A calorie shift

International Fiber Corporation is committed to helping the food industry reach its goal of cutting trillions of calories from food products by 2015 in order to reduce childhood obesity. While we realize that childhood obesity is not a problem that will be solved with a single solution, we believe we can give manufacturers a headstart - attacking it one calorie at a time. Every calorie counts and adding insoluble fiber to foods lets you begin reducing calories. It's a straightforward approach to caloric reduction, which brings with it the natural health benefits of fiber.

Why insoluble fiber?

Insoluble fiber-like IFC's Solka-Floc® and JustFiber®-is made up of parts of plant matter that our bodies can't digest or absorb. Since our bodies can't digest it, insoluble fiber essentially has no calories. While insoluble fiber may not have any calories, it does possess many health benefits and is a key nutritional component of a healthy diet. Despite this, consumers often find it hard to get the recommended amounts of fiber in their daily diet, which is another good reason to add fiber to reduce calories.

IFC offers a full range of insoluble dietary fiber for food applications under these trusted brand names:
