So, what is polydextroses?

Polydextrose is a soluble dietary fiber that is commonly used as a low-calorie bulking agent and sugar substitute in a variety of food products. It is made from dextrose, sorbitol, and citric acid, and has a neutral taste and odor. Polydextrose is resistant to digestion in the small intestine, which means that it passes through the digestive system without being metabolized for energy. This makes it an ideal ingredient for people looking to reduce their calorie intake while still enjoying the texture and mouthfeel of their favorite foods. Additionally, polydextrose has been shown to have prebiotic effects, promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
