Benefits Of Fiber-Enhancing Food Products Using Inulin And Oligofructose

April 22, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The market for fiber-enhanced food products is likely to continue to grow, thanks to increased consumer awareness of the important role that digestive health plays in overall health. According to the author, a spokesman for a food fortification company, inulin and oligofructose (OF) are the perfect ingredients to use when formulating with fiber. They occur naturally in several plants, fruits and vegetables and provide a variety of functional and nutritional benefits. They function as prebiotics, contributing to healthy gut flora. Because they are soluble, inulin and OF can be utilized in a variety of products: bars, beverages, cereals, baked goods, confections and dairy products, reducing sugar, fat and calorie content.
