Formulated foods for special medical use play a pivotal role in the nutritional support and nutritional treatment of clinical patients such as diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, liver failure, and gastrointestinal tract malabsorption. The core problem of special population is digestion and absorption. The intestinal health and intestinal micro-ecological balance play a key role in the digestion and absorption of nutrients. Dietary fiber, especially soluble dietary fiber, regulates intestinal flora and maintains intestinal micro-ecology. It plays an important role in balancing, promoting the health of the digestive tract, lowering blood lipids and cholesterol, improving immunity, and promoting the absorption of mineral elements. It plays an important role in the development of special medical foods and clinical enteral nutrition therapy.
