__ brewing (non-fermentable properties, so leaving some residual sweetness and mouthfeel) ;
__ confectionery (anti-cariogenic properties, cause less tooth decay) ;
__ baking (anti-staling properties) ;
__ health food industries, various functional foods and prebiotics [Bifidus bacteria (also called bifidobacteria) growth factor].
