Acacia Fiber, or Acacia gum, the most recognized natural gum worldwide, is also traditionally known as Gum Arabic.

Acacia is a dried exudate harvested from the stem and branches of Acacia Senegal or Acacia Seyal trees. It is produced by making incisions in the bark of trees. The exudate forms nodules which are harvested to be sorted out, cleaned and kibbled.

Acacia Gum has great technological and nutritional properties. It is an all natural and well tolerated dietary fiber* with strong prebiotic properties.

Nexira, the leading expert in acacia, provides a comprehensive range of acacia based ingredients with multiple properties for a board scope of applications. All-natural and GMO free, our acacia gums perfectly match the rising demand for clean labeling.

Beet Juice Powder

Organic

Native to the Mediterranean region, Beetroot (Beta vulgaris), also known as beetroot, table beet, garden beet, sugar beet and golden beet, is the taproot of a beet plant. However, it is nutritionally different: sugar beets are white and manufacturers tend to use them for extracting sugar and sweetening processed foods. On the opposite, it is not possible to extract sugar from beetroot, which is mostly red or gold.

Beetroot is a highly nutritious vegetable offering betalains. Beets are relatively low in calories yet high in fiber, vitamins, minerals and health-boosting phytonutrients. This superfood is the perfect ingredient for a large array of applications, notably for sports nutrition products.

Nexira’s organic beet juice powder is a natural carrier, for a clean label ingredient and provides a good source of many health-promoting compounds.

Cranberries have been used by North American populations since ancient times.

Berries are collected through two different methods: dry harvesting or wet harvesting.
When wet harvested, bogs are flooded with water. Each berry contains a small pocket of air which helps it to float. They are gathered and collected from the surface.

Cranberries are consumed in various forms: fresh, dried, juices, cereal bars, as well as powders and supplements. There are traditionally used for women health.

Lemon (Citrus limon), native to India and South Asia, is a small evergreen tree related to the orange, pomelo, tangerine and grapefruit. The ellipsoidal fruit has a green rind when unripe, which turns yellow when ripe, and the pulp is segmented and light yellow in color. Lemon juice is used in a wide variety of beverages and foods.

Famous for their sour taste as a result of their high citric acid content, lemons are also an excellent source of naturally occurring vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, and contain the plant compound, citrus limonin. Like other citrus fruits, lemons contain a variety of phytochemicals like the flavonoid glycosides hesperetin, naringin, and naringenin, as well as containing smaller amounts of flavonoids like ß-carotenes, ß-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and lutein. They are a good source of dietary fiber and contain a number of vitamins and minerals, including B-vitamins (niacin, folate, thiamin, riboflavin, folate, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine) as well as zinc, magnesium, copper, iron, calcium and potassium.*
