A New Tate & Lyle Study Reveals the Health Benefits of Soluble Corn Fiber DECATUR, Ill., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- After months -- maybe even years -- of nurturing a love/hate relationship with excess pounds, a new study commissioned by Tate & Lyle, the manufacturer of PROMITOR(TM) Soluble Corn Fiber and PROMITOR(TM) Resistant Starch, http://www.promitorfiber.com, finds that people may consume less calories while continuing to eat their favorite foods. This study, led by researchers at the University of Toronto's Department of Nutritional Sciences, reports that products manufactured with either PROMITOR(TM) Soluble Corn Fiber or PROMITOR(TM) Resistant Starch have been found to produce lower glycemic and insulin responses. The lower responses may help to prevent the roller coaster of sugar spikes and crashes, which could lead to improved weight management and better blood glucose control, especially for those battling diabetes. "Modern western diets are typically low in fiber and nutrient poor, but are energy dense," says Cyril WC Kendall, Ph.D., Research Associate, University of Toronto. "As a low-calorie ingredient, soluble corn fiber may aid in weight and disease management by helping to control post-meal glucose and insulin spikes." The study's results were published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in December 2008.
