Carbiotix has screened the market for the best available soluble fibers for its personalized sachets. Currently, we are using Arabinogalactan sourced from the US as our starting soluble fiber. This fiber performed the best with regards to stimulating the production of lactobacillus and bifidobacteria (good bacteria), production of key short chain fatty acids, the length of fermentation time and the smallest likelihood of causing discomfort. Arabinogalactan is currently one of the most expensive soluble fibers on the market and for a good reason.
