Fibers and prebiotics for supporting gut health

The objective of the study was to identify applications of soluble/insoluble fibers and prebiotics for supporting gut health/microbiome.

Dietary Fibers are naturally present in various sources like cereals, legumes, fruits, and vegetables are resistant to digestion by human enzymes, and play a physiological role in human health, such as lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, improving blood glucose, controlling in diabetes, helping with weight loss and management, and reducing cancer risk apart from maintaining gut health. While prebiotics is non-digestible short-chain carbohydrates that beneficially affect the health of the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of some groups of beneficial bacteria in the colon and act as food for beneficial microbes in the gut.

Factors such as growing environmental concerns & rise in demand for dietary fibers and prebiotics supplements are projected to drive the growth of the dietary fibers and prebiotics market.
