Partially Hydrolysed Guar Gum (FODMAP Friendly) 200g

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.[1] 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.[1] 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.[1] When used experimentally, PHGG relieved symptoms in constipation-predominant and diarrhoea forms of IBS and improved the quality of life.[2] 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.
