Join your brand to the gut microbiome revolution

The global trend of incorporating prebiotic fibers into food and nutritional products is growing as consumers become more aware of their benefits for example in digestive health. Moreover, with the rising awareness of the microbiome, more consumers have heard about prebiotics. According to FMCG Guru, a healthy microbiome is associated with an improved digestive health by 79% of global consumers and with an improved immune health by 74% of global consumers.

However, fibers are often associated with a negative perception: 40% of consumers have experienced side effects while consuming prebiotics in nutritional supplements. Nexira has demonstrated that Acacia fiber inavea™ is a gentle fiber, slowly fermented in the colon. It is highly tolerated, even by IBS people. According to NBJ, consumers are concerned about the quality of ingredients and the transparency on the ingredient sourcing. 63% are interested in natural claims. Even if fibers are generally associated with a healthy and natural perception, this is not always the case. Inavea™ range is all-natural, minimally processed, with no chemical. For fiber enrichment, it can be simply labeled as dietary fiber or acacia fiber. A very easy and simple labeling, clear for the consumer.

Moreover, it is already difficult for the consumer to meet the fiber recommendations via traditional foods. This is why innovative high-fiber fortified products may help them to increase their fiber intakes. Again, manufacturers of finished products and ingredient suppliers have an important role: they are here to support the consumer and help him to achieve a balance diet.

A lot of manufacturers already use common and well-known fibers in their formulations. However, for a well-balanced and diversified diet, consuming different type of fibers is important. According to NBJ, functional beverages is the main market category of the functional food and beverage market, with 75% of sales. According to FMCG Guru, 50% of consumers are more likely to turn to fortified and functional drinks among all the available formats. This is something that we have observed with our prebiotic acacia fiber. Lot of NPD were done in functional beverages, such as prebiotic carbonated drinks, in nutritional powders or in bars, such as high-protein bars.
