Ingredient company BI Nutraceuticals has launched a new sweet potato powder designed for adding fiber to baby foods, beverages, and snacks.

“Sweet potatoes have long been recognized for their nutritional benefits,”​ according to the company​. “They contain a concentrated dose of important daily nutrients, including calcium, iron, vitamin A and protein. Applying its unique manufacturing capabilities, BI maintained the integrity of the vegetable’s nutrients while transforming it into a powder with versatile application.”

The new Sweet Potato Powder contains vitamins, minerals, protein, and up to 35% dietary fiber, designed to be versatile and meet ‘clean label’ expectations of consumers.

In addition, the company said that the new powder has four times the fiber available in conventional sweet potato powders. The flavor was described as mildly sweet, with notes of raisin, dried fruit, and honey.
