Fibregum™ Gum Acacia is a natural soluble dietary fibre produced from an exudate of the Acacia Tree. It is a unique low viscosity fibre with excellent stability.

Fibregum™ contains in excess of 90% soluble fibre (dry matter basis) calculated using the official AOCS 985.29 method. Thanks to its high solubility and no added viscosity, Fibregum™ is easy to incorporate in many applications to reinforce their health benefits (beverages, cereal bars, baked goods, dairy products, nutraceuticals...).

Fibregum™ offers manufacturers several advantages over other fibre sources:

Fibregum™ is acid resistant and has excellent stability in products such as juices and fruit products. For example Trials on a fruit juice (pH 3.2) containing 3% FIBREGUM™ stored at room temperature for 3 months showed no significant fibre loss due. Many other short chain fibres do not have good stability below pH3 and may hydrolyse rapidly over time.

Fibregum™ is a large molecule and is therefore fermented slowly in the gut. This helps promote the growth of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli which produce short chain fatty acids associated with various physiological benefits of the gut and overall gut health. In addition the slow fermentation means that gas production is limited and does not lead to gut discomfort often associated with other smaller molecular weight fibres.

Fibregum™ is easily dispersed in water and can be easily incorporated into most foods. It has a very low viscosity and a bland flavour, allowing it to be used easily in various formulations.

Fibregum™ is completely natural and of vegetable origin. It is GMO free, with no chemical or enzymatic modification and meets the requirements for “natural ingredient” declarations.

Fibregum™ has several function properties such as good film forming properties, emulsification, improving cohesion, and moderating crystal formation.
