Solnul™ and Griffith Foods™ Offer Prebiotic Snack Seasoning Targeting Digestive Health and Nutrient Gap

Solnul®’s Patented Prebiotic Resistant Starch (RS2) is a Key Ingredient in the Formulation.

CARBERRY, MB, September 21, 2021 – MSP Starch Products Inc. (MSP), largest potato starch producer in Canada, has partnered with Griffith Foods™, experts in delivering flavorful snacks, to formulate a prebiotic snack seasoning product featuring MSP’s proprietary resistant potato starch, Solnul®.

Solnul® is supported by human microbiome research demonstrating its effects on GI health, microbial balance and regularity. As an insoluble but fully fermentable fiber, it also functions as a prebiotic by significantly increasing Bifidobacterium in the GI tract to support a healthy microbiome at low doses.

Griffith Foods™ prebiotic snack seasoning is available in two flavors and well-suited for popcorn, extruded snack, rice cake and crisp applications. Each serving contains the benefits of a clinically-researched dose of 3.5 g Solnul® 50% more fiber, half the sodium and less sugar than the leading flavored popcorn brand in the US.1 Formulators can expect to increase the quantity and quality of their product’s fiber for a truly better-for-you snack offering.

“The scary reality is studies continue to show that Western diets are not providing adequate resistant starch. The average American gets only 20% of the resistant starch Suggested Dietary Target2 per day from diet alone. Solnul® offers a fortification solution that is both convenient and effective at closing this gap, which goes beyond just fiber. Together with our industry partners, we’re pioneering a new way of eating that is focused on microbiome health,” said Jason Leibert, Chief Growth Officer at MSP.

“At Griffith Foods, we love sourcing ingredients that not only have the research to meet market demand but a compelling nutritional benefit. It helps us offer unique solutions to our customers, allowing them to remain as innovative leaders within their categories,” said Samantha Amos, Senior Innovation Scientist at Griffith Foods™.

55% of US consumers consider high fiber content an important attribute when purchasing a healthy snack.3 Prebiotic has become a top front-of-package claim consumers associate with better-for-you snacks.4 Formulators can capitalize on the growing demand for prebiotic products with this Snack Seasoning while maintaining the most important pillars of the perfect snack: taste, appearance and nutrition.

The Snack Seasoning comes in two innovative flavors white cheddar and tzatziki. Contact info@solnul.com for samples and more information.
