Consumers Recognize That Gut Health Is Key To Achieving Holistic Wellbeing

The attention towards healthy nutrition has been increasing steadily over the past decades, with one health aspect being highly relevant to the consumer: their digestive wellness. ​Today, 1 in 2 consumers across the globe say to frequently look for foods to improve the digestion.

Consumers spontaneously position their gut as the central location where overall health departs. One of the reasons for this association is the mounting science around the microbiome. Experts also often refer to it as the ‘second brain’ which has its very own nervous system and we want to keep that healthy.

Generally, fibre is the most accepted and recognized gut health ingredient among consumers. But did you know that prebiotics are the fibres by excellence having a positive impact on the microbiome? The global consumer awareness of prebiotics has steadily grown over the years, from 34 in 2018 to 39% in 2022. Chicory root fibres are the only proven plant-based prebiotics which have been extensively researched for more than 20 years and are still growing strong in today’s new product innovations.
