As a reminder, FODMAP is an acronym that stands for Fermentable, Oligosaccharide, Disaccharide, Monosaccharide and Polyols. These fermentable sugars are poorly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and so easily and quickly fermented by gut bacteria causing IBS manifestations (i.e. gas, bloating, and discomforts) for predisposed people.
People requiring a low FODMAP diet are 15 more common than people requiring a gluten-free diet.1 Developed by researchers at Monash University, in Australia, the low FODMAP diet is scientifically proven to be the most effective dietary approach for people with digestive disorders or symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Dietary fibers are essential for a healthy diet. Benefits of a high-fiber diet are numerous, in particular contributing to normalize bowel movements, to maintain bowel health, to control blood sugar & fat levels or to maintain a healthy weight. Nevertheless, global dietary fibers intake in still insufficient.
Fibregum™ is the solution to develop finished products rich in fiber and suitable for low FODMAP diet.
Thanks to its highly branched structure, Fibregum™, a FODMAP Friendly TM non-digestible carbohydrate, is gradually fermented from transverse colon to descending colon without generating discomforts. Moreover, with its guaranteed minimum content of 90% fiber, Fibregum™ is a way to contribute to the dietary fiber intake. Fibregum™ is easy-to-use in a large range of applications such as bakery, cereals and bars and beverages.
