Gum Arabic is derived from the sap of the acacia tree. It is one of the Earth’s best-known sources of prebiotic dietary fiber, because of its low viscosity, and it carries with it a host of health benefits, particularly when it comes to weight loss. A two-arm randomized, placebo controlled, double-blind trial was conducted in the Department of Physiology at the Khartoum University and concluded that Gum Arabic ingestion causes a significant reduction in BMI and body fat percentage among healthy adult females. Another study, as documented by the British Journal of Nutrition, concluded that Gum Arabic is at least as effective a prebiotic as inulin, which is commonly sold as a prebiotic supplement.
