NUTRAFLORA prebiotic fiber – a standout among dietary fibers
Today’s consumers are more attuned to the importance of dietary fibers and prebiotic fibers for maintaining digestive health. You can now give consumers the enhanced fiber, reduced sugar and digestive support they want — along with just-right taste and superior performance — with just one proven ingredient, NUTRAFLORA® soluble prebiotic fiber.
One of the most effective prebiotic fibers and the purest form of short-chain fructooligosaccharide (scFOS) available on the market today, NUTRAFLORA® soluble prebiotic fiber helps increase the levels of good bacteria in the large intestine and is scientifically proven to support digestive health.1 The prebiotic fiber can be easily incorporated into a wide range of applications such as bars, snacks, cold cereal, dairy, beverages and even confectionery. Produced from non-GMO sucrose (cane sugar), NUTRAFLORA® soluble prebiotic fiber is 30% as sweet as sugar — with fewer calories and a similar sweetness profile — allowing you to reduce sugar in your formulations while promoting digestive health.
