Inulin, a fructooligosaccharide (FOS), is a soluble prebiotic fibre that is resistant to digestion and reaches the large intestine essentially intact. Intestinal probiotic bacteria consume inulin and in turn, produce the short-chain fatty acids that nourish the cells lining the colon. Inulin thus helps to maintain intestinal health and function. Inulin has a pleasant flavour that adds mild sweetness to foods and drinks, but has a very low glycemic index and will not negatively impact serum glucose levels.
How to use: Take 1 level teaspoon 1 to 3 times daily. Mix into your favourite beverage or food. Begin with 1 teaspoon a day and slowly increase dosage to limit GI discomfort.Last Updated: 2016-09-13 13:31:14
