As the world leader of acacia for decades and as a consistent supplier of locust bean gum, Nexira continues to write the story of these two ingredients and will showcase them at its IFT First 2024 Booth #3251, July 14-17 in Chicago. Sustainable sourcing, gentle manufacturing process, food science and demonstration of health benefits: these are the strengths of Nexira ingredients.

Come and (re)discover Nexira’s deep commitment to sourcing, all the technological properties of acacia gum and locust bean gum, the nutritional benefits of prebiotic acacia fiber as well as its latest launch: a new combination of acacia and carob fibers. Nexira will also launch a new reference in POW(D)ER, its range of nutrient-dense superfoods.

Clean, Natural Nutrition
inavea™, the extended range of prebiotic acacia fiber, organic and carbon neutral, is a key player in nutrition space. It offers a clean and natural solution for improving the nutritional profile of food and beverage products and supplements through fiber enrichment. inavea™ offers the value of high digestive tolerance for fiber enrichment and prebiotic effect in a broad scope of applications, from fortified beverages to functional bars or nutritional powders.

Nexira will present inavea™ CAROB & ACACIA, a complementary combination of carob and acacia fibers. While carob is widely used as a natural texturizer, it is an innovative way to promote it as a prebiotic fiber. To empower a healthier microbiome, this new reference boosts the microbiota diversity, ie the number of different species of bacteria in the gut microbiome. inavea™ CAROB & ACACIA has demonstrated a microbiota modulation with the promotion of beneficial bacteria and short chain fatty acids. Thanks to the different structure of acacia and carob fibers, inavea™ CAROB & ACACIA offers a full spectrum fermentation, acting across the entire intestine.

Plant-Based Products
Launched at the latest IFT, Nexira's naltive™ range includes flagship ingredients such as locust bean gum, tara gum, and guar specialties. These hydrocolloids, gently processed, play a pivotal role in creating and adjusting the texture of various food products, including plant-based alternatives. They are used both independently and in combinations to achieve the best results, contributing to the sensory experience in appearance and taste.

Nutrition Boost!
Finally, Nexira will launch another reference in POW(D)ER, its range of nutrient-dense superfoods: the Shiny Superfruit Mix, organic-certified. This is a blend of blackcurrant, lemon, pineapple and beet juices and it provides antioxidant protection for the body. It’s perfect to formulate within a sports nutrition powder for performance and hydration.
