KiOFiber - the multitasking fibre
Digestive health: KitoZyme launches a new unique and natural fibre supplement product based on the patented and clinically proven KiOtransine® technology
KiOFiber is a new fibre supplement from KitoZyme based on the unique KiOtransine® - non-animal Chitin-Glucan. Chitin-Glucan is a novel patented ingredient of fungal origin that combines two types of polysaccharide chains that are linked covalently in a three dimensional structure.
Intended for use as a daily fibre supplement, KiOFiber features the benefits of both soluble and insoluble fibres. Thanks to its gelling properties, KiOFiber helps maintain a healthy and balanced gut microbiota and promotes digestive wellness leading to an overall feeling of wellbeing. In addition, KiOFiber supports clean healthy arteries and reduces oxidised LDL-cholesterol.
KiOFiber is particularly well tolerated and has also shown good results on IBS patients proven by clinical trials - see the figure below. Furthermore, it is appropriate for use in Kosher, Halal and vegetarian products/diets.
The recommended dosage is 1.5 g per serving taken 3 times a day.
Solutions suited to your needs
KitoZyme offers KiOFiber as finished products in different galenical forms: capsules, film coated tablets, sticks and powder, and as ingredient for integration into your recipes (KiOFiber is heat resistant). KiOFiber comes in the following different tastes:

KiOFiber vs Psyllium/HUSK

• The daily dosage for KiOFiber is significantly lower than for Psyllium
• Psyllium forms a very viscous and slimy substance in few minutes, which is less pronounced for KiOFiber
