Dietary fibre plays a key role in human health; fibre-rich foods and prebiotics can help promote gut health and benefit the gut microbiota, for instance. Adding fibre to foods and ingredients can thus help increase their attractiveness to consumers, and differentiate them in a competitive market.

Petra Scholtens, Project team leader Nutrition & Health at NIZO, explains how in vitro models and human trials, supported by bioinformatics, can help manufacturers identify and demonstrate the health benefits of dietary fibres.
