Fibersol-2 Labeling & Certification Fibersol-2

Fibersol®-2 Labeling & Certification

Ingredient Statement

Fibersol®-2 can be labeled as “digestion resistant maltodextrin”, “resistant maltodextrin”, “maltodextrin”, or “soluble corn fiber”.

Any of the above can be followed by “fiber”, “dietary fiber”, “soluble dietary fiber”, “source of dietary fiber”, “dietary fiber [Fibersol®-2]“, or “Fibersol®-2″.

Example: maltodextrin (dietary fiber [Fibersol®-2])

Nutrient Content Claims

“Good source” claim = 10+% DV = 2.5 g total dietary fiber per serving = 2.8 g Fibersol®-2 per serving (assumes Fibersol®-2 is sole source of dietary fiber)

“Excellent source” claim = 20+% DV = 5.0 g total dietary fiber per serving = 5.6 g Fibersol®-2 per serving (assumed Fibersol®-2 is sole source of dietary fiber)

In support of nutrient content claims, factors such as the amount of total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium in the finished food must be taken into account to allow a claim.

Structure/Function Claims

In support of structure/function claims relating to the inclusion of Fibersol®-2, digestive resistant maltodextrin, in products, typically, a minimum 6.0+ g Fibersol®-2 as is per serving is needed to reference back to existing and ongoing clinical research. Factors such as amount of total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium in the finished food to which Fibersol®-2 is added must be taken into account to allow a claim. Customers assume all final responsibility for claim support of their product.

No Added Sugar and Sugar-Free Foods

Fibersol®-2 AG contains very few simple sugars for your consideration of a “no sugar added” or “sugar-free” claim (21CFR101.60), and can be used up to 10 grams (dry basis) in any food application while only providing 0.20 grams of sugars (typical value).
