About

We, at Unibourne provide speciality ingredients procured from trustworthy sources around the world. We create value for our customers by ensuring that only the best quality ingredients with excellent logistics and supply chain support are delivered to them via broadest gamut of ingredients the industry can offer. That is why our motto stands for “Bringing the World of Food Ingredients to Your Doorstep”.

With our carefully sourced ingredients, we want to help the food industry transition their products to a more superior and healthy quality.
People all around the world rely heavily on commercial food systems for daily sustenance. To create profits and value for shareholders, commercial food systems rely largely on high volume sales of foods rich in harmful components. These industries fail to account for the significant costs of its operations to society, health, and the environment.
The food industry has often been denounced for its role in contributing to the increasing percentage of overweight and obese people. Therefore, food corporations become more essential in combating the rising burden of nutrition-related chronic illnesses. These corporations need to take concrete steps such as food reformulation, consumer information, responsible marketing and healthy lifestyle promotion. However, most food formulators choose to retain the organoleptic properties and profit margins while compromising on the health aspect.

Profits might be gained from a better and more sustainable food system that is consistent with health and sensorial acceptance of the product. Therefore, we introduce Plant fibers that are a 3-step solution which helps in increasing the yield, adding textural benefits and incorporating fiber to the product. It is a natural, odourless, neutral taste and flavour white powder. It is easy to incorporate into food and can provide an increase in yield due to the absorption of extra water. This excellent water and oil binding characteristics of our plant fibers make them exceptional texturizers that can stabilize fine emulsified systems in food processing. The water retention capacity up to 10 times and Oil retention capacity up to 8 times its own weight. Only a little amount of additional fibre is required to increase productivity as a result of quicker production processes and to save labour and energy expenses. On the other hand, fibre demand is increasing due to the popularity of processed meals and customer’s need for gluten-free, low-fat or non-fat foods with a creamy texture. Dietary fibre found in plant fibres assist to increase this trend by giving meals more water, air, and a pleasant mouthfeel. It is considered as insoluble dietary fiber with fiber content min 96% (dry mass). A possible label claim is source of fiber.
