  • Description Overview
  • Sunfiber® partially hydrolysed guar gum is a soluble dietary fibre that is naturally sourced from the guar bean plant.

    Sunfiber® is an excellent prebiotic for maintaining digestive health and microflora balance.

    It promotes healthy bowel function and regularity, improves bowel consistency and helps return stool to a normal healthy state without bloating.

    PHGG is a great way to increase your daily intake of fibre.

    Key Features

    • Clear, easily dissolving powder to mix into any drink or water.

    • Does not have the viscous or swelling properties of guar gum.

    • PHGG acts as a prebiotic where the bacteria in the colon ferments it into intestinal fuel called short chain fatty acids (SCFA’s) like butyrate, propionate and acetate.
