FIBER & DIGESTIVE TOLERANCE
Consumers are aware of the health benefits of increased fiber intake and are trying to include more fiber in their diets. Fibersol® can help deliver the desired benefits of fiber with less digestive intolerance or gastric discomfort than other types of dietary fiber.
Solving the tolerance challenge
Many consumers understand the benefits of dietary fiber and therefore want to include it in their diets—but at the same time, they have concerns about potential gastrointestinal discomfort.
Fibersol® is fermented in the colon at a slower rate compared to other soluble fibers such as inulin or fructooligosaccharides, which helps lessen bloating or gastric discomfort.
Well-tolerated FIbersol® makes it easy for you to help close the fiber gap, comfortably.
Because Fibersol® is well tolerated, formulators can use it to add even more fiber to food and beverage products. Brands can deliver the dietary fiber needed to fill consumers’ fiber gap, with little concern for digestive discomfort.
Backed by over 30 years of extensive clinical research, and proven well tolerated as high as 68 grams per day,* Fibersol® is well established to be better tolerated than fructooligosaccharides, inulin and certain sugar alcohols.
The daily recommended value (DRV) of fiber in the U.S. is 28g for a typical 2,000 calorie per day diet.
Well-tolerated Fibersol® makes it easier for consumers to take in the recommended amount of daily fiber, with minimal discomfort.
Digestive tolerance creates a world of opportunity
Proven, well-tolerated Fibersol® opens up opportunities for food, beverage and supplement manufacturers, by enabling claims in a range of categories, including:
Only well-tolerated dietary fiber ingredients will support repeat purchases of consumer products. Formulators who rely on inulin and other less well-tolerated dietary fibers may find their products on consumers’ undesirable ‘never purchase again’ list.1
Proven to be well tolerated at levels significantly higher than other fibers, Fibersol®
can help deliver the desired benefits of fiber with less gastrointestinal discomfort—even when consumed in a variety of products throughout the day—to help ensure that consumers come back for more.
Fibersol® helps create repeat purchase opportunities:

It’s a complex relationship. Indigestible carbohydrates create desired fermentation in the large intestine that can lead to undesirable gastrointestinal side effects. Rapid fermentation is associated with greater gastrointestinal side effects and discomfort, while slower fermentation is associated with fewer side effects and significantly higher levels of digestive tolerance.

As a well-tolerated prebiotic fiber, at least 90% of Fibersol® escapes digestion in the small intestines, and is slowly fermented in the large intestine.
