Dietary fibre is connected to many health benefits, but its intake is below recommendations. The definition of dietary fibre, recently extensively discussed again, includes many types of non-digestible poly- and oligosaccharides.

New ingredients entering the market are tailored for specific applications such as beverages or snack products.
