Health Canada recognizes acacia gum as dietary fiber

September 19, 2011

Colloides Naturels International (CNI) has received regulatory approvals for its Fibregum product line of all natural, soluble dietary fiber based on acacia gum. Health Canada has recognized the Fibregum brand of acacia gum as a dietary fiber source in Canada. Furthermore, Health Canada has approved the classification of Fibregum as "traditional dietary fiber" and not a "novel fiber." Health Canada has clearly said they have "no objection" to the sale of Fibregum acacia gum as dietary fiber for labeling purposes in Canada.

Health Canada has stated "no objection" to the use of Fibregum acacia gum as a dietary fiber source in confectionery (20–50% use level), grain-based bars (4–20% use level), and also for use in extruded products, bakery products, beverages, dairy products, and meal substitutes (1–6% use level).
