Global leader in natural and organic ingredients, Nexira, is proud to announce that Fibregum is now FODMAP Friendly certified!

Fibregum is an all-natural range, with a guaranteed minimum content of 90% dietary fibres.

Fibregum is non-GMO and available in organic grade. With its unique and highly branched structure, Fibregum has a high digestive tolerance.

Fibregum is suitable for a low FODMAP diet and FODMAP Friendly finished products.

Fibregum has been successfully certified FODMAP Friendly by the Australian FODMAP Friendly certification programme.

The FODMAP Friendly programme is the only registered certification trademark worldwide. Their laboratory tests the FODMAP levels in food and gives the certification to the ones low in FODMAP.

As a reminder, FODMAP is an acronym that stands for Fermentable, Oligosaccharide, Disaccharide, Monosaccharide and Polyols. These fermentable sugars are poorly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract and so easily and quickly fermented by gut bacteria, causing IBS manifestations (gas, bloating and discomfort).

People requiring a low FODMAP diet are 15 times more common than people requiring a gluten-free diet. Developed by researchers at Monash University, in Australia, the low FODMAP diet is scientifically proven to be the most effective dietary approach for people with digestive disorders or symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Dietary fibres are essential for a healthy diet. Benefits of a high-fibre diet are numerous, in particular contributing to normalised bowel movements, maintaining bowel health, controlling blood sugar and fat levels, and maintaining a healthy weight.

Nevertheless, global dietary fibres intake in still insufficient.

Fibregum is the solution to develop finished products that rich in fibre and suitable for low FODMAP diet.

Thanks to its highly branched structure, Fibregum, a FODMAP Friendly non-digestible carbohydrate, is gradually fermented from transverse colon to descending colon without generating discomfort.

Moreover, with its guaranteed minimum content of 90% fibre, Fibregum is a way to contribute to dietary fibre intake.

Fibregum is easy-to-use in a large range of applications such as bakery, cereals and bars and beverages.
