Acacia adoption fits within Nexira’s mission
As the world leader in Aacacia, Nexira is passionate about this fabulous ingredient and is the recognised expert.
Always working and investing to valorise acacia, Nexira is on all fronts, such as sustainable development, industry, quality, regulatory, marketing and science.
Since the early 1970’s, Nexira has been involved in sustainable development and has taken special care to develop and to preserve the origins of the natural raw materials we are sourcing. Nexira is particularly involved in sustainable development of acacia forests for future supply. Since 2021, Nexira also offers an organic low carbon acacia to reduce carbon footprint under the brand inavea.
Recently, Nexira was the game changer in FDA approval by conducting an enthusiastic campaign for five years and confirming acacia as a dietary fibre in the USA in December 2021.
This FDA decision has opened new market opportunities for acacia in the overall health and nutrition markets.
In 2022, Nexira has invested more than $10 million in a new production capacity for its main industrial site – the world’s largest acacia processing unit with 35,000 tons.
Very early in its history, Nexira began to focus its scientific research on the nutritional benefits of acacia as a native source of soluble dietary fibre. Numerous studies have been performed since the late 1970’s and thanks to Nexira’s support, the acacia prebiotic effect has been largely demonstrated.
Nexira is continuously working to raise awareness around acacia fibre prebiotic health benefits, being for example an active member of the Global Prebiotic Association to highlight the prebiotic effect of acacia. Adopting acacia is another way to share scientific studies with our community, to offer a compilation of published studies and to bring on the table our numerous own studies.
Manufacturers, and even consumers, are more and more aware of the importance of the microbiome and they are requesting more natural and organic solutions. There’s also a huge fibre gap to fill in with more than 90% of American who do not meet recommended intakes for dietary fibre. Thus, offering a new ingredient for fibre enrichment, providing benefits on the gut and on microbiota is really appealing. Acacia is a plant-based, organic, clean label and holistic ingredient, characteristics making this fibre even more appealing for customers and consumers.
