Liquid, easy-to-use, stable format enables manufactures to support digestive health with scientifically demonstrated prebiotic fiber
WESTCHESTER, Illinois, October 10, 2016 – Ingredion Incorporated, a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to diversified industries, today announced that its NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber is now available in liquid form for ease of use.
The effectiveness of NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber is built on a foundation of more than 200 studies and 20 years of research. NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber has been scientifically demonstrated to support digestive and immune health, provide a good or excellent source of fiber, and can be used to reduce sugar in foods and beverages such as bars, baked goods, functional beverages and dairy products.
“By now offering NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber in liquid form, we are helping manufacturers to simplify their operations,” said Marco Villone, vice president of marketing, US and Canada for Ingredion Incorporated. “By formulating with NUTRAFLORA® L95-S soluble prebiotic fiber, food developers have the ability to easily go beyond basic nutrition and bring consumers the fiber and digestive support they want.”
NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber delivers numerous formulation advantages such as flavor enhancement, fat-mimetic properties, improved mouthfeel and is suitable for use in low calorie products. Liquid NUTRAFLORA® L95-S soluble prebiotic fiber is easy to use and comes in a high purity, stable liquid format. It has a quick dispersion rate with low viscosity – making it ready to use and easy to pump, process and handle.
About NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber
NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber is derived from non-GMO sucrose (cane sugar) utilizing a bio-fermentation proprietary process and non-GMO ingredients. The result: the purest form of short-chain fructooligosaccharides (scFOS®) available on the market. ScFOS is also found in a variety of fruits, vegetables and gains. However, to get one teaspoon (~ 3 grams) of scFOS, one would have to eat the equivalent of 15 onions, 22 bananas or 383 garlic cloves. NUTRAFLORA® soluble prebiotic fiber selectively stimulates the growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine. The consistent, simple molecular structure and 95% concentration of NUTRAFLORA® prebiotic fiber ensure that it is one of the most effective prebiotic fibers available. NUTRAFLORA® soluble prebiotic fiber is 30% as sweet as sugar – with fewer calories and a similar sweetness profile – allowing manufactures to reduce sugar in formulations.
