A 90% water-soluble dietary fiber, Fibersol[r]-2, has a glycemic index of less than five, which compares to that of 100 for glucose. The ingredient helps maintain healthy blood sugar and insulin levels. Fibersol-2 also helps maintain healthy serum lipids including blood triglycerides and cholesterol. It further helps maintain healthful intestinal function, microflora and regularity. Being tasteless, odorless, colorless, acid/heat and freeze/thaw stable makes it compatible with virtually all food, beverage, and dietary supplement applications and processes.
