A slow-fermenting polydextrose now offers a protective effect on colon bacteria. With the increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders, Litesse[r] polydextrose from Danisco Sweeteners is designed to be resistant to human digestive enzymes. It acts as a prebiotic fiber in the colon, stimulating desirable bacteria and competitively reducing undesirable bacteria. When used in functional beverages and nutritional products, Litesse polydextrose offers food formulators a new approach to improving digestive health and providing additional benefits to their customers, both in their product and in their labeling.
