What We Make

products

9FIBER® offers a variety of Engineered Organic Fibers, including both food and non-food cellulosic additives.

 

Our convenient dry blends come ready to use in pre-weighed, industrial containers in specified quantities. This simplifies incorporation into final products of our uniform, high-quality, hyper-clean engineered material.

9FIBER®  hyper-clean and decontaminated particles and fibers provide a higher degree of whiteness than conventional hemp-derived pulp due to the removal of lignin and metals from cellular cavities; the chasms absorb parent mix into the cellulosic structure with better integrity and colorfastness.

Engineered Organic Fiber™

non-food cellulosic additives

9FIBER® created a family of Engineered Organic Fiber™ that, when incorporated into non-food applications such as blends or pulp, increases strength, stiffness, and thermal performance, making compounds suitable for structural applications while providing eco-friendly content.

 

Currently, conventional virgin forest cellulosic-based textiles include rayon (viscose) and lyocell fibers, which carry a chemical and environmental burden. This could be reduced with the 9FIBER® production processes.

In addition to this, consumers are increasingly concerned about synthetic fibers and the plastic contamination they produce. Consumers are seeking more natural fibers, and 9FIBER® ingredients are well-positioned to meet that need.

NINIX™
ENGINEERED ORGANIC FIBER™

Short  Engineered Organic Fiber™ allows product developers to meet consumer demand for environmentally friendly

products that are highly functional yet cost-effective.

 

Additionally, they can help processors and OEMs to meet their sustainability objectives by reducing processing costs.

lite engineered organic fiber™ (LEOF)

FAMILY OF cellulosic additiveS

We have optimized LEOF™ for food, cosmetics, and composite additives in consumer products. The key performance characteristics of LEOF™ are a material input uncompromised by contaminants, and an increase in bulk and fiber content without a major impact on flavor or color. Our materials are derived from the agricultural waste of known, unknown, or mixed cultivars. 

cellulosic food additives

Cellulosic additives are a popular fiber supplement and 9FIBER’s premium production-ready hemp-derived additives can be easily incorporated into existing manufacturing processes with no need for re-tooling.

LEOF™

ENGINEERED ORGANIC FIBER™

CALORIC SUBSTITUTE

Short Engineered Organic Fiber™ provides the volume or bulk to food ingredients. As a hemp-cellulosic additive, it is plant-based, low water use, circular processing, zero waste, and earth positive. In development.

ENGINEERED ORGANIC FIBER™

ANTI-CAKE

Short Engineered Organic Fiber™ has the ability to absorb moisture and coat ingredients in a fine powder, making it the ingredient of

choice for shredded and grated cheeses, spice mixes, and powdered drink mixes

anti-caking applications. In development.

HYCHOW™

ENGINEERED ORGANIC FIBER™

PET CARE

Since Short Engineered Organic Fiber™ is added to increase the fiber content of wet and dry foods in place of corn, straw, or virgin lumber ingredients, pet food can be labeled “free of wood filler”.  In development.

GEL PASTE

The gelling action of Short Engineered Organic Fiber™, when combined with water, provides both thickening and stabilizing qualities in the food to which it is added. Short Engineered Organic Fiber™ gel acts similarly to an emulsion, suspending ingredients within a solution and preventing water from

separating out.  In development.
