Resistant dextrin, a soluble dietary substance, is largely resistant to digestion in the small intestine and is fermented primarily in the colon.
Resistant dextrin powder is officially recognized and labeled as a soluble fiber in many countries, including China. In addition, accumulating evidence shows that resistant dextrins can be part of a balanced diet to promote health, such as reducing blood sugar response and improving intestinal health. Its digestive tolerance threshold is also very prominent, making the amount it digests optimally suited to achieve the desired benign changes in the gut ecosystem.
Additionally, as a fully soluble fiber, it is well tolerated in extreme temperature and handling conditions and ingested, making it an ideal ingredient for enhancing the fiber content of foods and beverages.
Functional properties of EU stock resistant dextrins:
Resistant dextrin firber can delay and inhibit the absorption and digestion of carbohydrates in the small intestine, because resistant dextrin is water-soluble and can form a gel to prevent the diffusion and absorption of carbohydrates in the intestine.
2. Reduce fat absorption
Dietary fiber is known as the seventh largest nutrient in the human body. It has a feeling of fullness, a low glycemic index, and can help clean the intestinal tract. At present, many beverages are added with dietary fiber such as resistant dextrin. Resistant dextrin can also absorb bile acid, fat, etc. to reduce its absorption rate, lower blood fat, and improve lipid metabolism in patients with various types of hyperlipidemia.
