New research underscores the health benefits of fibers, including bone health
Date:4/23/2012

Chicago (April 23, 2012) For years, fiber intake among the global population has been extremely low, setting the stage for potentially serious, long-term public health implications.(1) New research commissioned by Tate & Lyle and presented at the 2012 Experimental Biology conference in San Diego adds to the body of emerging research on fibers, including additional support for the role of soluble corn fiber in bone health.

"Years of research point to the health benefits of fiber for cardiovascular health, blood glucose control, digestion and gut health, yet average intake is approximately half the recommended amount," said Joanne Slavin, PhD, RD, of the University of Minnesota and a member of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee. "With more than 90 percent of adults and children falling short of meeting their daily fiber recommendations, the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans classified fiber as a nutrient of concern, since it's one of the critical nutrients most lacking in people's diets."

The three studies on PROMITOR Soluble Corn Fiber and STA-LITE Polydextrose were supported by Tate & Lyle, the global provider of specialty food ingredients. These fibers have been shown to have positive health benefits similar to and beyond those demonstrated for naturally-occurring intact fibers.

"The area of fiber research is expanding with new discoveries for the role of fiber, such as helping boost calcium absorption in adolescents, an age group in which calcium intake is vitally important for a lifetime of bone health," said Connie Weaver, PhD, of Purdue University and a lead researcher in the fiber and calcium study. "Since people aren't meeting their fiber goals with the foods they currently eat, adding fibers to foods is a realistic and simple way to address this global public health concern."

The following are summaries of the three fiber studies:
