In a competitive food and drink market, Scottish manufacturers need to think what they can do to beef up their product range. Fibre enriched foods maybe one way to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Why are high-fibre foods of interest to the Scottish food and drink sector? According to Food Standards Scotland, the average daily intake of fibre is 15.6 grams in Scotland, which is half the recommended amount. And research undertaken by Tate & Lyle, found 48% of UK consumers want to increase their daily fibre intake.
