Soluble Fiber and Prebiotic Fiber
The fiber in ChocoMint DF Bar case* helps promote satiety (a feeling of fullness) by slowing the emptying of the stomach, which may aid in appetite regulation. Soluble fiber also supports regularity by drawing water into the colon, which helps increase stool bulk and may potentially increase stool frequency. The inulin and tapioca fiber in this bar are “prebiotic” fibers, meaning that they serve as a food source for probiotics—the friendly, health-promoting bacteria that reside the in the large intestine (also called the “gut flora”).
ChocoMint DF Bar case* is sweetened with the natural herb stevia and small amounts of erythritol, glycerin and tapioca syrup, but the predominant sweetener is allulose. These sweetening agents have a minimal impact on blood sugar and insulin and should not result in the GI upset some people experience when consuming commonly used sugar alcohols.
A Note About Allulose
Allulose is a rare sugar found naturally in figs, raisins, jackfruit and maple syrup. Allulose has some unique
characteristics which put it in a class all by itself. Humans lack the enzymes to digest allulose, so it’s largely
excreted from the body, but without the unpleasant GI effects associated with certain sugar alcohols.
The FDA recognizes that allulose has a chemical structure similar to other sugars, yet since it is not metabolized by the body in the same way as most sugars it does not contribute the same number of calories. In fact, it has just 1/10th the calories of sucrose (sugar)—only 0.4 calories/gram! Because of its unique traits, the FDA requires allulose to be listed as part of the Total Carbohydrate on food labels, but not as a sugar, and thus it can be subtracted from the “Net Carbohydrates” when considering its impact to the consumer. Allulose is an ideal sweetener for anyone looking to minimize sugar intake, as it has no impact on blood glucose or insulin levels when consumed in reasonable amounts.
