CARAFIBRE provides great features for human nutrition

Therefore, consuming 10 to 15 grams per day increases the amount of lactic acid and thus the number of Bifidobacteria. Moreover, 95% of this fibre is absorbed by the human body. In addition, consuming this natural soluble prebiotic acacia gum improves digestion. It also prevents intestinal symptoms and increases the work of the intestinal flora.

Changes in eating habits tend to lower daily fiber intake. In developed countries, it is estimated that the average daily intake of dietary fiber is 12 g, which is insufficient. Indeed, a contribution of at least 30 g per day is recommended because the dietary fiber is essential to the proper functioning of the intestinal transit. Dietary fiber is present in plant foods, fruits, vegetables and cereals in particular. Dried fruits, such as prunes or dried apricots, are particularly rich.
