NUTRAFLORA Prebiotic Fiber Approved by Health Canada



Ingredion Incorporated, Westchester, IL, has been approved by Health Canada, the federal department responsible for helping Canadians maintain and improve their health, for its NUTRAFLORA prebiotic fiber. This recent approval is a part of Health Canada’s revised Fibre Policy for Labeling and Advertising of Dietary Fibre-Containing Food Products, introduced in February 2012. The approval allows for NUTRAFLORA prebiotic fiber, a short-chain fructooligosaccharide (scFOS), to be declared as a fiber source in food products as permitted by the Food and Drug Regulations. NUTRAFLORA has long been declared a dietary fiber in the U.S. and its numerous health benefits have been validated by more than 200 scientific publications.
