Signs up to the UK Food and Drink Federation’s Action on Fibre

Tate & Lyle PLC (Tate & Lyle), a leading global provider of food and beverage solutions and ingredients, has signed up to the UK’s Food and Drink Federation’s (FDF) Action on Fibre.

The FDF’s Action on Fibre initiative has been launched to help consumers ‘bridge the gap’ between fibre intake and the dietary recommendation to help improve gut health and reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

Through the Action on Fibre initiative, Tate & Lyle has pledged to continue to promote the benefits of increasing intake of fibre and the importance of gut health through its thought leadership, communication initiatives and ongoing engagement with industry experts, healthcare professionals and food and beverage manufacturers.

Dr Kavita Karnik, Global Head of Nutrition and Regulatory Affairs at Tate & Lyle, said: “Fibre does so much more than simply promote healthy bowel function. It can help prolong the feeling of fullness, support gut health, regulate blood cholesterol, glucose and insulin levels and help the immune system function properly.”
