Create winning products with low FODMAP ingredients  

Consumers are looking for foods that taste great and are easy to digest. But many snack foods (baked goods, cereals and bars) are high in certain short-chain carbohydrates called FODMAPs, which can trigger occasional digestive discomfort. FODMAP is an acronym that stands for:

  • Fermentable
  • Oligosaccharides
  • Disaccharides
  • Monosaccharides
  • And
  • Polyols

With Ingredion’s Monash University Low FODMAP Certified ingredients, NOVELOSE® 3490 and VERSAFIBE1490 dietary fibers, you can deliver just-right taste, texture, and even lower calories in fiber-rich baked goods, tortillas, cereal and bars. Both helping to bring more fiber to consumers who follow a low FODMAP diet* — without negatively impacting sensory appeal. And if you’re looking for a plant-based Low FODMAP Certified ingredient for your formulating needs, VITESSENCE® Pulse protein isolate is a great option to consider.

A digestive health portfolio at the cutting edge

While home remedies were the answer to digestive ailments for centuries, today’s consumers turn to fibers to make digestion easier and help restore digestive balance. Choosing the right fiber can help bring consumers all the digestive health benefits of fiber — without the discomfort — while helping them meet their daily fiber requirements. When you work with Ingredion, your business is our business.
