Solka Floc® and JustFiber® can act as a pseudo-emulsifier in cake and muffin batter systems. This can improve the aeration process, resulting in better air cell retention. Depending on the formulation and processing conditions, these can increase the volumes in baked goods between 5-20% while improving moisture retention and extending shelf life.

As a structural component, Solka-Floc® and JustFiber® can form an extensive fibrous network within and on the surface of food products. These physical networks can provide structural integrity before, during and after processing. Therefore, dimensional shrinkage can be minimized resulting in improved product integrity.

Fiber Enrichment

IFC brand powdered cellulose and vegetable fibers are 99% total dietary fiber – making it a healthy ingredient choice. It can replace other higher caloric ingredients such as flour without compromising taste, texture and volume. As an insoluble bulking agent, foods made with IFC brand powdered cellulose and vegetable fiber can benefit from specific labeling advantages. A product enriched with fiber leads to a healthier lifestyle and a more attractive label.
