Hello Barbara,

I'm so sorry that you're having difficulty getting the Tummy Fiber to dissolve. The Tummy Fiber is certified organic, all natural gum of the acacia tree – also known as gum arabic. We have sourced the exact same organic Acacia Senegal grade from the same supplier since our company was founded. The gum arabic is collected in a similar way as maple syrup, although the gum is more of a solid than a liquid. This is how the pieces look when the gum is collected from the outside of the tree. Then, the gum is dissolved in water. Finally, it is filtered and heated for sterilization. Once that is all finished, the liquid is sprayed onto very large surfaces so that the water can evaporate. When the water evaporates, we are left with the fine, white powder that is acacia fiber.

There are no chemicals used in processing the acacia. Every step is certified organic, including the orchards, the processing and our packaging. Because this is a natural gum with nothing added, rather than a synthetic, highly processed product, the grain size of the finished powder can vary from lot to lot, even within a single lot. Even though we have specs in place for the grain size to be consistent and the optimum granularity for dissolving easily in liquids, during the packaging process the conveying and vibrating activities can sometimes separate out larger grains of the gum. This can result in a handful of finished packages of Tummy Fiber that have larger or more irregular grain sizes, which can then take longer to dissolve in liquids.

I'm including a list of tips we've come up with over the years to help fully dissolve the acacia in liquids or moist foods.


1) It works best if the liquid temperature is cool or lukewarm, not very cold or boiling hot.

2) Add Tummy Fiber to an empty cup, mix it with just enough liquid to dissolve it, and then add the remaining liquid.

3) Stir with a fork instead of a spoon.

4) After stirring initially, let it sit for about 60 seconds, then stir again and any remaining lumps should dissolve.

5) Instead of adding a big spoonful all at once, sprinkle on moist foods while stirring.

6) A customer recently told us that he uses a hand held blender to mix up his Tummy Fiber in just a few seconds.

If you are still unable to use the Tummy Fiber and are at all unhappy, please let us know and we will replace or refund the product.

Hope this helps,
Heather's Tummy Care

Very healing
I purchased this last year and wasn't sure if I really liked it. After going to the Dr again, as I had my gall bladder removed a year earlier, I was given meds to replace the missing bile. Now I use the Acacia fibre and I love it. It calms my stomach which was visibly bloated and distended everytime I would eat. I am in the process of very slowly increasing it. I'm glad I found it.

Not for me
Although I had great hopes for this fiber, it isn't for me. It didn't give me cramps like other fiber supplements, but it did not help my constipation at all. In fact, it made it much, much worse (and yes, I have been following the directions exactly). And although this product seems to work great for others, I do think there are certain people this product simply doesn't work well for. Every BODY is different and we each must choose what works well for us.

Hi there, Anon!

Thank you so much for your feedback.

For the Tummy Fiber Acacia to work properly, it's crucial that you start with a low dose (1/2 teaspoon twice daily) and gradually increase to a dose high enough to resolve constipation (which may be 4-5 tablespoons a day). If you get gas or bloating, that means that you increased your dose too quickly. It can take several weeks to gradually increase up to the dose you'd likely need to resolve constipation, and unfortunately you can't rush this. Tummy Fiber is not a drug or a laxative so it won't work overnight.

I really feel for the constipation folks, since it takes some patience to start slowly, increase gradually, and eventually get your daily dose high enough to resolve symptoms. A lower dose can't worsen constipation, but it won't resolve it, either.

Having the fiber at least twice a day - and you can have it more often - is also key, as you want to keep your gut filled with soluble fiber at all times. That will help prevent cramping and spasms in the first place.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. If you wish to return the product at any time for a full refund, that is never a problem.

Heathers Tummy Fiber is amazing!!!!
I am from the UK and found this via the web after years of UK doctors trying to find a workable remedy for me. This Tummy Fiber has literally changed my life. The fiber has reduced by symptoms immensely and even allowed been to be able to consume some foods that I was scared to eat in the past in case it triggered my IBS (of course still in moderation). Would highly recommend this to anyone who suffers with IBS or other similar digestion illnesses. The team have always ensured speedy delivery of my products and I always receive regular updates, advice and offers which really help. The travel packs of the tummy fiber is are really handy too!

Hello Amy,

Thank you so much taking the time to write a review of our Tummy Fiber.

We are very sorry that you that did not find our speed of delivery or customer service to be helpful.

We apologize for the delay in your order delivery. Foreign orders are always a frustration for us, because shipping is so expensive, and orders can be delayed for weeks in customs, and then on top of it all the customs/duties fees are so unpredictable and inconsistent.

If you are ever given more information by customs on your end, please do let us know anything at all you think would be helpful. In the past, customers in the countries we ship to have had a lot more access to customs officials, and been given more information, than we have been able to obtain from our end in the US.

I’m also sorry that you have encountered some troubles with our Acacia Tummy Fiber. Depending on your symptoms, it may take several weeks to reach a resolving daily dose of the Tummy Fiber. Taking too much acacia too fast can cause increased gas and bloating. Acacia is one of the lowest gas-forming fibers out there and going slow makes the gas issue totally avoidable. Please be patient because this really does work.

We recommend starting with ½ teaspoon twice a day (daily dose of 1 teaspoon). You can split the daily dose up as many time as you like throughout the day, just divide it by 2 or 3 depending on the frequency you prefer. Try to increase the dose every 4th day or so by a teaspoon (add this to the daily dose). If you get increased gas and bloating by jumping the dose up by a teaspoon, try cutting this in half. Some people with IBS are so sensitive they have to go up at ¼ teaspoons every 4th day. Keep stepping up the dose every 4th day or so until you find a dose that resolves your constipation and/or diarrhea. Constipation is usually resolved with a daily dose of 4-5 tablespoons/day and diarrhea/loose stools usually resolves at a lower dose of 1-3 tablespoons/day. You shouldn't take more than 5 tbsp/day. The maintenance dose is different for each person depending on their specific symptoms. Dietary changes are often necessary to make lasting changes. In the beginning until you stabilize, it works best to take the acacia before each meal to minimize the effect of trigger foods in the meal and to calm the intestines before the food arrives.

You may need to keep increasing your daily dose to notice more results. I will also personally email you to continue this conversation if you have further questions.

Please remember that, at any time, for any reason whatsoever, you are not completely satisfied with anything purchased through this website; simply return it with the invoice for a full refund, excluding shipping costs. There is no time limit.

You are welcome to return just part of an order, such as one or two items from a kit. You do not have to return an order in full if you would like to keep some but not all of the products.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you in the future.
