Fiber is essential to maintaining a healthy digestive system. Unlike the other food nutrients -- fats, proteins, or carbohydrates - dietary fiber is not absorbed by our bodies. Instead, it helps other nutrients be absorbed and moderates the contents of our stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Some fiber feeds the healthy bacteria which line our digestive tracts. Other fiber acts as a bulking agent and can help scrub out unhealthy bacteria invaders. A healthy diet should include both insoluble and soluble fiber. 

Soluble fiber dissolves in water. This type of fiber forms a gel-like material, which can slow passage of food through the digestive system. Soluble fiber also feeds our healthy bacteria and is often referred to as having prebiotic properties. Soluble fiber can be found in plants, and fruits and vegetables including oats, lentils, barley, flax, apples, citrus, carrots, and peas.

Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water. This fiber can accelerate passage of food through our digestive system, provide bulking, and aid the metabolism of soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber is found in whole grains, seeds and nuts, wheat bran, chia, and many vegetables including cauliflower and dark leafy greens.

Fructooligosaccharides

Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are fibrous polymers of fructose anchored by a single glucose. FOS imparts a sweet, pleasant flavor at a lower caloric content (1.5 kcal/g) than table sugar, making it ideal for low-calorie applications. more

Guar Fiber* (Partially Hydrolyzed)

IP NON-GMO POLYDEXTROSE

Partially replace sugar and fat in formulations with polydextrose while maintaining creaminess and the "feel" of the product when consumed. more

Isomaltooligosaccharides

Isomaltooligosaccharides (IMO) are fibrous polymers of glucose linked together in such a way that the human body can only partially digest them. This fiber is a sugar substitute, imparting 2.8-3.2 kcal/g - or roughly 75% the caloric content of table sugar. more

Pea Fiber

Pea Fiber is a natural food-grade vegetable fiber sourced from Canadian Yellow Peas, offers both nutrition and functionality. Made via the same wet processing as pea starches and pea protein isolates, pea fiber contains high levels of both soluble and insoluble fiber. more
