Gum arabic is the gum that is exuded from certain trees, such as the Acacia Senegal tree. It’s a source of dietary fiber that can dissolve in water.
Gum arabic tends to make people feel full, so they might stop eating earlier than they otherwise would. This might lead to weight loss and reduced cholesterol levels.
Gum arabic is used for high cholesterol, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
