Benefiber

What are Benefiber Supplements?

Benefiber contains wheat dextrin, a natural soluble fiber.

Benefiber contains a 100% natural fiber. It's taste-free, sugar-free, dissolves completely in noncarbonated beverages and soft foods, and won't thicken.

The American Dietetic Association recommends that Americans get 20-35 grams of fiber a day from plant foods, including both soluble and insoluble fiber. However, most Americans get only half this amount. Incorporating Benefiber in a healthy diet can help ensure adequate fiber intake.

You can mix Benefiber Powder into any hot or cold beverage such as water, coffee, or juice; into soft foods such as applesauce, pudding or yogurt; or cook with it in recipes for such foods as muffins, sauces or soups, and it won't affect the taste or consistency. Benefiber Powder is not recommended for carbonated beverages. You can cook with Benefiber without altering the beneficial effects of the fiber and without changing the taste or consistency of the food.

Benefiber Powder, which contains less than 20 ppm of gluten and is therefore considered "gluten-free," based on both the FDA and the Codex Alimentarius Commission's proposed definition of less than 20 ppm. However, people who experience gluten intolerance should not consume any products, including Benefiber, that contain any level of gluten unless otherwise directed by their doctor.
