Description of Guar Gum Powder Dietary Fiber 16 oz from Source Naturals
Guar Gum Dietary Fiber
Guar Gum (Galactomannan polymer) is an important noncaloric source of soluble
dietary fiber. Guar Gum is a complex carbohydrate derived from the seed of specially
grown bean plants. This carbohydrate is a long chain linear molecule with a molecular
weight of approximately 1 million. The long polymer chains attract and weakly
capture water; as well as physically tangle with one another in solution thus
producing viscosity when mixed with water.
