What is Fibersol®-2AG

Fibersol®-2 AG, digestive resistant maltodextrin, a soluble corn fiber, has been specially designed for applications in which rapid dispersion and quick dissolution are key for final product success. Fibersol®-2 AG is an agglomerated form of digestive resistant maltodextrin and is ideal in specialized applications. Fibersol®-2 AG is a spray-dried powder produced by the pyrolysis and controlled enzymatic hydrolysis of cornstarch. Fibersol®-2 AG, digestion resistant maltodextrin, analytically and nutritionally meets the definition of dietary fiber for nutrition labeling
purposes, as published by the American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC) and proposed by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). It is GRAS as maltodextrin, free flowing, readily dispersible in water, and produces a totally soluble, clear solution. With no inherent flavor of its own, Fibersol®-2 AG provides a variety of physical and sensory functionality to foods and beverages, and several physiological benefits when consumed.

*Fibersol®-2 digestion resistant maltodextrin is a dietary fiber. This classification is consistent with both the
American Association of Cereal Chemists’ and the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of
Sciences’ (NAS) definitions of dietary fiber. In both cases, Fibersol®-2 digestion resistant maltodextrin is classified
as “resistant maltodextrin,” and in both cases, “resistant maltodextrin” is classified as a dietary fiber.

** In April 2001, AOAC formally approved analytical methodology (“Determination of Total Dietary Fiber and
Resistant Maltodextrin in Select Foods by Combination of Enzyme-Gravimetric and LC,” AOAC method #2001.03),
which measures digestion resistant maltodextrin
