"Reduce Sugar. Add Fibre. Use VitaFiber™ IMO."VitaFiber™ IMO is a natural sweetener with the functionality of a soluble dietary fibre. Confectionery, baking, beverage and more!

About

Canada’s newest low calorie functional sweetener can help with the EU’s growing sugar problem. With government mandated sugar reductions (sugar tax) or consumers seeking alternatives to their high sugar choices, VitaFiber IMO brings a healthier alternative for sugar replacement with the additional benefits of being high in fibre. Many fibres are being used as ways to reduce sugar, but they do not substitute the sweet taste (thus other ingredients must be added to compensate). VitaFiber IMO is 60% the sweetness of sucrose so it can not only provide the sweetness and fibre content, but also is a bulk filler, and provides many functionalities similar to sugar. Naturally occurring in some foods (honey), VitaFiber IMO is an isomalto-oligosaccharide that is produced from tapioca and pea starch using an enzymatic hydrolysis process. This high in fibre, low in sugar sweetener comes in both syrup and powder forms with high temperature stability and pH stability from 2-9. Whether reducing sugar in beverages, cookies, bars, or candy, VitaFiber IMO is able to replace sugar 1:1 in many applications while maintain taste, texture, mouthfeel and appearance.
