May 2012/NutraSolutions -- Cargill’s Oliggo-Fiber inulin is a natural, invisible soluble fiber that is virtually undetectable in most foods and beverages. It is now available as a fiber syrup, as well as in the free-flowing powder form food and beverage manufacturers have been using to discreetly add fiber’s health benefits to a variety of products. This fiber syrup provides manufacturing flexibility for a wide range of food applications, while still delivering the benefits of Oliggo-Fiber inulin in powder form. It is a virtually invisible, liquid soluble fiber made from chicory root and is ideal for bars and fruit preparations. It also is an excellent option for food formulators to use in reducing fat and calorie content in products, such as those targeted at weight management, because it can act as a fat and carbohydrate replacer while maintaining desired texture. – Cargill Inc., www.cargill.com/food/health NS
