The physiological effects of guar gum have been extensively studied, first on animals and then on humans.In rats, the only significant effects from guar gum supplementation were reduced body weight and lower blood glucose, even with guar gum making up 15% of the diet (over 100 times the FDA Acceptable Daily Intake).Researchers conducted multiple 90-day trials in rats, mice, and beagles with tara gum as 5% of the diet, and found no adverse effects other than decreased body weight in the experimental groups.

(19) In 2-year trials, the experimental groups had more tumors than the control groups, but due to the “high spontaneous incidence” of this particular tumor and the fact that nearly all of the control mice developed the tumor as well, researchers concluded that this was not a result of the tara gum supplementation.

(20)I’m slightly more skeptical of tara gum compared with the other gums because the toxicity results are less conclusive.

(2, 3, 4)Because the animal studies showed no harm even at very high doses, guar gum is now being studied in humans as a therapeutic tool for reducing blood glucose and cholesterol levels.

Studies have shown guar gum supplementation to be effective for reducing fasting blood glucose, improving glycemic control, reducing insulin requirements in insulin-dependent diabetics, and reducing LDL cholesterol, although whether these effects could be maintained long-term is uncertain.

(12)Similar to guar gum, locust bean gum has also been studied in humans as a potential cholesterol-lowering compound.

(13) Normal subjects and subjects with familial hypercholesterolemia were given between 8 and 30 grams per day of locust bean gum for 8 weeks, resulting in reduced total cholesterol and an improved HDL to LDL ratio.(17) The study authors concluded that gum arabic is at least as effective a prebiotic as inulin, if not more so.Many of you are probably aware that inulin is sold as a prebiotic supplement, so that’s pretty significant!Otherwise, I see no indication that it will cause harm.Gum arabic is derived from the sap of the acacia tree.Locust bean gum, also known as carob bean gum, is derived from the seeds of the carob tree.
