How resistant dextrin is beneficial to your gut health?
1. The resistant dextrin is a prebiotic product which can stimulate the proliferation of beneficial intestinal bacteria such as bifidobacterium, lactobacilli so as to increase your gut health.
2. The resistant dextrincan regulate the PH of intestine, improving the breeding environment of beneficial bacteria, and promoting intestinal peristalsis and therefore reducing the constipation.
More and more consumers are aware of the benefits of gut health, such as increased immunity, promotion of nutrient absorption, weight management, and enhanced metabolism.
In China, resistant dextrin was identified as a prebiotic product by the “Public Nutrition Improvement Microecological Project” at the end of 2008.
Then what are probiotics and prebiotics?
Probiotics and prebiotics are both pretty big topics in nutrition these days. Yet even though they sound similar, the two play different roles in your health.
1. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, such as bifidobacterium, lactobacilli. These are live bacteria found in certain foods or supplements. They can provide numerous health benefits.
2. Prebiotics are food for these bacteria. These substances come from types of carbs (mostly fiber) that humans can’t digest. The beneficial bacteria in your gut eat this fiber.
Resistant dextrin can’t be digested by the digestive enzymes in the human body. It is helpful to promoting the growth and reproduction of gastrointestinal probiotics.
Examples of resistant dextrin’s benefits to gut health in different applications such as dairy products, infant food and health care products
1. When applied in the dairy products, the resistant dextrin is helpful to be activated with lactobacilli, bifidobacterial and other benefical gut bacteria to make the better effect.
2. When applied in infant food, the resistant dextrin can reinforce the bifidobaterium, which is useful to increase the nutrient utilization and absorption of micronutrient of infants.
3. When applied in health care products, the resistant dextrin can stimulate the proliferation of intestinal bifidobacterium, lactobacillus and other beneficial bacteria.
