Founded in 1941, MGP is a leading producer of specialty wheat proteins and starches based in the Heartland. Backed by teams of food and grain science experts, our ingredients help bakers boost the nutritional benefits of their products, while improving functionality and enhancing sensory appeal.
While our story is more than 75 years old, we’re attuned to the trends driving demand for your products and provide solutions to help you reach today’s consumer.
Our FDA-approved dietary fiber Fibersym® RW, an RS4 resistant wheat starch, boosts fiber content without compromising taste and consistency. It recently received low FODMAP™ certification from Monash University, allowing you to confidently develop products that address digestive issues.
Easy to incorporate and white in color, Fibersym is an ideal source of “invisible” fiber suitable for a number of bakery applications. Fibersym also reduces caloric content of bakery products and helps lower blood glucose, insulin and cholesterol levels when consumed.
Our Principal Scientist, Sarah Corwin, Ph.D., RD, helps support MGP’s research into dietary fiber. The scientific advances coming out of her dissertation on slow-digesting carbohydrates and their possible impact in human nutrition are relevant to ongoing research initiatives in understanding further the beneficial physiological effects of dietary fibers in humans.
Low Net Carbs
Weight-conscious consumers are looking for low-net-carbohydrate products, which can be a challenge in bakery applications because of functional issues in working with high-fiber and high-protein formulas. MGP has the answer: formulas containing our Arise® wheat protein isolate, together with Fibersym. Arise provides up to 90% protein with improved functionality and quality, while Fibersym possesses a highly concentrated fiber, both of which reduce net carbohydrates.

Another health concern for many consumers is sodium. Minimize sodium and other flavor enhancers – and maximize taste – with our Midsol® line of specialty starches.
