Fibre Syrup

Fibre Syrup is a sweet syrup made  of a plant fiber called isomalto-oligosaccharide (IMO syrup). We call it Fibre Syrup, and the product comes in two versions:

Fibre Syrup Clear is a versatile baking ingredient that can be used both as a sweetener and to give your cookies and biscuits a soft centre and crispy crust. Fibre Syrup Clear works especially well as an ingredient in home-baked bars. Fibre Syrup Clear is 60% as sweet as sugar.

Fibre Syrup Gold has a small amount of malt extract and stevia added, has a darker colour and a fuller sweet taste. Fibre Syrup Gold is ideal on pancakes, ice cream and desserts. Sweetness ratio 1:1.

Fibre Syrup and diabetes

Experience has shown that Fibre Syrup can be digested differently from person to person. For many people, the majority of Fibre Syrup acts like fibre in the body, while for some people it appears that a portion of the fibre can cause the blood sugar to rise. We therefore recommend people with diabetes to be careful when using Fibre Syrup, and expect an impact on blood sugar levels. The blood sugar rise should be lower than for regular syrup and sugar, but may be higher than what one would expect from a product with such a low sugar and high fibre content. Unfortunately, we don’t have sufficient documentation to give an exact GI value yet.
