What is IMO?
IMO stands for Isomaltooligosaccharides which is a mixture of short-chain carbohydrates that have digestion-resistant properties. The raw material used for producing IMO is plant-based starch (pea or tapioca), which is enzymatically converted into a mixture of isomaltooligosaccharides. VitaFiber® is a natural, plant-based, sweet fibre and is the only IMO derived from pea starch through a patented process.
How can VitaFiber® IMO benefit me?
Aside from being a great alternative to sugar, our product can actually do a lot of good for your body.
Source of dietary fibre
VitaFiber® has 3 grams of fibre which is the same as a medium banana. It’s available in syrup and powder form that are easy to integrate in your cooking or baking.
The pea starch used to make VitaFiber® is locally sourced within North America. It is truly nature’s sweet side!

One serving of VitaFiber® is 42% less calories than sugar or honey. Create scrumptious foods without the extra calories.

Create delicious treats without the guilt. From protein bars to smoothies to cookies, VitaFiber® helps create healthy indulgences with added fibre benefits.
No bitter aftertaste here
Unlike other sweeteners, VitaFiber® doesn’t have any aftertaste, just a clean, mildly sweet taste you can savour. (Think about mild honey!)
