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 (www.foodinnovation.com) is the exclusive U.S. distributor of the NUTRIOSE soluble fiber product line, produced by Roquette Frères.
