Not all fiber is equal! Although most prebiotics are fiber, not all fiber is prebiotic. Only fiber that can be metabolized by beneficial gut microbes—like Fibersol®—is prebiotic.
Prebiotic fiber has caught consumers’ attention as another way to support digestive, metabolic and immune health. There is increased demand for products that nourish intestinal flora, with consumers increasingly interested in prebiotics as they acknowledge the importance of overall gut health.
By definition, Fibersol® is a prebiotic fiber*—it supports both digestion and growth of gut-friendly flora— and it is also well tolerated. Fibersol® is certified low FODMAP** by Monash University, Australia.
Prebiotic dietary fiber is becoming a sought-after ingredient, as consumers take proactive and holistic approaches to wellness. Fibersol® makes it easy to add prebiotic benefits to a wide variety of food, beverage and dietary supplement applications, so you can help consumers easily incorporate prebiotics into their dietary lifestyle.
At 15g per day (3.75g of Fibersol®-2 4x per day) Fibersol®:
Fibersol® is a premier line of soluble prebiotic fibers offering developers and formulators a wide range of solutions, so you can give consumers tasty, fiber-full, well-tolerated foods and beverages with satiety and physiological benefits.
As a prebiotic dietary fiber, Fibersol® may help modulate the microbiome by nourishing the intestinal flora and promoting the growth of good bacteria. And, since Fibersol® is proven well tolerated—as high as 68 grams per day, 4x the tolerance level of inulin—it invites consumers to come back for more.§
