WHAT IS INULIN POWDER?
BULK POWDERS™ Inulin Powder is sourced from the filtration and purification of Chicory roots – providing the highest quality source of Inulin possible.
Belonging to a class of dietary fibres called Fructans, Inulin is categorised as a unique group of naturally occurring polysaccharides. This soluble fibre is found commonly in a variety of foods including many pulses and vegetables.
Inulin is a fantastic source of soluble fibre in the diet, providing over 85g fibre per 100g. It is non-digestible in the gut and therefore passes through the stomach and small intestine unchanged, where it then enters the large intestine. For this reason it is also considered a prebiotic.
Not only can Inulin be used as a source of fibre but it has a range of other uses in the kitchen. It can be used in baking to help preserve the moisture in cakes and biscuits, and is a great binding agent for many foods. By mixing it with water and heating it, Inulin can be used to produce a syrup. Inulin can also be added to smoothies to make them thicker and to increase the sweetness.
