OptiBiotix Health (York, UK) has launched SnackSmart Fruit & Fiber Gummies as part of a new range of healthy and functional snack products that support digestive health and weight management. The gummies come in an apple and strawberry flavor, contain no added sugar, and provide 40% (12 grams) of adults’ recommended daily intake of fiber. The ingredient also supports satiety with the inclusion of Optibiotix proprietary SlimBiome technology.
“Our new Fibre Gummies are a delicious and great way to keep consumers fuller for longer, thanks to the inclusion of SlimBiome technology. Backed by scientific principles, the weight management ingredient features a blend of non-digestible prebiotics, dietary fibers such as glucomannan, and a trace mineral, which synergistically work in combination to stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut,” explained Steven Riley, head of online sales and marketing at OptiBiotix, in a press release. “This approach not only aids consumers by helping them steer clear of eating unhealthy snacks, but also helps to regulate the body’s insulin response to support an effective metabolic breakdown of carbohydrates and fats.”
In addition to the fiber and prebiotics in SlimBiome, SnackSmart Fibre Gummies also contain chromium to maintain blood sugar levels and chicory root fiber to contribute to normal bowel function. “With consumers keen to stay healthy to combat today’s challenges, the SnackSmart range opens up new branding opportunities for our partners across the globe,” said Frederic Narbel, PhD, managing director of the prebiotics division at OptiBiotix, in a press release. “Backed by our proprietary weight management technology, SlimBiome, the gummies are a trusted and reliable product that offer additional support to partners, particularly during these extraordinary times.”
