Two natural fibers
For food and beverage brands, understanding consumer motivations and determining the expected function of food and beverage has become a critical step in developing new products. Consumer interest in functional foods continues to rise, food and beverage companies must follow suit. Under the development trend of healthy and meal-replacement snacks, more and more snack foods have begun to focus on the functional nutritional value of food, rather than just catering to the taste of the public.
We know that although dietary fiber is not absorbed by the body and does not produce calories, it is important for the balanced health of the body. Most of the fiber is extracted from plants or grains, let's learn about two natural fibers：Inulin and Fructo-oligosaccharide.
Ensures the balance of beneficial microorganisms in the intestine
Inulin and fructo-oligosaccharide are scientifically proven to be the only plant-derived prebiotics, which can effectively promote intestinal health, so that protein, calcium,magnesium, probiotics and other nutrients are better absorbed, thereby achieving weight control, reducing belly fat, detoxifying lean body and so on.
Prebiotics help boost immunity
The beneficial bacteria in inulin and fructo-oligosaccharide can protect the body by killing harmful microorganisms in the intestine and preventing them from multiplying in the intestine. These intestine microbes also help develop immune cells and strengthen the intestine barrier, where most immune cells are located. Beneficial microorganisms also produce beneficial substances called “Short-chain Fatty Acids”. Short-chain fatty acids are essential for intestine health and play a role in regulating the immune system.
Food manufacturers can use inulin and fructo-oligosaccharide to produce low-calorie cuisine, such as meal replacements, energy bars, ice cream, cookies, dairy products, smoothies, and consumers can follow healthy eating habits without being forced to give up enjoying food.
