NUTRIOSE Benefits Colonic Health

 BRIDGEWATER, N.J.—Consumption of NUTRIOSE® fiber can increase beneficial saccharolytic flora and decrease harmful bacteria in the colon, according to a poster presented at the Dietary Fibre 2006 Symposium, held in June in Helsinki, Finland. The poster, published by researchers from Roquette Frères, the supplier of NUTRIOSE, detailed a two-party study; the first part involved 48 volunteers who took 10 g/d or 15 g/d of NUTRIOSE 06 for 14 days. The 10 g/d group showed an increase in beneficial saccharolytic flora, while the 15 g/d group had a decrease in Clostridium perfringens. The second part of the study, conducted over 35 days, used 45 g/d and showed similar decreases in Clostridium perfringens and increases in lactobacilli.

National Starch Food Innovation ( is the exclusive U.S. distributor of the NUTRIOSE soluble fiber product line, produced by Roquette Frères.
