It can be a challenge to achieve the daily recommended value of fiber (28g for a typical 2,000 calorie/day diet in the U.S.) by simply consuming foods that are naturally high in fiber. In fact, there’s a fiber gap between adequate intake and actual intake for the majority of consumers.
Taking in enough dietary fiber on a daily basis is challenging for today’s consumers, who are faced with busy lives that often prevent them from eating a balanced diet. In fact, most people consume less fiber than recommended. They also often find that it can be difficult to increase fiber intake just by consuming additional fruits, vegetables and legumes.
The current Daily Value (DV) for total dietary fiber in the U.S. is 28g per day (for a typical 2,000 calorie per day diet). Studies show that actual intake can fall far below adequate intake.
Though consumers may be focused on adding fiber to their diet, they often fall short.
Food manufacturers can help close this gap by offering fiber-enriched products—simply by adding Fibersol® to their formulations. Well-tolerated Fibersol® allows for positive nutrition and indulgences with minimal gastrointestinal discomfort—from morning to night.
Effective and well tolerated
With products containing fiber ingredients that are less tolerated than Fibersol®, consumers may feel discomfort as they nourish and snack throughout the day. Comfort is of the utmost importance to consumers, who may abandon their efforts to consume more fiber if they encounter gastrointestinal discomfort.
Delivering on taste and texture
Fibersol® can add fiber with little to no impact on taste or texture, two factors very important to consumers. Actually, Fibersol® can maintain—or improve—desired product attributes in virtually any application.
