Specialty carbohydrate for digestive health

  • Dietary fiber
  • Prebiotic properties
  • Provides just 1 kCal/g
  • Low glycemic ingredient
  • Outstanding tolerance
  • Superior functionality for sugar reduction


Litesse® polydextrose, is well established as a specialty carbohydrate for a variety of food applications. It is widely recognized and used as a fiber as well as a premium bulking ingredient for sugar and fat replacement. Litesse® helps reduce calories, sugar and lowers glycemic load while improving flavor, mouthfeel and fiber content.


Litesse® can make a positive contribution to digestive health. A range of scientific studies, including human and in vitro investigations, provides scientific support for prebiotic activity.

Findings indicate that Litesse®:

  • is not hydrolyzed by human digestive enzymes and passes intact to the colon.
  • is fermented slowly and consistently throughout the colon, thus mediating its effect in the distal colon where its impact may be the greatest.
  • enhances saccharolytic (carbohydrate) fermentation, thus reducing colonic pH.
  • selectively stimulates the growth of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.
  • enhances immune response, especially in combination with lactitol, where a synergistic effect occurs.
  • promotes the generation of short chain fatty acids including acetic, propionic and butyric, of which the latter two have specific documented health benefits.
  • enhances mineral absorption.
