happiGut™. is made of a whole plant complex dietary prebiotic fibre that comes from the Sugarcane plant.
happiGut™ has a texture and mouthfeel as it has both soluble and insoluble fibre and does not dissolve in drinks. It is neutral in taste. It is a pure raw prebiotic fibre that is not denatured, sweetened or flavoured. It is not a purified isolated fibre.
happiGut™ is easy to add to your existing diet. It is tasteless and does not alter the taste of the meals.
happiGut™ is very versatile and can be taken at your convenience. It is non-gelling unlike other fibres and therefore will not interfere with medications or nutrition absorption. Think of it as another way of consuming a vegetable in the way it interacts.
Food sensitivities, FODMAPs, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other digestive issues affect people in many ways with symptoms including stomach cramps, abdominal pain, gas, bloating and constipation. happiGut™ feeds the good fibre digesting bacteria in the gut. the micronutrients, insoluble fibre, the SCFAs all add up to an optimal chance to experience digestive benefits. happiGut™ is also FODMAP friendly, is well researched through University trials as a gut-friendly prebiotic fibre. For sensitive gut, the key is to start low in serving size for example with 1/4 teaspoon and build up over time. For those with a sensitive gut, the approach may take weeks. Trust us and trust your gut and happiGut™ will lead you on the path to a healthy microbiome and good digestive health.
happiGut™ is 100% sugarcane plant with 95% of the sucrose removed through a chemical-free process while the micronutrients and phytonutrients are preserved delivering the whole nutritional content of the plant source to you as a dietary fibre. One serving (1tsp) has 0.1g of sugar which amounts to 1/40th of a teaspoon or 1.6 calories. happiGut™. is on the low glycemic index and is highly favoured for diabetics as safe and effective.
The plant is grown in Australia, Queensland where the climate and soil are ideal for the cultivation of the sugarcane plant. Farmers and manufacturers maintain and ensure the highest production standards available through innovative practices to maintain the integrity of our product.
We can take a 100gram bag of happiGut™. that has been sold and trace it back to the point of sale, from there back to the bag it was packed in then we can follow the product back through processing, receiving, harvest and exactly where it came from in the field on the day of harvest.
Certified organic is when after 3 years of not using artificial agricultural additives and being audited every year for 3 years after which the crop shows no residues then organic accreditation is allowed. Following the 3 years of review and audit, growth and distribution of organic certified product is allowed. If after planting there are contamination issues through overspray, cross-contamination or spillage, the product may be contaminated and sold without knowing until the next soil audit. If the audit sample misses the contamination, the product is contaminated and in the marketplace.
We believe once a year auditing is way too little to meet the standards of product contamination. Our manufacturers work with farmers, who are part of the Great Barrier Reef best farming practices, to review its sprays and fertilizers.
Our manufacturer ensures there is sufficient time from the last fertilizers and sprays used to ensure all residues are gone. The field is tested 3 times with 5 samples before and during harvest by a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited independent laboratory as well as rigorous testing of samples after production.
Our product has never failed a residues test as a bulk product globally or as an individual packet sold to consumers.
We consider our testing, methodology and stringent quality, safety and health practices far ahead of organic farming and production requirements. This is our guarantee and promise to you.
The criteria for happiGut™ is zero in detection of Agricultural residues including pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers, all residues.
Our manufacturer has SQF (Safe Quality Foods) audits and is part of the GFSI (Global Foods Safety Initiate) accreditation which is the gold standard for food processing standard and track and trace.
Nature has decided to gift us with this complete complex whole plant fibre. This unique and versatile plant fibre has many healthful goodies that no other plant seems to have as a standalone. Think of it like a carrot, but with lots more vitamins and nutrients and many more health benefits.
happiGut™. is an essential whole food dietary prebiotic fibre. It contains as much complex fibre benefits as 2 servings of fruits or vegetables but without the sugar. Just like fruits and vegetables, it contains mineral and trace vitamins such as chromium, selenium, zinc, manganese, Iron, Tricin, and policosanols (shown to be anti-inflammatory) and more flavonoids than green tea (these feed the bacteria as well as support gut health), happiGut™ also contains a high amount of plant silica, which is linked to assisting bone density, hair and nails.
