The benefits of prebiotic fiber
Not all fiber is equal! By definition, Fibersol® is a prebiotic fiber—utilized by host microorganisms that confer a health benefit. Fibersol® addresses consumers’ interest in both healthy digestion and holistic gut health.
Although most prebiotics are fiber, not all fiber is prebiotic. Only fiber that can be metabolized by beneficial gut microbes is prebiotic.
Prebiotic dietary fiber is becoming a sought-after ingredient, as consumers take proactive and holistic approaches to wellness. Add ‘contains prebiotic fiber’ to your label, when you add Fibersol® to your formulation.

With a wide variety of food, beverage and supplement applications lending themselves to the addition of prebiotics, consumers can find it easy to incorporate prebiotics into their diets.
Dietary fiber that meets the definition of a prebiotic answers consumers’ desires for a holistic approach to digestive health valued for its support of the microbiome, associated with nourishing intestinal flora.
