Tate & Lyle’s PROMITOR® Soluble Corn Fiber Receives Approval in Canada


Tate & Lyle, a global provider of food ingredients and solutions, has received approval for the use of PROMITOR® Soluble Corn Fiber 70 and 85 as sources of dietary fiber in Canada. The approval of PROMITOR® was based on evidence clearly demonstrating its physiologic effects and follows Health Canada’s approval in 2012 of Tate & Lyle’s STA-LITE® Polydextrose fiber product.

Tate & Lyle’s PROMITOR® Soluble Corn Fiber is available in powder and liquid forms allowing formulators to bring functional benefits of fiber fortification into a variety of food and beverages. “The recognition of PROMITOR® Soluble Corn Fiber as a dietary fiber source by Health Canada shows how the strength of Tate & Lyle’s scientific evidence demonstrates the positive health benefits of this product. We are very excited to begin offering PROMITOR® to our Canadian customers” said Courtney Kingery, Tate & Lyle North American Fiber Product Manager.

PROMITOR® is a transparent and highly soluble fiber made from corn and is known for its ease of use. It is low in viscosity and is processing, heat and pH stable making it an ideal solution to add fiber to a variety of applications including fruit drinks, meal replacements, bars, cereal, snacks and dairy.

PROMITOR® Soluble Corn Fiber offers numerous benefits to food companies and consumers. PROMITOR® can be used in formulations where sugar or caloric reduction is desired without impacting taste and texture. PROMITOR® fibers have a low caloric content (2 kcal/gram), excellent dietary tolerance and promote a healthy digestive system.

PROMITOR® Soluble Corn Fiber is the second of Tate & Lyle’s fibers to receive approval as a novel fiber source as per Health Canada’s Fiber Policy. In February 2012 Tate & Lyle’s STA-LITE® Polydextrose received approval from Health Canada as a fiber source. “With the addition of the approval for PROMITOR®, Tate & Lyle has the fiber portfolio and the technical expertise to help customers throughout the United States and Canada deliver delicious and nutritious food to consumers” said Mrs. Kingery.
