Westchester, Ill. – Ingredion Incorporated, a provider of ingredient solutions, produces Nutraflora prebiotic fibre.

Just recently, the prebiotic fibre was approved by Health Canada as a dietary fibre source.

Nutraflora prebiotic fibre is a short-chain fructooligosaccharide (scFOS).

It’s derived from pure sugar cane using a bio-fermentation proprietary process and non-GMO ingredients.


It can improve calcium absorption, maintain proper digestive function and it can support immune system health.

Prebiotic fibres are non-digestible food ingredients that when consumed, provide a beneficial physiological effect by selectively stimulating the favourable growth and/or activity of a limited number of beneficial indigenous bacteria found naturally in the body’s intestines.

The company says Nutraflora’s consistent, simple molecular structure and 95 per cent concentration ensure that it is a very effective prebiotic fibre.
