Prebiotic Banana Loaf By Isha Patel

Prebiotic Banana Loaf 

If you’re looking for a delicious and gut-friendly treat, this Prebiotic Banana Loaf is just what you need. Packed with pure hydrolysed guar gum (PHGG), a low FODMAP, water-soluble fibre, this loaf not only satisfies your taste buds but also supports the growth of friendly gut bacteria and promotes microbial diversity.

Why Prebiotics Matter

Before we dive into the recipe, let’s talk about the importance of prebiotics. Prebiotics are non-digestible fibres that serve as a source of food for beneficial bacteria in the gut. They play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy gut microbiome, which is essential for overall well-being. By nourishing these good bacteria, prebiotics help improve digestion, enhance nutrient absorption, and support a robust immune system.

The Star Ingredient: Pure Hydrolysed Guar Gum (PHGG)

In this Banana Loaf, we introduce the star ingredient, Pure Hydrolysed Guar Gum (PHGG). Derived from guar beans, PHGG is a prebiotic fibre known for its low FODMAP content, making it suitable for individuals with sensitive digestive systems or those following low FODMAP diets. PHGG has excellent water solubility, making it easy to incorporate into your favourite recipes, like this delicious Banana Loaf.

Banana Loaf Recipe – Nourishing Your Gut and Delighting Your Taste Buds


  • 3 medium overripe bananas
  • ⅓ cup (76g) soft butter
  • A pinch of mineral salt
  • ¾ cup (150g) brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups (205g) gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 3 tbsp Pure Hydrolysed Guar Gum (PHGG)
  • ¼ cup crushed walnuts


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F).

  • Peel the overripe bananas and break them into small pieces. Add them to the bowl with the eggs, vanilla extract, and a pinch of mineral salt. Mix until lightly combined.
