  • Patent number: 8354134
    Abstract: The present invention is a high fiber blend which includes a stiffening agent and a plasiticizing agent. The blend replaces part of the flour in a dough without substantially affecting the dough's rheological properties. High fiber food products can then be made from the dough, using conventional commercial manufacturing equipment and processes. The blend can be used to produce food products that meet FDA requirements for fiber-related health claims. The present invention is also a method of making the high fiber blend. This method involves measuring a rheological property of the stiffening agent and the plasticizing agent. The stiffening agent and plasticizing agent are then combined, in amounts that will allow the resulting blend to provide a high level of fiber to a food product without substantially affecting the rheological properties of the dough.
