Cyamopsis tetragonolobus (Guar) gum
Soluble fiber is not digestible by enzymes in the gastrointestinal system but is instead fermented by healthy bacteria in the gut. Soluble fiber enhances gastrointestinal health, function and regularity, and increases satiety. It also supports healthy blood sugar balance and cardiovascular health. A low intake of dietary fiber has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Hydrolyzation is a controlled natural process that breaks guar gum down into smaller units, greatly decreasing its viscosity and allowing the particles to dissolve more readily, while maintaining the original fiber content. It is a patented highly soluble form of fiber that has been used in clinical trials, studied in children, and found to be one of the most palatable and well-tolerated soluble fibers that does not alter the taste and texture of food or drink. Guar gum is fermented more slowly in the intestinal tract than some other prebiotic fibers, making it easily tolerated.
