Support digestive health with proven-effective soluble fibre

Today’s consumers are more attuned to the importance of fiber for digestive health and now understand its role in sustaining gut 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 fibre. 

One of the most effective soluble fibres and the purest form of short-chain fructooligosaccharide (scFOS®) available on the market today, NUTRAFLORA® soluble fibre helps increase the levels of good bacteria in the large intestine and is scientifically proven to support digestive health1. It 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 fibre is 30% as sweet as sugar – with fewer calories and a similar sweetness profile – allowing you to reduce sugar in your formulations.
