Fiber Tolerance

Well-Tolerated Fibersol Helps Promote Wellness

Seventy seven percent of American consumers—aware of the health benefits of increased fiber intake—are trying to include more fiber in their diets. Though they are committed to increasing their fiber intake, they understandably worry about potential discomfort. Ease their worries, with Fibersol!

The Fibersol® line of low-viscosity soluble dietary fiber ingredients have been shown to help maintain intestinal regularity while being gentler. This is because Fibersol is fermented in the colon at a slower rate, compared to other soluble fibers such as inulin or fructooligosaccharides, which helps minimize bloating or gastric discomfort.

Not only does Fibersol help maintain intestinal regularity and maintain a healthy digestive system, it does it with less worry. Many studies have confirmed that Fibersol is well tolerated, even when tested at a consumption rate as high as 68 grams per day. Typical results showed no side effects, and if any, they were considered mild. Fibersol is well established* to be better tolerated than fructooligosaccharides, inulin and certain sugar alcohols. With the addition of well-tolerated Fibersol to foods consumed routinely, consumers can add enough fiber to their diet without without sacrificing their comfort.

Well-tolerated FIbersol makes it easy for your consumers to close the fiber gap, most comfortably!

*Data from several studies, have established that Fibersol is better tolerated than inulin or fructooligosaccharides 1,2. A dose of 10 grams of inulin is typically considered as a well tolerated dose. Many studies have confirmed that Fibersol is well tolerated, even when tested at a consumption level as high as 68 grams per day 3-11.
