Digestive health is considered one of the most important aspects for maintaining overall well-being. 70% of global consumers are interested in products that can improve their health (source: FMCG). Along with this, a healthy gut positively impacts people’s immune systems and mental health, and plays a key role in preventing illness. Consumer awareness of digestive health has been growing for years, in turn driving demand for food and beverages with corresponding claims.
However, there is a disconnect between what consumers know in theory and what they choose to consume in practice. For example, consumers recognise that fibre is an ingredient that is good for the gut, yet population-wide research shows a clear “fibre gap”.

The assessment of the GutHealthHERO Baobab demonstrated its prebiotic fibre properties at a dosage of as little as 4g per day, supporting both digestive health and holistic well-being. Acid stable, the product offers great potential to boost premium health applications.

GutHealthHERO Prebiotic Topinambur is an organic fruit juice powder derived from the topinambur tuber and enriched by lactic acid fermentation. Topinambur, also known as Jerusalem artichoke, is native to North America and a member of the Asteraceae family. It forms potato-like tubers at the roots, which are traditionally used as food, and has recently enjoyed a renaissance in modern cuisine. The tuber naturally contains many nutrients, of which the most popular one is inulin. Doehler’s organic juice powder is characterized by its nutrient-rich composition and high prebiotic fibre content, with a natural inulin amount of >60%. The gently processed product is the perfect clean label solution, adding prebiotic fibres in their most natural form and providing a pleasant mouthfeel to leading next-level health applications.
