Promitor Approved as a Dietary Fiber in Canada

August 8, 2013

Tate & Lyle’s soluble corn fiber product is the latest in a list of approvals.

Health Canada has granted Tate & Lyle (London) an approval to use Promitor Soluble Corn Fiber 70 and 85 as sources of dietary fiber.

Corn-based Promitor is low in viscosity and is processing, heat, and pH-stable so it can be added to a variety of applications including fruit drinks, meal replacements, bars, cereal, snacks, and dairy. What’s more, it can be used in formulations where sugar or caloric reduction is desired without impacting taste and texture. Promitor fibers also have a low caloric content (2 kcal/gram).

The approval follows Health Canada’s 2012 approval the Tate & Lyle’s Sta-Lite Polydextrose fiber product.
