Frequently Asked Questions
What is FiberWorks®?
FiberWorks® is a newly customized resistant dextrin that contains 90% dietary fiber, used as a binder and sugar replacer in many applications. Unlike other resistant dextrin syrups, FiberWorks® syrup has unique water activity control, texture enhancing properties, pleasant sweetness profile and is free flowing.
What's the advantage of using FiberWorks®?
Fiberworks® is mostly used in keto/diet/healthier bars because it doesn’t spike insulin levels and has only 1.4% natural sugar from the fibre (which is glucose and maltose, no fructose). Fiberworks® is accepted globally as a true dietary fibre source. Fiberworks® does not have any negative impact on the stomach.
How is FiberWorks® labeled?
Fiberworks® is labeled as soluble tapioca fiber.
How is FiberWorks® compared to standard resistant dextrin?
Traditionally, resistant dextrins have some formulation issues and are not as sweet as IMO, Fiberworks® is a custom soluble tapioca fibre syrup which has rectified the issues.
How long is FiberWorks®'s shelf life?
Fiberworks® syrup has a shelf life of two years at ambient temperature, while Fiberworks® powder, three years.
Can I label my product with “no added sugar” using FiberWorks®?
Using FiberWorks® in your product definitely meets no added sugar as FiberWorks® is fibre, the little sugar that is in these syrups are just natural sugars, like the sugar in a carrot or spinach.
Most importantly FiberWorks® is clean label and not sugar alcohols. We do not recommend sugar alcohols to achieve no/low sugar in your product. The sugar alcohols are not good on the labels and create stomach issues for the consumers. Most of our work with FiberWorks® is getting brands off sugar alcohols and they seem to thrive after that.
How much should we use FiberWorks® in a healthy bar?
Fiberworks® , for your bar's bulk/body, is commonly used from 10% to 30% depending on the formula of your bar.
What ingredients should I use for binding to mimic sugar in a crunchy bar?
For binding to mimic sugar in crunchy bars we recommend Fiberworks® syrup which will work extremely well. Fiberworks® has zero stomach discomfort, and it’s sweetness is perfect and we have managed the aw & viscosity very well on this syrup. And FiberWorks®’s binding performance is very high.
I want to launch a keto/diet/health bar, what are the best functional ingredients to help achieve it?
Many brands use our ingredients to achieve higher health ratings and to achieve the brand claims, whilst driving functionally and quality.
If you are aiming to create a type of keto/diet/health bar, we recommend the following -
- For your bar's bulk/body, Fiberworks® or MetaSweet® , commonly used from 10% to 30% of the bar.
- Now moving onto further improving on the functionality and eating quality of the bar, CapMoist® is really a stellar multi-functional product in your application. You would use approx. 2-5% approximately.
- Another amazing product is FlaxSmooth® powder, it contains zero sugar and the dosage is approx. 0.4%.
What's the difference between FiberWorks® and MetaSweet® ?
Fiberworks® is a custom soluble tapioca fibre syrup which is based on dietary fibre, with a very high fibre content over 90% on a dry basis.
Fiberworks® is mostly used in keto/diet/healthier bars because it doesn’t spike insulin levels and has only 1.4% natural sugar from the fibre (which is glucose and maltose, no fructose).
Fiberworks® is not an IMO and only Fiberworks® is accepted globally as a true dietary fibre source. 90% of bars in the US use Fiberworks® , in Australia more and more brands are slowly catching on and choosing it over IMO. Fiberworks® does not have any negative impact on the stomach.
Metasweet® is an IMO prebiotic syrup, available in tapioca or corn. It is a prebiotic fibre and the natural sugar source from the fibre ranges from 4% to 7%. MetaSweet® is the most common fibre syrup used throughout Australia for 3 main reasons:
- It is a little cheaper than Fiberworks® .
- Its sugar is still very low, so it can meet all the requirements and it is functional.
- Unlike the rest of the world, in Australia & N.Z, you can label IMO as “soluble tapioca fibre” and it is acknowledged as a source of prebiotic fibre in Australia and N.Z. So if you are operating in Australia and want to use a prebiotic fibre, Metasweet® is a great choice and it also has no negative impact on the stomach. However, if you are focusing on keto/diet/diabetic then Fiberworks® is the best choice.
