Product description

Enjoying bakery products without inconvenience in stomach

FODMAPs are poorly digestible short-chain carbohydrates that can cause digestion related symptoms, such as stomach pain, bloating, gas production and general discomfort. FODMAPs include several carbohydrates such as oligosaccharides like fructans, disaccharides like lactose and polyols like sorbitol which are well known of causing stomach discomfort. Main FODMAPs in bread are called fructans. 20 % of consumers avoid bread to feel better in their stomachs, and FODMAPs are potential, yet relatively unknown explanation for this common wellness concern. That is why Low-FODMAP products are expected to become the next big thing in stomach wellness – a game changer in the market for baked goods for digestive well-being.

In addition, FODMAP carbohydrates often increase the symptoms of people with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS is estimated to affect one in seven people globally. One way to manage IBS symptoms is to follow a low-FODMAP diet. The results show that bloating, pain and flatulence were reduced when IBS patients were on a low-FODMAP diet.

Fazer’s latest world-class innovation gives FODMAP-sensitive people access to bakery products with less fructan in their diet. Fazer Research has discovered fructanase, an enzyme with unique features, and developed it into Fazer LOFO™ improver. This innovation breaks down the fructan into more easily digestible units during the baking process. These smaller units are often gentler to the stomach. Fazer LOFO™ has proven to easily decrease the fructan content of bread by more than 50 % compared to reference products in straight-dough baking processes.
Fazer LOFO™ improver is suitable for different types of bread and does not change the taste or other key properties of the final product
