BLUE PRAIRIE BRANDS
Founded in 2013
Tom Burrows, CEO
Blue Prairie Brands has developed ingredients and products for use in the functional food and dietary fiber markets.
Chicory root is the primary source of inulin and Blue Prairie Brand’s proprietary chicory flour meets the new FDA guidelines for dietary fiber claims. Blue Prairie Brands’s proprietary chicory flour is an ingredient that offers drop-in replacement potential for starches and added sugars in existing food products. The company’s prebiotic ingredients help maintain a healthy gut environment for beneficial bacteria and are critical for optimal health.
Our investment in Blue Prairie Brands was driven by the company’s ability to grow, process and sell a non-bitter chicory flour that increases fiber in the diet, reduces added sugar and improves the microbiome.
