Sukrin Fibre Syrup
Fibre Syrup is a sweet syrup made with beneficial prebiotic fibre that both tastes and does good for the entire body. It is made of a plant fiber called isomalto-oligosaccharide (IMO syrup). We call it Fibre Syrup, and the product comes in two versions:
Fibre Syrup Clear is a versatile baking ingredient that can be used both as a sweetener and to give your cookies and biscuits a soft centre and crispy crust. Fibre Syrup Clear works especially well as an amazing ingredient in home-baked bars, as it provides sweetness, a perfectly smooth consistency and a good source of fibre. Fibre Syrup Clear is 60% as sweet as sugar.
Fibre Syrup Gold has a small amount of malt extract and stevia added, has a darker colour and a fuller sweet taste. Fibre Syrup Gold is a healthier alternative to honey and syrup, and is ideal on pancakes, ice cream and desserts. Sweetness ratio 1:1.
- Almost 70 g fiber and only 5 g of sugars per 100g
- A healthy substitute for syrup and honey
- Perfect in homemade bars
Ingredients - Isomaltooligosaccharides
Isomaltooligosaccharide is a naturally-occurring prebiotic plant fibre found naturally in foods such as honey, miso, soy sauce and sake. It has a sweet taste, but behaves like fibre in the body. Instead of increasing blood sugar like ordinary syrup, isomalto-oligosaccharide becomes a food source for the beneficial bacteria of the digestive system. This is known as prebiotic fibre. The body contains more bacteria than cells, and these bacteria have an important role. Eating prebiotic fibre stimulates beneficial bacteria, which perform important functions in the body, while also helping to suppress more harmful bacteria.
All types of fibre can provide temporary ailments in the digestion system, such as gas and diarrhea, but IMO fibre has proved to give hardly any of these symptoms
Fibre Syrup and Diabetes
Experience has shown that Fibre Syrup can be digested differently from person to person. For many people, the majority of Fibre Syrup acts like fibre in the body, while for some people it appears that a portion of the fibre can cause the blood sugar to rise. We therefore recommend people with diabetes to be careful when using Fibre Syrup, as it may have an impact on blood sugar levels. The blood sugar rise should be lower than for regular syrup and sugar but may be higher than what one would expect from a product with such a low sugar and high fibre content. Unfortunately, we don’t have sufficient documentation to give an exact GI value.
