What is Inulin?
Inulin is a water-soluble fibrous carbohydrate found in pulses, predominantly lentils and chickpeas. This highly beneficial fibre has recently been featured on the BBC’s programme with Angela Rippon, ‘How To Stay Young’.
Why use Inulin Powder?
Inulin offers a range of benefits, particularly within digestive health. Considered a prebiotic, Inulin helps the good bacteria in the gut produce a number of nutrients which are essential towards human health. Recently, the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) backed inulin as a fibre that can better bowel function and health.
More recently, inulin fibre from either chicory or Fructo-Oligosaccharide (FOS) has been granted an approved health claim from EFSA linking this non-digestible carbohydrate to improved blood glucose response.
This versatile powder can be used in baking to preserve moisture, mixed with water and heated to make a syrup, or added to smoothies and shake to increase fibre intake.
