Nexira used SupplySide West 2017 to showcase Fibregum™ and its latest clinical studies.
The Fibregum product line range already has captured the attention of numerous companies for its technical and functional benefits. It is a 100% vegetable ingredient offering more than 90% dietary soluble fiber, great digestive tolerance, proven prebiotic properties, and associated intestinal health benefits backed by numerous clinical studies.
Based on the preliminary positive results of Fibregum, Nexira also has conducted a new study to reinforce and demonstrate all the scientific background of Fibregum as a new natural alternative to protect the gut barrier.
Nexira also has released a new video to help food and beverage formulators understand more about Fibregum’s origins and benefits:
Certified FODMAP Friendly
Nexira also is proud to announce that Fibregum now is FODMAP Friendly™ certified.
FODMAP stands for Fermentable, Oligosaccharide, Disaccharide, Monosaccharide and Polyols. These fermentable sugars are poorly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and so easily and quickly fermented by gut bacteria causing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) manifestations (i.e. gas, bloating, and discomforts) for predisposed people.
People requiring a low FODMAP diet are 15% more common than people requiring a gluten-free diet.1 Developed by researchers at Monash University, in Australia, the low FODMAP diet is scientifically proven to be the most effective dietary approaches for people with digestive disorders or IBS symptoms.
Dietary fibers are essential for a healthy diet. Benefits of a high-fiber diet are numerous, in particular contributing to normalize bowel movements, to maintain bowel health, to control blood sugar and fat levels or to maintain a healthy weight. Nevertheless, global dietary fibers intake is still insufficient.
Fibregum™ is the solution to develop finished products rich in fiber and suitable for low FODMAP diet.
Thanks to its highly branched structure, Fibregum, a FODMAP Friendly non-digestible carbohydrate, is gradually fermented from transverse colon to descending colon without generating discomforts. Moreover, with its guaranteed minimum content of 90% fiber, Fibregum is a way to contribute to the dietary fiber intake. Fibregum is easy-to-use in a large range of applications such as bakery, cereals and bars and beverages.
