Apple fiber was characterized by chemical and physical methods and found to be a good dietary fiber source and superior water binder to wheat and oat brans. Addition of 4% hydrated apple fiber to bread reduced loaf volume by 14%. Apple fiber was added to cookie and muffin at a replacement of at least 4% without a large adverse effect on cookie and muffin quality. Key words: water-holding capacity, water activity, baking property.
