Dietary Fibers

More Dietary Fiber, Yes Peas!

Avena Best Pea Hull Fiber (TDF 90%) and Organic Oat Hull Fiber (TDF 87%) are ready-to-eat (RTE), natural dietary fibers that are specialty milled from minimally processed and upcycled from the hulls of sustainably grown non-GMO peas and oats.

Avena’s pea hull fiber is an ‘intrinsic and intact’ dietary fiber according to the FDA Nutrition and Supplement Facts Label Regulations. It is permitted for use in processed meat products by the USDA FSIS, and is ‘approved’ by Health Canada as a novel fiber for inclusion in ‘non-standardized’ foods (those for which the Canadian regulations do not provide specific compositional standards) as well as corresponding agencies in the UK and EU. These fibers have a naturally occurring balance of insoluble and soluble fibers.

These natural dietary fibers, neutral in flavor, color and aroma, have gained traction as clean label, consumer-friendly ingredients, produced in a facility that does not process any labeled allergens. Pea hull fiber and oat hull fiber provide a fiber boost with functionality in bakery, tortilla, snacks, crackers, beverages, meat and plant-based foods.
