Grain fibre: How to deliver the health benefits

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle in a proceedings journalScientificpeer-review

Abstract

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. Cereal fibre and whole grain products have in many epidemiological studies been shown to be especially protective against diseases related to metabolic syndrome. However, due to the technological limitations, traditional bran products onften fail to exploit the potential in grain fibre. New ingredients entering the market are tailored for specific applications such as beverages or snack products.
