Functions of the New Food Ingredient Arabinoxylan

At present, compared with the current functional health food, which is getting stricter and stricter in registration and approval, new food ingredients can be an excellent tool for leading enterprises to exploit the market. Recently, the China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment is open for public comments on the new food ingredient arabinoxylan. Arabinoxylan, a water-insoluble polysaccharide made from sugarcane bagasse, wheat bran, corn husk, and other herbs, is mainly used as one of the sources of dietary fiber. Moreover, arabinoxylan has a range of benefits including antioxidant, gut regulation, blood sugar control, and immune activity support. (Source: shuzhengkangxun)
