Gum Arabic’s Prebiotic Potential

If you’re familiar with gum arabic, you probably know it’s used in the food and nutraceutical industry as an emulsifier. Beyond this, gum arabic contains a substantial amount of fiber and is even sold as a fiber supplement, typically marketed under the name “acacia fiber.” Dietary fiber, particularly from gum arabic, is a prebiotic and is essential for strengthening the population of good bacteria in your gut. A study from the British Journal of Nutritionshowed supplementation with gum arabic increases good bacterial strains, most notably Bifidobacteria and Lactobaccili bacteria. Probiotics get a lot of attention, but discussions about prebiotic supplements are few and far between.

Gum and type 2 diabetes

No, I’m not talking about chewing gum, but a type that comes from the acacia tree and is known as gondh or acacia gum. One reason why it may help individuals with type 2 diabetes is that acacia gum is a good source of fiber, which can help lower cholesterol levels and assist with weight loss.
