New functional ingredient Fibrim 1270 is targeted at bakers looking to make their products healthier and more cheaply.

Solae has launched the soya ingredient a complex blend of insoluble fibre, soluble fibre and protein for a variety of baked goods. The company said that emerging research suggested soya fibre can help support digestive health, heart health, and a lower glycaemic index for foods. Fibrim is also processed for no flavour impact, good water absorption and consistent functionality.

Solae Europe MD Reinhart Schmitt said: "Adding this ingredient to your product can lead to significant overall formulation cost savings, while improving the nutritional profile and fibre content of the final product."
