IMO Fiber is a mixture of short-chain carbohydrates and has a digestion-resistant property. Isomaltooligosaccharides are a normal part of the human diet and occur naturally in fermented foods – such as rice miso, soy sauce, and sake. IMO can be a sweet-tasting (high-density) syrup or spray-dried into powder form.
IMO is a multi-functional molecule that, in some studies, has shown to exert positive effects on human digestive health.
We supply IMO in USDA/EU certified and Conventional types.
-Isomaltooligosaccharide is difficult to be digested by gastric enzymes, has low sweetness and low calorie, and basically does not increase blood sugar and blood lipids
-Isomaltooligosaccharides can promote the proliferation of bifidobacteria in the intestine
-caries prevention function
-Isomalt oligosaccharides are non-digestible oligosaccharides with the function of water-soluble dietary fiber
-Diabetics can also eat
Isomalt is different from maltose
Isomalt is called isomalt to distinguish it from maltose. Generally, maltose is easily fermented by yeast, but isomaltose is not fermented by yeast, and isomaltose is a non-fermentable oligosaccharide. Isomalt oligosaccharide can effectively promote the growth and reproduction of beneficial bacteria in the human body – bifidobacteria, so it is also called “bifidobacterium growth-promoting factor”, referred to as “bifidobacteria factor”. After years of clinical and practical applications, it has been shown that bifidobacteria have many health care functions, and isomalt oligosaccharide as a promoting factor of bifidobacteria has naturally attracted people’s attention.
