Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9806269A1] Dietary fibers have their properties modified by applying a shock wave to a dispersion of the fibers in a fluid carrier. The shock wave is applied by pressure from a piston, in either a single or a series of compressive strokes or pulses exerted on the dispersion. The resulting pressure treated dietary fiber exhibits reduced calories, higher insoluble fiber content, reduced moisture absorption properties, and greater uniformity from batch to batch.
