R&D IN BY-PRODUCTS FROM FOOD AGROINDUSTRY
The diet prevailing in industrialised countries is characterised by an excess of energy-dense
foods rich in fats and sugar, but with a deficiency of complex carbohydrates which constitute the
major portion of dietary fiber. Epidemiological research has demonstrated a relationship
between this type of diet and the emergence of a range of chronic diseases, including colon
cancer, obesity, cardiovascular diseases and several others disorders and, thus, an increase in
the level of dietary fiber in the daily diet has been recommended. For these reasons it is
interesting to increase the consumption of all foods that can supply fiber to daily foods intake.
Fiber incorporation in frequent consumed foods (meat, dairy and bakery products) could help to
overcome the fiber deficit.
Modern consumers are increasingly interested in their personal health, and expect the foods
they eat to be -beyond tasty and attractive-also safe and healthy. As interest in the link between
diet and health gathers place, many consumers seek ways to feel well and stay healthy by
eating nutritionally designed foods. One of the food ingredients greatly used when developing
nutritionally designed foods that promote health is the dietary fiber.
