Atlanta, Georgia, US (July 7, 2023) – CP Kelco, a global leader of nature-based ingredient solutions, is excited to launch NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber to the Australian market at the upcoming foodpro 2023 event in Melbourne on 23 – 26 July, 2023.
Upcycled from citrus peels, an abundant byproduct of the juice industry, NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber is a sustainably sourced ingredient that was developed to meet the need for simpler product development and shorter ingredient lists. It contributes to dietary fiber intake while supporting mouthfeel, viscosity and more across a variety of applications – from beverages, baked goods and condiments to plant-based dairy and meat alternatives. With shortages and rising prices impacting supplies, NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber supports the replacement or reduction of starch, egg, butter and xanthan gum in formulations. It also helps to extend tomato solids and fruit pulp in fruit applications for potential cost savings.
“We are thrilled to introduce NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber to Australian formulators,” said William Letsinger, Senior Director of Strategic Growth Initiatives. “Innovation, sustainability, efficiency and inflation are all top of mind this year. NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber can help by supporting the replacement and reduction of emulsifiers, butter, fruit solids and other ingredients for a shorter, clean label-friendly ingredient deck,” he added.

CP Kelco’s technical experts have crafted several tasty solutions to showcase how NUTRAVA® Citrus Fiber can replace or reduce eggs and oil, as well as add indulgence, texture and mouthfeel when working with plant proteins. Attendees are invited try the following prototypes:
