Roquette has obtained Low FODMAP certification from Monash University, Australia, for its NUTRIOSE® soluble fiber range. This certification is an important milestone in Roquette’s commitment to supporting its customers in the development of tasty and nutritious foods that enable healthier lifestyles.
FODMAPs (fermentable oligosaccharides disaccharides monosaccharides and polyols) are a group of poorly absorbed or indigestible carbohydrates, which may cause digestive symptoms in people with a highly sensitive gut. A low FODMAP diet can be recommended as the first line of treatment in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Roquette’s NUTRIOSE® soluble fiber range comes from plant-based sources. In addition to its excellent digestive tolerance and its process stability, the fiber range helps support balanced intestinal health. It has a neutral taste that preserves the original flavor of food and beverage consumer products.
“One out of seven adults suffer from irritable bowel syndrome worldwide. Digestive health is an important issue today. Our functional and nutritional plant-based ingredients help maintain a healthier lifestyle. This Low FODMAP certification underscores our efforts to help consumers on specific diets and to identify and easily select suitable food ingredients that are of high quality and safe,” explains Jatin Sharma, global market manager at Roquette.
