New IFST Information Statement on Dietary Fibre

We have published a new Information Statement on Dietary Fibre.

Understanding dietary fibre and using it has an important part to play in reformulating foods to address public health issues. Measuring dietary fibre for product quality control and to ensure accurate labelling as part of nutrition information is also necessary for a wide range of food.

This Information Statement aims to assist the food industry so it continues to provide attractive foods that contribute to healthy eating. It also aims to help regulators and enforcement personnel understand the issues and protect consumers and responsible businesses.

IFST’s Information Statements summarise the authoritative and impartial science behind key food science issues. They are peer-reviewed by IFST’s Scientific Committee.
