GPC unveils Fybrin: High-fiber resistant starch with vast reformulation capabilities.
Grain Processing Corporation (GPC) has introduced Fybrin, a corn-based resistant starch, low on calories, that can be used in formulations to achieve high fiber claims. Fybrin can be applied in pasta, tortillas, pizzas and even beverages.
The company unveiled its product in the US, with plans to launch internationally in the near future.
“Our company is very focused on fiber and growing into that area, just with the many health benefits of fiber, anything from gut health to calorie reduction. Fiber covers many of those health points,” states Kelly Belknap, business development manager.
“There’s just an overall increased recognition between the role that fiber plays in overall health, from anything from satiety to weight management, to immunity. With COVID-19 we’ve all been researching how to boost our immune systems.”
GPC’s Fybrin has 85% to 90% fiber and 54 calories per 100 g. In comparison, according to GPC, a typical starch would be around 400 calories.
Nine out of ten women and 97% of men do not meet the recommended intake of dietary fiber, according to the business. A similar finding than the one of Tate & Lyle that flagged that only 9% of UK adults met the daily recommended fiber intake.
