German natural dietary fibre specialist Taiyo has joined forces with Asiros to develop and market two new high-in-fibre fruit powder ranges under the BerryShield brand.
The new premium blends combine the benefits of Taiyo’s water-soluble prebiotic Sunfiber with the natural effects of individual fruits in different quality grades.
BerryShield Premium Conventional and BerryShield Organic can be used for multiple applications in the nutraceuticals sector and the food and beverage industry for customers in the EMEA region.
“We are very excited about our cooperation with Taiyo and the creation of innovative prebiotic juice powders made with Sunfiber,” said Carsten Aalundm, COO and commercial director of Asiros Nordic.
The first products in the lines will be launched this summer and will come from the berry varieties tartcherry, elderberry and lingonberry. BerryShield Premium Conventional and BerryShield Organic powders can be consumed pure or processed in applications.
Taiyo’s 100% natural, ISO-certified dietary fibre Sunfiber is non-viscous and derived from partially hydrolysed guar gum – which is clinically proven to be compatible with a low FODMAP diet, and effective in lowering the glycemic index and supporting digestion.
With their new range, the companies aim to meet demand for food and beverage formulations that offer health and wellness benefits, while containing natural ingredients.
“Taiyo and Asiros are pursuing similar goals by bringing products to market that are technologically convincing, and can offer added health value. In the collaboration, we combine our comprehensive know-how in natural plant-based premium ingredients,” said Stefan Siebrecht, managing director of Taiyo.
Denmark-based Asiros is a producer of organic products from natural raw fruits and plant-based ingredients.
