Is Sunfiber a Prebiotic?

Question Mark Cloud in blue sky

March 5, 2013

Sunfiber is a Prebiotic fiber that is unique in comparison to other non galactomannan based fibers. A prebiotic fiber is one that produces “short chain fatty acids” (SCFA) in the gut via a fermentation process. The rate of production of SCFAs is very important. If fermentation occurs rapidly (as is the case with Inulin and other soluble fibers) the result is an excess of uncomfortable bloating and flatulence. The fermentation process of Sunfiber is extremely slow resulting in a higher total amount of SCFAs that are produced over a greater period of time, leading to significantly less gas, bloating and discomfort.
