CENTENNIAL, COLO. — Penford Food Ingredients has introduced PenFibe RS, a potato-based resistant starch that is about 85% dietary fiber on a dry solids basis. It has a bland flavor and color, according to Centennial-based Penford Food Ingredients, and thus it is suitable for a range of applications, including baked foods, gluten-free products, breakfast cereal, nutrition bars, vegetable sauces, pasta, yogurt and pet foods.

PenFibe RS has a low water-holding capacity that allows for increased solids/bulk without affecting food quality. It contributes minimal viscosity to food systems.

“PenFibe RS is a unique ingredient that delivers both health and functional benefits, in addition to being non-allergenic and maintaining a neutral taste and smooth texture,” said John Randall, president of Penford Food Ingredients.
