Cargill’s Prebiotic Fiber Helps Create Non-Yogurt Foods That Benefit Digestion

July 7, 2010: 02:42 AM EST
Cargill said it will unveil at the Institute of Food Technologists Food Expo (July 18-20) a “simple pureed soup” containing a soluble prebiotic fiber that helps promote digestive health by stimulating the normal, beneficial bacteria in the colon. According to the company, food manufacturers can use the ingredient, called Oliggo-Fiber inulin, to develop non-yogurt foods that support good digestive health. A Cargill exec pointed to market research showing that a third of Americans suffer from digestive problems and 40 percent are searching for foods and beverages beyond the yogurt aisle that improve digestive health. Another 78 percent are interested in digestive health products rich in fiber. The company said Oliggo-Fiber inulin is a prebiotic with excellent heat stability that allows production of innovative and shelf-stable products, such as soup.
