What is caromax fiber?

caromax fiber is a dietary fiber produced from the pulp of the carob fruit. Its mild and patented manufacturing procedure preserves the high quality of its nutritionally essential components. The result is a product with a total dietary fiber content of more than 80 %.
caromax fiber’s unique composition is characterised by its high content of dietary fiber (especially lignin), polyphenols and pinitol, which is the general basis for a variety of health perspectives.

Natural Occurrence

The carob tree is a native to the Mediterranean region. It is a species of flowering evergreen shrub or tree in the pea family, Fabaceae. Its pods have been used for ages, and it has a content of d-pinitol. d-pinitol is converted to d-chiro-Inositol (DCI) in our body.

Physiological Activity

Antioxidative Perspectives

Antioxidants play an essential role in protecting the human body against oxidative processes. Most insoluble dietary fibers show little antioxidative activity — or none at all. Initial in vitro studies have demonstrated that caromax fiber works as an efficient scavenger against free radicals and other reactive substances.

Digestive Perspectives

caromax possesses a high content of insoluble dietary fiber and is especially rich in lignin. Its physiological properties (water-holding capacity and resistance to human digestive enzymes) contribute to an improved intestinal motility and bowel function

Lowering cholesterol

caromax fiber has a high content of insoluble fiber, tannins and polyphenols help the absorption of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. It is a recommended product when we require a low sugar diet. caromax fiber may be effective in the prevention and treatment of hypercholesterolemia

Euronutra´s Role
Euronutra is prepared to assist its customers in obtaining the necessary authorisations for their products.

       

High-quality, healthy solutions demand sustainability                                                                                                                                                                                            

Sustainable ingredients are the only way that works for Euronutra. For that, our company works in a long-term basis with local agents and research centres are always seeking for the best raw materials improving the impact in the harvesting, manufacturing trying to improve the lives of all the actors involved in the circle of the product till the final consumers. Carob is harvested in Spain that grows on non-irrigated trees without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. Looking for the best varieties, lands and people has taken dozens of years, but it gives us a sustainable raw material, supplier and better planet for the next generations. Using water-soluble technologies and next-generation gentle technologies minimizes the impact that industrial activities currently has.
