ADM/Matsutani: Versatile Dietary Fiber
ADM/Matsutani’s Fibersol is prebiotic fiber that aids nutrition, weight management, sugar reduction, satiety and gut health
ADM/Matsutani LLC will use its IFT18 Booth #S2002 to showcase Fibersol®, a premier line of soluble dietary fiber ingredients. Fibersol offers support for nutrition, weight management, sugar reduction, satiety and gut health.
Fibersol products come with strong technical and scientific expertise and are backed by reliable service and supply. They are available in a variety of formats—including dry, liquid, an agglomerated powder and non-GMO—to meet the needs of any application.
Fibersol is digestion resistant and is a prebiotic fiber fermented by microflora in the colon. This provides potential benefits for gut health and can support “good-for-you” structure/function claims for qualifying products. Clinical studies show Fibersol is a prebiotic fiber, helps support or maintain intestinal regularity, helps control the rise in blood glucose after a meal, may attenuate the rise in blood triglycerides following a meal, and when 10g are consumed with a meal, may increase satiety.
Fibersol offers many formulation benefits including: minimal viscosity; no added flavor, taste, or color; and low hygroscopicity in dry formulations. Fibersol-2® is 90% fiber and provides only 0.02g of sugar per gram, 1.6 Kcal per gram, and can replace many of the non-sweetening functional properties of sugar. It is water soluble and forms a clear solution.
It is also heat-, acid-, shear- and freeze/thaw-stable, and maintains its fiber content under those conditions, thus allowing for ultimate formulation and food processing versatility. Enhanced positive organoleptic attributes are reported for Fibersol-2, including improved mouthfeel and bitterness masking, but it contributes no flavor of its own.
