In fact, the reduction of added sugar can create other challenges in food and beverage products, and Fibersol is able to provide solutions that answer those challenges,” says Doris Dougherty, Fibersol Technical Service Representative at Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM). “In effect, Fibersol is helping formulators ‘redo’ sugar, by reducing, rebalancing, or replacing added sugar, as needed. We are very excited to have the ability to offer different solutions to address these challenges. Fibersol helps formulators take sugar and calorie reduction to the next level by adding fiber in virtually any food or beverage application.”

Each gram of Fibersol-2 is nine-per-cent fiber and provides only 0.02 grams of sugar, 1.6 Kcal, and can replace many of the non-sweetening functional properties of sugar, offering an option to replace sugar and achieve the caloric reduction that many consumers expect. Easy-to-use Fibersol can be dropped into most applications with minimal formulation adjustments. It is completely soluble, adds minimal viscosity and has no added flavour, taste or colour. It is also heat, acid, shear and freeze/thaw stable. Fibersol maintains its fiber content under these conditions and in processes that require culturing or fermentation. Additionally, Fibersol is easy to use, because Fibersol adds fiber without absorbing water or imparting a gritty texture. www.fibersol.com
