Fibersol, a full line of soluble prebiotic dietary fiber ingredients by ADM/Matsutani, has received Low FODMAP certification from Monash University.

FODMAPs (fermentable oligo-saccharides, disaccharides, mono-saccharides and polyols) are a group of poorly-absorbed dietary sugars that ferment in the gut, which can trigger symptoms of IBS and other functional gastrointestinal disorders for some individuals.

As a low FODMAP prebiotic dietary fiber, Fibersol​ provides a solution for developers looking to add gut health benefits to food and beverage products, and meet the dietary needs of those living with these conditions.

"With this certification, Fibersol joins a list of foods and ingredients recognized by Monash University as safe options for the millions of people living with IBS worldwide,"​ said ADM/Matsutani. "As a low FODMAP prebiotic dietary fiber, Fibersol provides an easy solution for developers looking to add gut health benefits to food and beverage products, and meet the dietary needs of those living with these conditions."

Fibersol's portfolio of dietary fiber products includes applications ranging from bakery, cereal, and snacks to beverage and dairy applications. 

The company added that the certification builds upon clinical research that shows Fibersol helps support or maintain intestinal regularity and is well tolerated at dosages of up to 68 grams when consumed throughout the day. 

Digestive discomfort is a strong purchase driver for many consumers, according to Greg Dodson, vice president, fiber, ADM.

“In a recent study we conducted, nearly seven out of 10 of consumers said they would not purchase a product again if it caused digestive discomfort, even if they were satisfied with its taste, price, ingredients, and nutritional value."

Fibersol ferments slowly in the colon delivering the desired benefits of fiber (e.g. normalize bowel movements, supports weight management, and controls blood sugar levels) without digestive intolerance or gastric discomfort.
