Acacia Gum is a Bifidogenic Dietary Fibre with High Digestive Tolerance in Healthy Humans
Microbial Ecology in Health and Disease
The objective of the present study was to determine whether acacia gum (GUM) is a prebiotic fibre and to evaluate its intestinal tolerance in healthy subjects. The effects of increasing doses of GUM were compared to those of sucrose (SUC) on stool output, concentration of the main bacterial populations in stools, and occurrence and severity of intestinal symptoms (flatulence, bloating, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea). Ingestion of GUM 10 and 15 g/day for 10 days increased total lacticdoi:10.3402/mehd.v15i1.7977 fatcat:vpsghdl5yrgc3bydgabmc6dvei
