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.
Blue Prairie Brands’ proprietary chicory flour is an ingredient that offers drop-in replacement potential for starches and added sugars in existing food products. Using Chicory root as the primary source of insulin, it fully meets the new FDA guidelines for dietary fiber claims, and the company’s prebiotic ingredients help maintain a healthy gut environment for beneficial bacteria that 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.
