Wide Open Agriculture announces lupin fibre product is ready for commercialisation

After an extensive research and development program in collaboration with a European plant-based engineering provider, Wide Open Agriculture (WOA) has announced the commercial readiness of its lupin fibre product.

WOA, an Australian regenerative food and agriculture company, chief executive officer Matthew Skinner said, “This development marks a significant stride in the food industry, offering a sustainable, nutritionally superior, and versatile alternative to traditional fibres.

Lupin fibre is an alternative to traditional fibres in the dietary fibre market, according Grand View Research, the fibre market is projected to reach $24.7 billion by 2032.

“We believe our lupin fibre will not only meet but exceed consumer expectations, reshaping the way we think about food ingredients and their impact on health and the environment,” said Skinner.

WOA state their lupin fibre product has a unique composition which gives it properties of both insoluble and soluble fibre, with high water and oil binding capacities, contributing to improved viscosity, stability, and mouthfeel across a diverse range of products.

WOA has successfully developed a lupin fibre enriched bread as a proof of the concept.

The company expects the commercialisation to increase the revenue and margin potential of WOA’s production facility in Germany.
