The Science

Why is TuttiFoodi better than other alternatives? Of course it’s completely natural, tasty and has positive impact, but why is it good for you? Here’s the science behind what we do.

All natural goodness
Because we take the moisture out of our produce at low temperatures and not at extreme temperature differences, like with spray- or freeze drying, we get to keep all the natural goodness inside. Where it ‘s supposed to be. This way we get to keep almost all vitamins and fibres on board.

No preservative badness
During our production process no artificial preservatives are used. The fibre we add takes care of all of that. The new generation of long lasting fresh, as we like to call it, has a shelf-life of about 2 years, so it’s ready for you whenever you are.

Fibres are good for your digestion. But according to research 9 out of 10 people do not consume enough of them. Our Daily Fruit & Fibre Mix is rich in fibres. Not only do we keep almost all naturally present fibres that nature has grown, unlike many fruit juices, but on top of that we also add another natural food fibre.

How much fibre do you need?
You’re recommended to consume about 30-40 grams per day, but it differs per age and sex:

Types of foods with fibre
Fibre can be naturally found in products like; whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans.

There’s no naturally present fibre in meat, fish, dairy, or sugar. And do you like white bread, regular Italian pasta, white rice, cookies and pastries? Most of these refined food usually have had most of their fibres removed.
So, are you a big fan of these kinds of products? Then a little help with your fibre intake might not be such a bad idea.

The scientific benefits

  1. High Fibre Content (85% approx – AOAC 2001-03 method):
    • 75% progressively fermented
    • 10% excreted
  2. Low in calories (no added sugar)
    • 2 kcal/g
  3. High digestive tolerance
    • Clinically proven both in short and long term (up to 45 g /day)
  4. Pre-biotic fibre and Low Glycemic response
    • Conclusion based on a serie of convergent nutritional studies of which: from 8 g /day: increase of Bacteroides; from 8 g /day: decrease of cl. perfringens
    • Increase of Short Chain Fatty Acids: propionate, acetate, butyrate
    • Increase in breath hydrogen excretion
    • Decrease in the fecal pH
  5. Weight management (satiety effect)
    • Conclusion based on a series of convergent nutritional studies. 8-14 g /day of our fibre significantly helps modulate satiety.
