31. Soluble functional fibers with high tolerance.

Description

Fiber is a very important dietary component, however, sometimes we are not able to achieve the optimal daily recommended doses for the proper functioning of our body and its health. That’s why fiber-enriched foods are a great option. We can also find two different types of fiber, insoluble and soluble. The soluble is one that absorbs a large amount of liquid in its passage through the intestine, which slows its emptying and stimulates satiety. In addition, much of this type of fiber ferments in the large intestine or colon, acting as a prebiotic, promoting the growth of specific microbiota and improving our intestinal health.

Therefore, from Tech Transfer Agrifood we open this challenge to address the obtaining of soluble functional fibers with high tolerance from raw materials and without allergens.Fiber is a very important dietary component, however, sometimes we are not able to achieve the optimal daily recommended doses for the proper functioning of our body and its health.
