Fiberstar, Inc. is a privately owned biotechnology company that manufactures & sells Citri-Fi®, a natural citrus fibre created by a clean, patented process. Citri-Fi is unique in that the insoluble/soluble fibre and protein stay intact to provide high water holding and natural emulsification properties. Citri-Fi is non-GMO and non-allergenic and has no E-number. Fiberstar sells products globally in over 65 countries.
Citri-Fi is used in meat and poultry applications such as injected & marinated, ground and formed and emulsified meats for yield improvement, purge reduction and/or texturizing. Because Citri-Fi is synergistic with other hydrocolloids such as rice starch and/or carrageenan, this natural ingredient can be used to replace or reduce phosphates and assist in sodium reduction in phosphate-free brine systems. This natural citrus fibre improves nutritional profiles by improving texture in fat reduced meat products and may provide cost savings due to yield enhancements.
