SWELITE™ C pea fibre has been used for several years in processed poultry products because of their high water holding capacity. For example, adding SWELITE™ C to a chicken nuggets recipe significantly reduces water losses during processing and cooking. Water is only released under a strong mechanical action, such as mastication. This phenomenon provides a juicy and fatty mouthfeel which considerably improves the texture. Therefore SWELITE™ C pea fibre is the best solution for processed poultry products, but also for many other products!
