Consumers want to experience fiber’s wellness benefits with less gastric discomfort
The fiber 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 any potential gastric discomfort.
The fiber solution:
The Fibersol® line of low-viscosity soluble prebiotic dietary fiber ingredients have been shown to help maintain intestinal regularity while being gentler.
How? 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.
Fibersol and tolerance
- Fibersol helps maintain intestinal regularity and is found to be well tolerated at dosages of up to 68 grams when consumed throughout the day.
- Fibersol is well established to be better tolerated than fructooligosaccharides, inulin and certain sugar alcohols.
- Typical results showed little-to-no side effects, and if any, they were considered mild.
The Fibersol advantage
Because Fibersol is well tolerated, formulators can use it to add even more fiber to food and beverage products, delivering consumers the dietary fiber needed to fill their fiber gap, with less concern for digestive discomfort.
