LNK Earns RINTEK Award with FiberCreme
At LNK, the innovation was ignited by concerns related to poor diets adopted by many Indonesian and how they have led to various health issues. Multiple studies prove that unhealthy diets, including lack of fiber consumption, have a major role in causing a lot of non-communicable diseases such as hypercholesterolemia, hyperuricemia, obesity, and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
However, fiber consumption by average adults is still very low. According to a research by an Indonesian organization in 2018, 95% of its citizen couldn’t even meet the recommended amount of 25-35 grams of fiber per day.
That’s why LNK, which was established as a manufacturer of spray-dried ingredients, came up with innovation called FiberCreme, non-dairy creamer with high fiber content. The product was first introduced to the Indonesian market in 2017 as an alternative to dairy and coconut milk in various dishes or beverages.
Made of fiber source oligosaccharides extracted from cassava, FiberCreme is the first plant-based creamer in Indonesia that offers creamy taste and health benefits at the same time. As demand for healthy food alternatives increases, FiberCreme continues to fill the market with new variants like FiberCreme Vegan that is made with 100% plant-based ingredients and FiberCreme MCT that’s enriched with medium chain triglycerides beneficial for weight loss and other health conditions.
FiberCreme Also Supports National Economic Growth and the Environment
FiberCreme isn’t all about the creamy taste and health values. To produce this creamer, LNK uses 85-90% locally-sourced raw material which helps the growth of Indonesia’s economy. By doing so, FiberCreme also helps reduce carbon footprint and the effect of global warming.
