The Alland & Robert teams will be presenting the acacia fibre range at Hi Europe on stand F34 in hall 3

Alland & Robert, the international gum acacia expert, will presents its full acacia fibre range at Hi Europe (Frankfurt, Germany, 29 November–1 December).

To meet all public and industry expectations Alland & Robert’s variety of acacia fibres includes organic references: Seyal grade, Acacia Fiber 339 Organic, and Senegal grade, Acacia Fiber 399 Organic.

These references have been specifically developed to serve the growing demand for organic products in mature markets such as Europe and North America. To ensure full traceability of the gum, Alland & Robert is not only organic certified for its manufacturing process, but is only working with African suppliers who deliver organic raw materials certified by local accredited organisations.

As a natural, allergen- and GMO-free food additive, gum acacia offers a high safety level to the food and beverage industry. Alland & Robert also guarantees a minimum fibre content of 90% for all products of the acacia fibre range that can be added to any product formulation to increase the percentage of fibre.

Acacia fibre is odorless, tasteless and colourless and is highly soluble in water. It does not present the usual disadvantages associated with other common fibres used in the food industry, which include discomfort, side-effects, unnatural synthetic additive and viscosity addition to the end product.

Resistant to acidity and heat, it can undergo highly complex preparation methods and its pH is compatible with milk proteins. It can be added to any product formulation to increase the percentage of fibre in bakery products, dairy products, beverages, nutritional products and meat. By presenting a low calorific value, acacia fibres are also ideal for use in dietary and other health products.

To respond to the needs of all clients, Alland & Robert’s acacia fibre range is also certified Halal and Kosher and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

'While consumer interest for dietary food and nutrition is increasing worldwide, the food and beverage industry faces a new challenge and needs to adapt by offering healthier and safe products to their customers. As such, acacia fibres are a real asset for these companies and, as an International expert of gum acacia, Alland & Robert accompanies them all along the process,' comments Frédéric Alland, CEO of Alland & Robert.

'From formulation to manufacturing, our research and development team is dedicated to partner with our client and help them, thanks to their in depth expertise, develop the best product both in terms of taste and safety,' he added.

Harvested in the African Sahel, acacia fibre is an extremely safe food additive. Alland & Robert is committed to the naturalness of the product and makes the most of its advantageous qualities whilst carrying out strict controls with suppliers throughout the production process and ensuring good working conditions for harvesters. This same level of control is also applied at the company factories. Acacia fibres remain additive-free from harvest to sale.
