Canada Approves Company’s Wheat Starch As Fiber Booster For Baked Goods

March 7, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Canadian food manufacturers that make flour-based products such as bread, muffins, pasta, etc., now have a government-approved resistant wheat starch to include as a dietary fiber source. MGP Ingredients received approval from Health Canada for its Fibersym RW product after submitting extensive data from lab, animal and human studies proving that the ingredient is a “non-digestible carbohydrate” that produces “energy-yielding metabolites through colonic fermentation” and is therefore a legitimate fiber source. Tests show Fibersym RW delivers a minimum 85 percent total dietary fiber while also lowering caloric content in baked goods.
