Did you know that 63% of people think they get enough fiber in their diet? The fact is around only 23% actually get enough. FiberGourmet is striving to bring more fibers into our foods. Using FiberFlour Technology, FiberGourmet is creating delicious foods.
How they do it:
Our patent-pending technology (patents pending in over 20 countries worldwide), lets us create truly “light” foods, with 40% fewer calories than the standard version. We do this by adding unprecedented amounts of fiber to our products. Since fiber has no calories, as the fiber goes up, the calories go down.
Most "reduced calorie" foods are really just "reduced fat" foods, which replace the fat with sugar, flour, or other full-calorie ingredients, so that the actual caloric reduction is small, if any. But our technology replaces ingredients like flour with 0-calorie fiber, resulting in significant caloric reductions - a whopping 40%!
I like the assortment of products that FiberGourmet offers. They have different types of pasta, Mac and Cheese and Lite Crackers. Courtesy of FiberGourmet I received samples to try for this review. I really enjoyed the Lite Nacho Snacks crackers. They are very cheesy with a nice nacho spice to the flavor. I enjoyed the crunch of the crackers as they are very satisfying. Each snack package contains only 80 calories but has a whopping 12g of fiber. With crackers that taste this good you really don't think about the fiber, but your body will thank you for it. I also tried the Light Penne Pasta. One serving of the FiberGourmet Light Pasta provides 72% of your daily fiber requirements. 18g of fiber per serving. How does it taste? It looks and taste like regualr pasta. You would never know the difference. I found the pasta very enjoyable and I am a pasta craver. FiberGourmet even has recipes in the website to help you make delicious meals. For something really yummy is the Mac-mmm-Cheese. My hubby loves macaroni and cheese. He tasted the FiberGourmet Mac-mmm-cheese and gave a big smile. He went back for seconds. It is creamy and cheesy. It also contains 18g of Fiber per serving. Great taste and needed fiber with 35% less calories. Good stuff.
You can find FiberGourmet in limited stores nationwide or you can order directly in case packs from FiberGourmet. I like the Build your own box assortment. It comes in 3 sizes and you choose the products to go in your box with the prices according to the items chosen.
FiberGourmet - a tasty way to get your needed daily fiber. Definitely One 2 Try.
Many thanks to Ari of FiberGourmet for providing the review samples.
