Sunfiber® from Taiyo
Sunfiber® has the ideal properties of a excellent water solubility, and one not too fast, but complete, fermentation. This makes the product very user-friendly, compared to, for example, psyllium fiber which dissolves considerably less well in water and inulin which is fermented very quickly. Taiyo is the producer of Sunfiber® and global market leader and expert in guar bean fibers. The fibers from guar beans normally form a gel in water. Taiyo has therefore developed a special production process to make the fibers dissolve better in water. The reason for this gel formation is that guar bean fibers naturally consist of very long chains of carbohydrates. Through a fermentation process (by the addition of a natural enzyme), the long chains are pre-digested in the plant, so to speak, into shorter chains, which are much more soluble. However, the carbohydrate chains must not become too short in this process, otherwise they will be fermented too quickly in the intestine. Taiyo's unique production process ensures the optimal chain length and gives Sunfiber® its ideal properties. Moreover, the Sunfiber® in Guar Bean Fiber is made organically entirely from organically grown guar beans.
