Benefiber Change

As of July 2006, Benefiber has announced that all of their products will no longer contain partially hydrolized guar gum. Benefiber will now be made from wheat dextrin. According to a phone representative at Novartis, the makers of Benefiber, this decision was made to allow for smaller dosages and for a higher profit margin. Benefiber guar gum provided 3 grams of soluble fiber per tablespoon, whereas Benefiber wheat dextrin provides 1.5 grams of soluble fiber per teaspoon (there are three teaspoons in one tablespoon).

I do not know how wheat dextrin compares to guar gum as a soluble fiber supplement for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I would not assume that the wheat dextrin in Benefiber is safe for people with wheat allergies or gluten intolerance disorders such as celiac.

Please check here for comprehensive information about all soluble fiber supplements.
