Bioriginal has announced it will introduce its new thickening agent, XanFlax, at this years’ Institution of Food Technologists’ Annual Meeting & Food Expo (IFT19).

As the demand for clean-label, plant-based and “free-from” products continues to grow, food manufacturers need to find an easy solution. XanFlax is Bioriginal’s answer, providing an option that they say will allow formulators to meet consumer changing dietary needs and wants, without sacrificing flavour or quality.

XanFlax is a natural thickening agent that can be used as a non-GMO replacement for xanthan gum in a variety of food applications. As a gluten-free, clean label and vegan option, XanFlaxTM can be added to smoothies, used in baking and implemented in a number of other cooking applications.

Using water-soluble polysaccharides (hydrocolloids) derived only from flaxseed meal, XanFlax has a good nutritional profile and is an excellent source of omega-3 alpha-linoleic acid, phytochemicals and dietary fibre. With this content, it can be used to replace eggs, xanthan gum, guar gum, arabicgum, cornstarch, and flour.

Bioriginal delivers complete nutritional solutions to the Food and Nutraceutical industries. Acquired by US-based Omega Protein in 2014, Canadian Bioriginal has carved out a niche by scientifically combining nutritional ingredients from all over the world, directly from the source.

Bioriginal will be providing samples and discussing the benefits of this amazing new product at its booth at the IFT19 Food Expo.
