1. What are the dietary fiber included in OKCHEM Global Distribution Project?
Our resistant starch is a kind of natural small molecule water-soluble dietary fiber obtained from corn starch emulsion after enzymatic hydrolysis, fibrosis, purification and drying. It is a kind of white or light yellow powder, colorless or light yellow liquid, containing a large number of starch cross-linking bonds, and will not be hydrolyzed by human digestive enzymes.
Product Name: Resistant Dextrin
CAS No.: 9004-53-9
Other names: Food Grade Resistant Dextrin; Soluble Corn Fiber (SCF); small molecule water-soluble dietary fiber
2. What are soluble fiber and insoluble fiber?
Dietary fiber is the portion of food that cannot be digested by our bodies. Actually, dietary fibre can be divided into two types: soluble and insoluble fibre.
Soluble fiber easily dissolves in water and is broken down into a gel-like substance in the part of the gut known as the colon.
Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and is left intact as food moves through the gastrointestinal tract.
3. What are the main facts of soluble and insoluble fiber?
- Soluble and insoluble are the two main types of fiber. Many fiber-rich foods contain some of both.
- Both forms of fiber have health benefits.
- Humans have been using fiber as a dietary aid since ancient times.
- In a society built on refined carbohydrates, or white breads, pastas, and sugar sweeteners, getting enough fiber can take effort.
4. What are the general benefits of soluble and insoluble fiber?
The health benefits of dietary fiber are plentiful. Some of the main ones are listed here.
- Lowering fat absorption and helping weight management
- Lowering cholesterol
- Stabilizing blood sugar (glucose) levels
- Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease
- Feeding healthy gut bacteria
