The IOM advice is joined by means of these from a number of executive public overall healthiness businesses that advertise elevated fiber intake, yet a Read more...

If we are not to lose momentum toward a global standard, we need to consider classifying the potential beneficial physiological effects according to the evidence available and move toward defining criteria for the purpose of compliance. 1 Which Fibers Need to “Prove” a Beneficial Physiological Effect? The Codex definition identifies three categories of DFs: 1. Naturally occurring in the food as consumed 2. Obtained from food raw material by physical, enzymatic, or chemical means 3. Synthetic carbohydrate polymers The last two categories are required to prove a beneficial physiological effect.

8 Nutrition Information Requirements. Health Canada. (1997). Guideline concerning the safety and physiological effects of novel fiber sources and food products containing them. Food directorate health protection branch, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. ILSI. (2006). International Life Science Institute. ILSI Europe concise monograph series; Dietary Fiber, Brussels, Belgium. IOM. (2001). Institute of Medicine. Dietary Reference Intakes: Proposed Definition of Dietary Fiber. National Academies Press, Washington, DC.

Establishing a core list that leaves room for the addition of others, as and when their physiological benefits are substantiated, would therefore seem a sensible place to start, and this was further debated during the symposium in part 2 of this session. 1 Moving from Definition to Practice A key aspect to the effective implementation of the Codex definition is consensus on methodology to support the definition and thereby to validate labeling declarations and claims. The relationship between the methodology, specifically its capability or not to measure fiber on the basis of chain length alone (the DP issue), and the development of a validated procedure to combine AOAC methods accurately to determine TDF is an issue that requires further consideration to support a global standard.
