Tate & Lyle has introduced PROMITOR soluble corn fiber. The new fiber, which initially will be sold in the United States, will help manufacturers add fiber to foods such as snacks, soups, dressings, jams and dairy products. The prebiotic, well-tolerated fiber dissolves clear in applications, can be used to replace traditional sweeteners, and has a low glycemic response.
