We're glad you asked! 🧐
Gum arabic is a type of soluble fiber made from the sap of the acacia tree.
It is a safe, non-toxic ingredient that has a long history of human use stretching all the way back to ancient Egypt.
Is it good for my health?
Gum Arabic is considered to be a "prebiotic" which means that it provides food for gut bacteria which in turn may support the health of the digestive system.
It can also help stabilize blood sugar levels by slowing the absorption of other types of dietary carbohydrate.
Why do you use it in Creamy MCT Oil?
Gum arabic is a natural emulsifier, which means that it helps oil (in this case MCT oil) and water combine.
This is what allows our Creamy MCT Oil to easily stir into both hot and cold beverages with just spoon. No blender required!
