Partially Hydrolysed Guar Gum (FODMAP Friendly) 200g
Guar gum is a gel-forming galactomannan, obtained from Cyamoposis tetragonolobus, a leguminous plant grown mainly in India and Pakistan. Since 1953, the seeds of the guar plant have been processed into guar gum; this compound is widely used in food industry as thickener and emulsion stabilizer. However, because of its high viscosity, guar gum cannot be easily incorporated in foods and beverages. Therefore, guar gum may be partially hydrolyzed by using β-endo-mannanase. The resulting partially hydrolyzed guar gum (PHGG) is a water-soluble compound, characterized by low viscosity. When used experimentally, PHGG relieved symptoms in constipation-predominant and diarrhoea forms of IBS and improved the quality of life. Moreover, PHGG appears to exert prebiotic properties, by increasing the concentration of intestinal short-chain fatty acids, Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria[1,2]. PHGG may also lower the level of Firmicutes bacteria and increase Bacteroidetes to promote weight loss.
