Soluble corn fibre as a substitute for FOS and inulin

Soluble dietary fibre brings many advantages: from a nutritional perspective, soluble fibres are valuable ingredients that physiologically support weight management and digestion, contribute to a healthy cholesterol level, and promote bone health. 

Two well-known soluble fibres are inulin and oligofructose (fructooligosaccharide (FOS)). With the soluble corn fibre PROMITOR®, we can offer an alternative to these products, with outstanding qualities: 

  • Fibre content of 70 to 85% 
  • Neutral flavour 
  • Low residual sugar content 
  • Excellent tolerance, with a tolerance level twice as high as inulin 
  • Optimal process and storage stability 
  • Robust supply chain based on GMO-free corn

PROMITOR® is suitable for many applications:

  • Muesli bars and breakfast cereals
  • Snacks, biscuits, and crackers
  • Dairy products
  • Sauces and dips
  • Drinks

PROMITOR® is an especially practical ingredient for sugar reduction projects. With an energy rating of 2.6 kcal/g and a sweetness of approx. 10% that of saccharose, it is the ideal ingredient for devel-oping sugar-reduced foods. As a filler, PROMITOR® lends products an ideal texture and mouthfeel. Claims such as “no added sugar” or “sugar-reduced” can be made.

Unlike inulin and FOS, which break down into fructose over time in acidic foods, PROMITOR® does not become hydrolyzed and maintains a constant fibre content.

Our business unit Nutrition & Health will gladly provide you with additional information.
