Peas are a good source of dietary fibre. Pea fibre consists of two main components, the inner structure (pea inner fibre) and seed coat (pea outer fibre). For food application only the pea inner fibre is used. There is a difference in fibre content and type between these components.

 

Pea inner fibres are used amongst others in food applications with following functionalities:

• high water binding capacity (WBC)

• oil absorption capacity

• increase of dietary fibre

• improvement of texture, form stability and mouthfeel

• process optimization e. g. during extrusion

• enhanced juiciness and tenderness

• longer shelf life and storing stability

• prevention of weight loss

• volume increase

 

Pea inner fibre can be used in a variety of different products due to its pale appearance and neutral/neutral-beany flavour. Following types of products that pea fibre can be used in:

• soups & sauces

• meat, poultry, fish & seafood

• bakery products

• pasta and noodles
