UK-based Tate & Lyle has applied for a health claim for polydextrose and improved bowel function.

According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the article 13.5 claim reads: “Polydextrose contributes to an improved bowel function by increasing stool bulk.”

The multinational agribusiness specialises in sugar-based food ingredients and produces a polydextrose called STA-LITE. 

The low-calorie bulking agent can be used in bakery, cereals, dairy deserts, fruit fillings, flavoured water, ice-cream, juice drinks, ketchups, snacks and sauces to help replace sugar at one kcal per gram. 

The firm promotes polydextrose as a low glycaemic response soluble fibre with prebiotic properties.
