What’s So Special About the VitaFiber™ Test Kitchen?

As a functional ingredient, VitaFiber™ IMO (isomaltooligosaccharide) is still fairly new to many people.

And when it comes to cooking delicious meals and desserts with an innovative sugar alternative that has unique properties, many of us are not comfortable experimenting. Food is too expensive and precious to waste, and no host wants to be running to the grocery store or bakery to come up with a last-minute replacement for a meal gone awry. VitaFiber™ IMO is less sweet than sugar or syrups—around 60% as sweet—and it can take some experimenting to perfect using it as a substitute in recipes.

That’s why we created the VitaFiber™ Test Kitchen.

Whenever you see the “VitaFiber™ Test Kitchen Approved” seal on our website, you are assured the recipe has been developed, cooked, tasted and finessed to perfection in our very own laboratory-kitchen. For delicious results, every time.

Our chefs and food scientists are constantly working on developing new ways to cook and bake with VitaFiber™ IMO, to create healthy low-sugar, high fiber, prebiotic-enriched meal solutions you’ll be very proud to serve.

What’s more, VitaFiber™ has entered into a unique partnership with the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) where its renowned Department of Culinary Arts and Professional Food Studies has for a time become a supercharged extension of the VitaFiber Test Kitchen. The Nait teams, alongside some of the world’s best chefs through its groundbreaking Chefs-in-Residence program, are hard at work developing a long roster of lab-proven recipes from mouth-watering baklava to exciting innovations like the Pizza Protein Barteriyaki saucebeet chocolate cake … even licorice candy!

We’ve also got:
salad dressing
whipped cream
barbecue sauce
chicken skewers with peanut sauce (VitaFiber™ IMO goodness in both parts!)

… and other treats sure to inspire anyone from culinary neophytes to seasoned foodies. Take a spin around our updated Recipes section, and be sure to share it with your friends.

Then get cooking, and find out why our VitaFiber™ Test Kitchen Approved recipes are so popular. You’ll want to add them all to your repertoire of healthily delicious meal and dessert favourites.

Just be prepared for a lot of compliments!
