Fats are essential for a diet. But how much fat is good for human health? The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends a fat intake of 20-35 energy percent (E%) for adults. Fat intake in many Western countries, however, exceeds these recommendations. Since it is difficult for people to implement the diet recommendations in their daily life, using fat replacers in food processing for fat reduction is gaining in importance.
Humectants such as our powdered cellulose JELUCEL® are used in the food industry to optimise and stabilise product properties. Intermediate moisture foods remain fresh for longer and are preserved.
“There was a strong interest in JELU products at this year’s Food Ingredients Europe”, Jens Schienke and Markus Hesse from JELU-WERK summarised the exhibition. JELU-WERK presented its natural plant fibres – wheat fibres, oat fibres and bamboo fibres – to the fair public. The visitors, however, were above all interested in cellulose as dietary fibre.
From 28 until 30 November, JELU-WERK will be showcasing its products at Food Ingredients Europe (FIE). You can find out more about our functional plant fibres at stand Q77 in hall 8.0. We look forward to your visit at our stand in Frankfurt, Germany!
JELU-WERK successfully demonstrated the quality of its plant fibres and celluloses at Seoul Food 2017.

The new definition of dietary fibre by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is not relevant for American food manufacturers alone. Manufacturers who export their food products to the USA must in future also comply with the new labelling requirements.
