About Soluble Fiber

Soluble fiber is found inside and around the structural material of cell walls in plants. It consists of pectin, gums (guar gum, gum arabic and locust bean gum), mucilage and some hemicelluloses. Soluble fiber dissolves in water. In the human gastrointestinal tract, fiber passes through mostly undigested until it reaches the colon where dietary fibers are slowly and incompletely fermented by intestinal microbes.
