THE NATURAL DRIVING POWER OF DIGESTIVE HEALTH

The Natural Driving Power of Digestive Health 
.
With the development of enhanced food, beverages and dietary supplements, consumers have become increasingly aware of the health benefit of dietary fibers. 
 
Commenting on the rapid growth of the dietary fiber market, David Daguet, Technology Chief at France-based Nexira mainly ascribed the consumption growth trends to people's pursuit of health and natural products. The health benefit of dietary fibers is widely known, and scientists have never ceased their dietary fiber research. As the research goes more specific, scientists have found that dietary fibers play a positive role in improving human digestive functions, intestinal movement, sense of satiety, weight control, intestinal probiotics and blood sugar regulation.
Daguet also noted that researchers have also discovered that dietary fibers have the function of reducing the risk of inflammation, obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. 
 
Nexira has developed a non-transgenic, natural soluble dietary fiber Fibregum™ which has gum arabic as the raw material. Fibregum™ has a soluble dietary fiber content of over 90%, and the product also bears a clean label.
For dietary fibers, nutritional properties are their primary competitiveness.
Fibregum™ is a mild dietary fiber which possesses high digestive tolerance. Some soluble dietary fibers can cause gastrointestinal discomfort when they are fermented. Human clinical studies have shown that a dosage up to 50g/day Fibregum™ still possesses a high digestive tolerance because its fermentation in the large intestine is very slow and generates very little gas.
Fibergum™ also has powerful prebiotic properties. In its SHIME (Simulator of the Human Intestinal Microbial Ecosystem) analysis, Nexira has found that Fibregum™ can produce substances such as short-chain fatty acids during fermentation in the large intestine, which is beneficial to the growth of probiotics. At dosages of 6g, 10g and 15g, Fibregum™ as an excellent prebiotic can help balance colonies (micro ecosystem) in the intestinal tract, especially the colon colonies.
 
As consumers are increasingly conscious of health and daily calorie intake, low-calorie products have a great advantage. Scientific estimates put the calorific value of Fibregum™ at 1.3-1.8Kcal/g.
As Type II diabetes and other rich man’s diseases increase, many companies have developed fiber products that can control the blood glucose level. As a highly digestible carbohydrate, Fibregum™ has a glycemic index (GI) of 0. A large number of studies have shown that Fibregum™ can also help reduce GI, making it an ideal raw material for low glycemic foodstuffs.
Various researches have shown that gum arabic can significantly increase the absorption of moisture and mineral. Fibregum™ can effectively accelerate hydration so as to supplement the excessive loss of sodium salt due to sweating during exercises. Therefore, it is conducive to the absorption of nutrients. 
In the human oral cavity, Fibregum™ will neither be hydrolyzed by saliva or oral flora nor cause dental caries. Thus it can be applied in the development of sugar-free products and various dental care products.
Dietary fibers can not only bring nutritional benefit but also provide products with a unique taste and textural feel. For example, Fibregum™ has the properties of taste enhancement and flavor release. In addition, it is highly and fast soluble in water at room temperature and can maintain good stability under extreme process and storage conditions (low pH, heat & yeast fermentation), without affecting product development.
 
Today, snack makers prefer to combine snacks with prebiotic fibers and probiotic bacteria. Food, beverage and dietary supplement manufacturers have all seen the growth potential of health-enhancing prebiotic and probiotic markets.
