WHITE PAPER – Fill the Fiber Gap with inavea™

Why You Should Use Prebiotic Acacia Fiber

In our Western diets, increased production of processed foods have led to a shift in dietary patterns. People are now consuming more foods high in energy, fats, and sugars, and many people do not eat enough fruit, vegetables, and other dietary fiber. This unbalanced nutrition could lead to some diseases and troubles.

As it is difficult to meet the fiber recommendations via traditional foods, innovative high-fiber fortified products may help consumers to increase their fiber intakes.

All-natural, organic, and Non-GMO Project Verified, inavea™ PURE ACACIA is the Best-in-Class Acacia Fiber on the market with several unique selling points and significant advantages. Discover Nexira’s fabulous prebiotic acacia fiber in our NEW White Paper!

Fabulous Prebiotic Acacia Fiber,
The New White Paper by Nexira

This white paper shows the excellent tolerance of inavea™ prebiotic acacia. This tolerance is notably due to the slow fermentation of acacia fiber by the gut microbiota. This gradual fermentation and high tolerability make acacia a very powerful tool to increase dietary fiber content, even for people suffering from high digestive discomfort such as IBS. When inavea™ PURE ACACIA was administered, there was an increase in overall levels of healthy bacteria, improving the gut microbiota and increasing diversity. Consumption of inavea™ PURE ACACIA helps to improve intestinal well-being and overall gut health.

Why Should we Eat Fibers?

The notion of good dietary habits deals with the maintenance of good health through balanced nutrition. Conversely, unbalanced nutrition and poor dietary habits could lead to diseases and other troubles.

According to the World Health Organization, consuming a healthy diet throughout one’s lifetime can help to prevent a range of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and conditions, as well as provide digestive benefits. However, increased production of processed foods, rapid urbanization and changing lifestyles have led to a shift in dietary patterns. People are now consuming more foods high in energy, fats, free sugars and salt [sodium]. Many people do not eat enough fruit, vegetables, and other dietary fiber such as whole grains.

The advantages of a diet rich in fiber relate to the digestive process and a healthier intestinal tract. A healthy digestive system is characterized by its ability to efficiently process nutrients, to properly nourish the entire organism.

According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the adequate intake for fiber is 25 g per day for women and 30 g per day for men (USDA, 2020). However, more than 90% of American do not meet recommended intakes for dietary fiber.

This is commonly known as the FIBER GAP.