Our product is made for gut health management and microbiome support containing active phytonutrients and antioxidants. Our product is gluten-free, LOW GI, NON-GMO, LOW FODMAP and has no known allergens.

If you have a history of sensitive gut health, we encourage you to start with the Sensitive Gut recommendation, then increase the amount slowly over 28 days.
Every one of us experiences increased fibre and prebiotic fibre in different ways. From our customers feedback and our scientific trials and research, we know that customers experience everything from regularity, relief from indigestion, less bloat, less reflux, and a feeling of satiety and generally improved gut health. If you have a sensitive gut, it can take time to rebuild and our motto is “low and slow”. Starting with a very low amount like the tip of a teaspoon and build it up slowly to 1 teaspoon over 30 days. Some customers experience immediate benefits and for some, it can take 3-6 weeks to experience changes and improvement.
Yes, happiGut™ can be taken if you have SIBO. Prebiotics are fermented by our gut bacteria to produce short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which can have both local and systemic health benefits. In the gut, a short-chain fatty acid called butyrate is the preferred fuel source for the epithelial cells that line the gut. These SCFAs can help maintain the integrity of the intestinal lining preventing inflammation.
Yes, the earlier you start with a childs microbiome, the better they are on their path to good digestive health as adults.

FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, Monosaccharides and Polyols. These are a group of short-chain carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed. In people with gastrointestinal symptoms, a diet high in FODMAPs can induce diarrhoea and/or constipation, bloating, wind and abdominal pain.
FODMAP diets while in the exclusion stage have issues around eating enough complex dietary fibres, this can result in the microbiome becoming unbalanced and creating issues outside of IBS. happiGut™. is a complex dietary fibre. 1 teaspoon (1.5g) equals 80-150 gr of whole fruit or vegetables. The plant cell wall structure of happiGut is highly related to other fruit and vegetable cellular material but without the levels of accompanying carbohydrate sugars or lipid that are present in most.
happiGut is so low FODMAP, one could eat a whole packet and it would still be classified low FODMAP. happiGut assists with the microbiome, acid reflux and constipation and can be used through the exclusion stage of low FODMAP diet right to the inclusion stage to maintain good health.
Gluten/FODMAP sensitivity and other digestive issues affect people in many ways with symptoms including stomach cramps to abdominal pain, gas and bloating. The severity of these symptoms is different for each person and there are many treatments on the market to aid the sufferer.
happiGut™. is certainly not a cure, but it can help with symptoms; one of the most effective ways to manage the symptoms is a diet high in functional fibres and complex prebiotics.
But how does happiGut™. help bowel function and manage your triggers?
• happiGut™. is naturally Low FODMAP and certified FODMAP friendly
• By supporting the good bacteria and your microbiome and normalising digestion
• Prevents overeating by leaving you feel fuller for longer
• Promotes muscle activity in the intestines
• Helps food pass through the intestines more quickly
• Helps to provide relief from indigestion and heartburn
happiGut™ prebiotic fibre is fermented at a more uniform and sustained rate in the gut compared to other fibres, resulting in less gas production, and bloating. SCFAs are available in the hind gut as a result.
Psyllium is the dried mucus covering the psyllium flower with 90% of the product grown and harvested in India. Psyllium is a gel-forming soluble fibre, which picks up bile through the gut and has some good results with LDL cholesterol reduction and with constipation.
It is classified as a low fermenter for Short Chain Fatty Acids, in that it only ferments in the foregut and has no roughage to stimulate the hindgut which gets neglected with over-processed foods we consume. Psyllium must also be not be consumed 2 hours before or after meals and medication. As a gel, it picks up the nutrition and medication along the way out. Many products with psyllium also contain sucrose, citric acid, artificial colours and flavours.
Trials have shown happiGut™. produces Short Chain Fatty Acids the full length of the colon including producing large amounts of butyric acid needed while delivering roughage to stimulate the hindgut. happiGut™. is comprehensive and works hard to manage whole gut health and support a healthy microbiome.
Yes, happiGut™. contains both soluble and insoluble fibre which is a good assist for constipation. constipation affects people of all ages and is caused by many factors. The most common causes include a poorly maintained diet (lack of fibre), not drinking enough water, lack of exercise or physical activity, and high levels of stress.
