CP Kelco has won the 2020 Ringier Technology Innovation Award for Creative Plant-Based Product (Food & Beverage Ingredients category), for its newest innovation, NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber. The award was officially presented at a ceremony held in conjunction with the Nutritious Food Functional Beverage Technology Summit in Guangzhou, China, on August 13.

“It’s an honor for our newest ingredient to be recognised in this prestigious awards program,” said Jérôme Béra, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing. “NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber delivers multifunctional benefits and helps meet consumers’ clean label expectations in a variety of food and beverage products, while also contributing to daily dietary fiber intake.”

A unique next-generation, nature-based ingredient, NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber is sourced from intact citrus peels, a byproduct of the juicing industry. CP Kelco’s patented process converts the peels into a citrus fiber that is both highly functional and close to nature.

As an innovative solution in the product developer’s clean label toolbox, NUTRAVA Citrus Fiber enables stabilisation, thickening, suspension, emulsion stability and water-binding capabilities, and also supports sugar/fat reduction efforts. It can help developers reduce the total number of ingredients on the product label and even replace starch or egg in recipes. Key applications include fruit-flavored drinks, dressings, condiments, soups, sauces, bakery and meat products.
