Health Benefits

Sunfiber promotes intestinal and colon health, aids in the transit of food through the intestines, and assists weight control by providing a satiety effect. Sunfiber promotes the absorption of essential minerals and helps the body combat increased blood glucose levels by controlling the glycemic index of foods.

Remarkable Physical and Chemical Properties

Sunfiber® is among the most adaptable of all dietary fibers. It is highly soluble in water, colorless, odorless, tasteless, and gluten free. It also features a very low viscosity, remains stable at low pH levels and is extremely resistant to high temperatures. It’s appearance is a fine white powder, and in solution is transparent. These factors make Sunfiber a superb choice for a wide range of applications, including fruit juices, carbonated and non carbonated beverages including coffee, milk and tea; as well as yogurts, creams and bakery products.

Stability of Sunfiber and three other dietary fibers in yogurts

Milk, fiber (3%) and starter yogurt (20%) were mixed and incubated at 40°C for 15 hours in aerobic conditions. Dietary fiber measurements were performed after fermentation and further repeated after one week of storage at 4°C.

Provides Solid Regularity

Usually fibers can help alleviate constipation. But Sunfiber® performs without the elusive side effects of diarrhea. Sunfiber alleviates constipation without overly degrading stool firmness, and provides regularity with healthy consistency.

Superior Absorption of Calcium and Magnesium

The majority of dietary fibers limit the absorption of essential minerals such as magnesium and calcium into the body. Sunfiber®, on the other hand, actually promotes the absorption of such encouraging minerals, ensuring the human body receives the maximum benefits from digestible foods.
