Product & Philosophy

Our fibers are naturally treated, but tasteless and reduced in harmful substances. In our unique, patented manufacturing process we renounce completely chemical treatment: We do neither use bleaching procedures, nor acid/base or encymatic treatments. The result is an additive made by nature, suiting perfectly for the needs of the food and feed industry.

During the manufacturing process, it is very important to us to produce a quality which is homogenous, up to specifications as well as tailor made and ready for use in our customer’s application. Many different granulations and sievings are possible. We offer you maximum safety and flexibility.

Application

The innovative and naturally treated fibers from westfiber have far more advantages compared to just standard fibers. They can be used for many applications in the feed and food industry and have an added value for many products. Please study the details!
