So, what is polydextros?

Polydextrose is a low-calorie, soluble fiber that is commonly used as a food ingredient to replace sugar or fat. It is made by combining dextrose (a simple sugar) with sorbitol and citric acid, and then polymerizing the mixture. Despite its sweet taste, it has a low glycemic index, making it a suitable option for individuals with diabetes or those looking to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Polydextrose is also non-cariogenic, meaning it does not contribute to tooth decay. Additionally, it may help improve gut health by acting as a prebiotic and stimulating the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system.
