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:

  2. Its sugar is still very low, so it can meet all the requirements and it is functional.
  3. 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.
