ideal for use in dietary and other health products.
To respond to the needs of all clients, Alland & Robert’s Acacia Fiber range is also certified halal and kosher and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
“While consumers’ interest for dietary food and nutrition is increasing worldwide, the food and beverage industry faces a new challenge and needs to adapt by offering healthier and safe products to their customers,” says Frédéric Alland, CEO of Alland & Robert. “As such, Acacia Fibers are a real asset for these companies and, as an International expert of Gum Acacia, Alland & Robert accompanies them all along the process. From formulation to manufacturing, our research and development team is dedicated to partner with our client and help them, thanks to their in depth expertise, develop the best product both in terms of taste and safety.”
Harvested in the African Sahel, acacia fiber is an extremely safe food additive that comes from an exudation from Acacia. Alland & Robert is committed to the naturalness of the product and makes the most of its advantageous qualities while applying strict controls with suppliers throughout the production process and ensuring good working conditions for harvesters. This same level of control is also applied at the company factories. Acacia fibers remain additive-free from harvest to sale.
The Alland & Robert teams will be presenting the Acacia Fibers range and its various advantages at the HI Europe trade show in Frankfurt - Hall 3, stand F34.
