Dietary Fibers

More Fiber, Peas!

Avena Best Pea Hull Fibers (TDF 90%) are ready-to-eat (RTE), natural dietary fibers that provide structure and binding in clean label, allergy-friendly bakery, snack, meat and plant-based foods and beverages.

Available in two particle sizes – 125 and 200 – these fibers have a naturally occurring balance of insoluble and soluble fiber. They are minimally processed from the hulls of sustainably grown, naturally gluten-free, non-GMO peas.

These ingredients are classified as intrinsic and intact by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration), listed as an ingredient for use in processed meat products by the USDA FSIS, and are approved as a novel fiber by Health Canada.

As well as providing a fiber boost, Avena Best Pea Hull Fibers are neutral in flavor, color and aroma and traceable right back to the farm.
