Nearly a quarter of the European population is overweight, and the proportion of diabetics is close to 10%. These diseases can be greatly attributed to an inappropriate, low-fiber diet and a sedentary lifestyle. We can help the functioning of our gut microbiome by eating the right amount of dietary fibers. Unfortunately, we often consume only half of the recommended daily amount of fibers, which should be 35-40 grams for adults.
About 10 billion liters of vegetable and fruit juice are produced in Europe every year. Pressed fibers left over during production are most often considered as useless by-products and, as such, are usually discarded. We had the idea that we could prepare a valuable product out of the fibers considered useless, which are in fact the healthiest ingredients of fruits and vegetables. In our laboratory, applying a special and environmentally friendly technology, we manufacture out of these fibers healthy and additive-free snacks.
