Based on product, the global dietary fibers market is segmented into soluble and insoluble dietary fibers. Soluble dietary fiber is expected to surpass USD 4 billion by 2026. A dietary fiber product with soluble fiber ingredient becomes a gel when it reacts with the abdominal fluids, thereby slowing down the digestion process and allowing the body to fully absorb the nutrients in the food consumed. It also minimizes the increase in low-density lipoprotein or bad cholesterol in the blood. According to the National Institutes of Health, this will lower the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.

Beta-glucan and inulin are the prominent subtype of soluble fibers used across several key industries. Beta-glucan is strongly linked to boosting heart health and improving cholesterol levels. It is indigestible and aids in cleansing out the unwanted cholesterol when it passes through the digestive tract, thereby controlling cholesterol levels. These properties of beta-glucan have enabled the product to obtain USFDA approval as a heart-healthy dietary fiber.
