So, what is polydextrose?

Polydextrose is a soluble fiber that is commonly used as a low-calorie bulking agent in a variety of food products. It has a neutral taste and can be used to replace sugar or fat in recipes. Polydextrose is made from dextrose, sorbitol, and citric acid and has been shown to have prebiotic properties, which means that it can help support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. It is also low glycemic, meaning it does not cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. Polydextrose is often used in baked goods, snacks, and beverages as a way to reduce calories without sacrificing taste or texture.
