    Sunfiber® for...

    Elderly people

    The gut microbiome decreases in older people and has less diversity, which causes gastrointestinal problems such as constipation.

  • increases the growth of good gut bacteria
  • improves the balance of the microbiome
  • reduces constipation
  • reduces gastrointestinal problems in elderly people
  • Sensitive people

    Many people, especially women and children often have difficulties consuming and swallowing fiber products because they are often very dry and thick.

    Sunfiber® is easily soluble, tasteless, without increasing viscosity and very easy and convenient to consume.


    Children love to eat sweets or drink sugar-enriched products.

    Sunfiber® as a gentle fiber reduces sugar consumption by replacing carriers such as maltodextrin and brings back the beneficial effects of fiber to juices, dairy and other products.


    Sunfiber® has several health benefits that may also be relevant for athletes:

  • Activation of energy production through activation of AMPK
  • Strengthening all 5 barriers of the gut immune system
  • Optimizing the hydration status
  • Preventing reduced production of SCFA in the gut during a high-protein/low-carbohydrate diet

    Technical properties

    Sunfiber® can also be used as a technical additive for example for pressing tablets as bulking agent instead of HPMC, rice starch or maltodextrin. The advantage is the clean labelling because Sunfiber® is not a carbohydrate but a dietary fiber and it is labelled as water soluble bean fiber.

    Normally a carrier, such as maltodextrin is needed for drying juices and other herbal products. Sometimes Maltodextrin is used in high quantities up to 50-75%. Maltodextrin is a sugar that has to be labeled as carbohydrate. Beside its carrier function maltodextrin has no other health benefit or other physiological function. Sunfiber® can be used as a carrier to dry juices and supply dietary fiber with reduced caloric intake and all health benefits of dietary fiber.

    Sunfiber® can be used as agent to increase the volume of products for better homogeneity and make it easier to use small quantity raw materials.

    Sunfiber® can also be used to replace fat, starch or carbohydrates in food products. In dairy products such as yoghurt drinks Sunfiber® can be used to reduce 30% of the sugar. In flours for baking, Sunfiber® can be used to reduce 20-33% of the starch containing flour.

    Sunfiber® as polymer of 20.000 Da also has some foam stabilizing effects, that makes products creamier (more “fat-like”) and increases the mouth feeling of dairy products such as ice cream or yoghurt drinks.

    Sunfiber® can be used as an anti-caking agent for tablets, capsules and powders. Its non-hygroscopic properties inhibits the hygroscopicity of different products. Furthermore, Sunfiber® is maltodextrin free and is clean labelling. Therefore, it combines technical and nutritional benefits.
