REIGATE, EnglandDuPont Nutrition & Health's soluble fiber and low-calorie specialty carbohydrate, Litesse®, can help increase satiety and reduce food intake according to a recent study. The study was conducted by the Functional Food Centre of Oxford Brookes University, and published in the European Journal of Nutrition (Eur J Nutr 2012, June 21), which recorded a 10-percent reduction in energy intake at a monitored lunch following consumption of a polydextrose preload 60 minutes prior to the lunch. The study team concluded that polydextrose has the potential to reduce food intake" and could be potentially used for appetite control." Results of a further positive study are expected to be published later this year.
Part of the DuPont Danisco® ingredient range, Litesse is a recognized prebiotic fiber that contributes just one calorie per gram and mediates a low-glycemic impact. These factors, combined with its ability to enhance satiety, mean that it can be used to develop innovative foods that are both satisfying and lower in calories. Available in three grades, this carbohydrate is suitable for almost all food and beverage applications.
In 2011, DuPont expanded production of Litesse in order to build on its success and further capture opportunities in the health and nutrition market.
