What is WholeFiber?
WholeFiber™ is more than a 100% natural, plant-based dietary fiber. It contains the whole package of healthy (prebiotic) fibers and nutrients that are present in a whole chicory root or Jerusalem artichoke tuber. That’s because instead of extracting one fiber from a vegetable, we preserve the vegetable itself. The result is a ‘third-generation’ dietary fiber, with a prebiotic content of over 85%.
How much fiber
do you eat?
In many countries, the average daily fiber intake is only half the recommended*) amount of 30-40 gram.

How WholeFiber will boost your health
Feel the benefit
WholeFiber has a neutral taste and is easy to include in your everyday meals. It boosts the growth of beneficial gut bacteria, which are essential to your physical and mental health. WholeFiber may strengthen your immune system and contribute to reducing the risk of life-threatening diseases such as coronary heart disease, colorectal cancer and diabetes type-2.
Improve bowel movement
Almost 1 in 5 people suffer from constipation, and in many cases increasing fiber intake can provide relief. WholeFiber contains both soluble fiber (which gives stools bulk) and insoluble fiber (which speeds up the stool’s movement through the bowel system). A clinical trial has demonstrated that WholeFiber increases the regularity of stools and helps to reduce constipation.
Fight diabetes type-2
Over 800 million people are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes because of an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. Eating more fiber is a crucial step towards reducing that risk and may even reverse the effects of the disease. WholeFiber makes it easy to boost your fiber intake and meet the recommended 40 g of fiber a day. Eating more fibers reduces the risk of obesity and there are indications it improves insulin sensitivity. There are strong indications that already increasing daily fiber intake by 15 g will reduce cardiometabolic risk factors of adults with prediabetes or diabetes (Reynolds et al 2020).
WholeFiber for the food industry
…can be used as a multifunctional food ingredient: it has a neutral taste and can be supplied as granules, powder or cubes, for a wide range of applications.
…is a 100% natural dietary fiber: plant-based, non-GMO sourced, free from gluten and lactose. It is made from traditionally and organically grown chicory root, that contains inulin as well as three other beneficial fibers and other vital nutrients.
…impacts your gut microbes and metabolism as supported by independent clinical research.
…has a small environmental footprint. It is made from traditionally and organically grown vegetables which are dried straight from the field, using very little energy and water and producing virtually no waste or unwanted by-products.
What does WholeFiber do?
In short: it improves the health of the human microbiome, by delivering more of the right nutrients for beneficial gut bacteria to flourish. Whereas other dietary fibers can be compared to a quick snack, WholeFiber provides a three-course meal that reaches bacteria throughout the intestinal tract.
Independent clinical studies have confirmed that WholeFiber selectively boosts the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. These in turn produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which play a crucial, well-documented role in promoting overall health. For example, they fight off harmful bacteria, protect intestinal lining and promote satiety. They also regulate the body’s immune system, 70% of which is located in the intestinal tract. Recent studies indicate inulin fiber could also offer extra protection against viral infections – possibly even against Covid-19.
restoring the broken pact between humans and bacteria
Prebiotic fibers are the key to restoring and maintaining a unique symbiotic relationship between humans and the bacteria living in our intestinal tract.
It’s a wonderful pact that has served us well for millions of years. We provide the bacteria with a place to live. They help us digest our food, make sure our immune system functions properly, provide us with important vitamins and help us to feel physically and mentally fit.
However, in hundreds of millions of people this valuable relationship is in danger of breaking down. Unhealthy eating habits deprive the bacteria of the nutrients they need. This damages the gut microbiome, making people more vulnerable to infections, obesity and life-threatening disease.
WholeFiber’s mission is to help restore this relationship. To help more people take control of their diet, their health, and their quality of life.
