Everyone can benefit from Pure Fiber: The RDA for fiber is 28 g/day, but because most Americans don’t consume enough vegetables, fruits, or other fiber-rich foods, most people average only about 15 g per day. Two teaspoons of Pure Fiber provide 3 grams of fiber, which can help boost fiber intake closer to the recommended daily amount.
- 12 types of fiber: Acacia gum, cellulose, guar gum, cranberry seed powder, carrot fiber, inulin, orange fiber, apple pectin, glucomannan, psyllium husk, flax, prune
- Free of non-Paleolithic food extracts: free of grains (wheat, oat or rice bran) and legumes (peas, beans or soy fibers)
- Does not contain gluten or lectin, low allergenicity
- Does not contain phytates (phytic acid is found in grains, has an acid load and binds minerals — which interferes with their absorption)
- Soluble fiber – attracts and dissolves in water, turning into a gel-like substance that helps to regulate the rate of digestion and, in turn, helps with satiety (feeling “satisfied” or appropriately full after a meal). Soluble fiber can be hard to obtain through the diet.
- Insoluble fiber – the basis of most plant-based products. Insoluble means that it does not dissolve in water, but rather stays intact throughout the digestive system. This type of fiber is considered gut-healthy, because it adds bulk to the diet and helps support healthy bowel function.
- Acacia gum – a prebiotic from the popular acacia tree. Prebiotics support the growth of friendly bacteria.
- Guaranteed purity – free of toxic contaminants
- No artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors
- Mixes well and tastes great!
