SAIBER – Kn in food processing
Supports Emulsification. It is anticaking, enhances yield due to water retention. Behaves neutrally with other ingredients. Fiber is stable to heating process, helps in uniform baking processes, uniform cooling process. Water inside the fibers prevents absorption of fat during frying. It prevents crystal formation during freezing since water is absorbed in micro fiber tubes.
