Chicory inulin powder is a water-soluble dietary fiber obtained from the chicory root (Cichorium intybus). Almost all of the inulin powder (90%) consists of fructose polymers organized in long chains, joined together by β (2-1) bonds that cannot be digested by the enzymes of the human digestive system. Average chain length: 8-13 monomers.
Inulin has the ability to raise the percentage of Bifidobacteria in the intestinal microbial flora.
Inulin is a source of fiber (89%), no fat (0%) and no added sugars (naturally contains sugars - 8%).
