Sugar reduction solution (Fibrean Sugar Reduction)

The imminent implementation of the NutriScore in the front labelling of food and the growing demand for healthy products are marking the decisions of the Food Industry.

The NutriScore system gives packaged foods a ranking that is calculated using an algorithm with the date from the nutritional analysis. Thus, the excesses of sugars, fats and sodium value negatively, while the increases in fibre and protein score positively.

Fibrean Sugar Reduction is an ideal solution for food industries to reach their targets by reducing sugars and increasing fibre with a single ingredient.

Sodium Reduction Solution (Na-Reduktean)

Our Na-Reduktean salts offer a very efficient sodium reduction solution. We have a Clean Label typology (-40% sodium reduction) and a Blended typology (up to 100% sodium replacement).

Both are very easy to use: 1:1 substitution of common salt in recipes or formulas.

Multifunctional Vegetable Fibres (Fibrean)

Nature offers a wide variety of fibres found in fruits, vegetables, cereals, pulses and other plants. Some of these fibres have complex structures that confer excellent technological properties for the food industry. Among others the ability to gel, thicken, emulsify, sweeten, texturize or retain liquids.

Barcelonesa Human Nutrition’s technical team locates, studies and combines fibres from all over the world in order to optimize their functional properties. From this effort in R&D&I, Fibrean has emerged as a natural solution to reduce sugars and fats, as an alternative to certain allergens or to replace E-coded additives.

Our range includes texturizing fibres such as citrus fibre, psyllium fibre or pea fibre as well as various types of inulins and oligosaccharides.

Highly Functional Meat and Plant Proteins (Protean)

Proteins are essential nutrients for any organism. But they are also excellent functional ingredients at the service of the food industry.

Our Protean range includes highly functional meat and vegetable proteins specially selected to improve food texture and increase productivity.

Natural Hydrocolloids for all Textures (Carratext)

Carrageenans and alginates are complex hydrocolloids that require extensive knowledge of their properties and how to apply them to each type of food. At Barcelonesa Human Nutrition we have accumulated extensive technical and commercial experience in the use of these natural texturizers, which allows us to offer each customer a solution. Furthermore, our capacity to purchase and stock raw materials allows us to guarantee the security and speed of supply, as well as maintaining constant competitiveness.
