SWELITE™:
pea fibre

Our pea fibre, composed of fibres and starch, is guaranteed to be free of genetically modified organisms and allergen free.
Pea fibre is separated from the yellow pea by grinding and then it is sieved.

This fibre fraction is composed of cellulose (±15%), pectin (±40%), and hemicellulose (±45%).

In fact, the high pectin and hemicellulose content leads to a great water retention capacity and significant oil retention: 10g of water per 1g of SweliteTM and ±2.9g of oil per 1g of SweliteTM.

SWELITE™ pea fibre also contains natural starch (+/- 44%) of which a part (+/- 15%) of the starch is resistant starch. This resistant starch is an ideal substrate for lactobacilli in the intestines in monogastrics.
