plans to promote its Fibersol line of
soluble corn fiber ingredients at IFT18,
the Institute of Food Technologists' annual meeting and exposition July 1518 in Chicago. Fibersol is digestion resistant and a prebiotic fiber fermented
by microflora in the colon, according to
ADM/Matsutani. Clinical studies have
shown Fibersol helps support or maintain intestinal regularity, helps control
the rise in blood glucose after a meal
and may attenuate the rise in blood triglycerides following a meal. When 10
grams of Fibersol are consumed with a
meal, satiety may increase.
