Understanding fibre fortification

Today’s health-conscious consumers are actively looking for foods and beverages that are fortified with nutrients such as fibre. Tate & Lyle offers a unique portfolio of fortification focused ingredients, providing customers a range of benefits and application possibilities. 

Our fibre ingredients provide a range of nutritional benefits such as digestive health, low glycaemic response, and calcium absorption. We know that taste is the number one purchase motivator for the majority of global consumers, so we offer soluble fibres that are easily blended into food and beverages without impacting taste, colour or texture. Our fibres also provide excellent digestive tolerance so you can enrich your products with confidence, knowing that you won’t impact consumer acceptance.

Tate & Lyle has expanded its portfolio of specialty soluble fibres and is now pleased to offer FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) and GOS (galactooligosaccharides) as part of our portfolio. These products have been added to the portfolio as a result of the recent acquisition of Quantum Hi-Tech (China) Biological Co., Ltd (Quantum or QHT), a leading dietary fibre business located in China.

This portfolio expansion will enable Tate & Lyle to offer a broader range of speciality soluble dietary fibres, which complement our existing corn-based portfolio. These new lines provide an excellent formulation opportunity to work alongside our existing PROMITOR® and STALITE® fibres to create new fibre, texture and tolerance solutions.

The FOS and GOS products expand our array of soluble dietary fibres that are recognized as prebiotics*. FOS is found naturally in many plants, low in calories, provides a sweet taste and is easy to process. GOS is a chain of galactose sugars that is generally derived from lactose. Both product lines will provide additional fortification and alternative sweetener options across a wider set of categories including beverages, bakery, dairy, nutrition and infant milk formula.

FOS (Fructooligosaccharides)

The FOS (fructooligosaccharides) line of products is a type of carbohydrate composed of short fructose chains found naturally in many plants. It is nondigestible in nature, low in calories, and is recognized as a soluble dietary fibre and a prebiotic* because of its health benefits and taste.

FOS has superior functionality and processing attributes including low heat and acid stability. FOS is complementary to the PROMITOR® and STA-LITE® lines creating opportunities for new fibre, texture and tolerance solutions.

GOS (galactooligosaccharides)

The GOS (galactooligosaccharides) line of products is a chain of galactose sugars that is generally derived from lactose. It is nondigestible in nature and recognized as a prebiotic*. GOS can be applied in functional foods, dairy products, milk powders and complementary food for young children. FOS is often applied as key soluble fibre in infant milk formula and increasingly in nutrition, baby food, yoghurts. FOS is stable at high temperatures and pH during processing.
