Dietary Fibers, Cleaner Formulations & the New Nutrition Facts Label

Speaker: David Plank, Ph.D., Managing Principal, WRSS Food & Nutrition Insights / Senior Fellow Researcher,  University of Minnesota

With changes to the Nutrition Facts panel, the dietary fiber category has been impacted more than most. Additionally, their nutritional benefits have generated increased interest among consumers and their clean label functional properties have increased interest among formulators. Dietary fibers have become trendy ingredients to watch. This presentation will provide insights into an expected FDA update on what components constitute a dietary fiber and discuss some of their properties and applications. It will also touch on “whole food components” used for their dietary fiber content and ability to positively alter the texture of finished products.

Consumers want to understand and be comfortable with the ingredients used in the formulated products they purchase. This has led to increased interest in whole food ingredients. This presentation will review approaches and alternatives for the reformulation of tradional processed foods into clean label products. A key focus will be on using whole foods or naturally derived solutions while considering processing implications. The concepts presented can be translated for use across a range of applications, speeding reformulation and new product development efforts.
