Diets rich in sugars long have been linked to heart disease and diabetes, due to the faster glucose and insulin response triggered by the intake of sugar. A prebiotic ingredient from ORAFTI can substitute for sucrose or glucose in sweet treats, reducing the glycemic response an average of 70%, based on a study by Leatherhead Food International. This glycemic response is associated with increased health risks. Raftilose oligofructose also can replace dietary fat without impacting mouthfeel; prebiotics such as Raftilose[r] and Raftiline[r] also are known to improve gut health and well-being. ORAFTI,
