SWELITE™, a functional solution for different challenges

The SWELITE™ range consists of two pea fibre references, which are distinguished by different physical and functional characteristics. Enough to cover a wide field of application with very specific requests: texture improvement, cohesion contribution or compatibility for brines of injections. With new emerging consumer trends, many opportunities are opening up for pea fibre.


Because of its thicker grain size and higher water retention, the SWELITE™ C pea fiber reference is positioned in restructured products, or containing larger components.

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!
