Inulin is a type of dietary fibre extracted from the roots of the chicory plant (Cichorium intybus). It is a complex carbohydrate and belongs to a group of compounds called fructans. Inulin has gained popularity as a functional food ingredient because of its beneficial properties.
Chicory is a flowering plant whose root accumulates inulin. The root is harvested and the inulin is extracted by washing, drying and milling.
Solubility and taste: inulin is soluble in water, forming a gel-like substance. It is often used as a food additive and, although not sweet, has a mildly sweet taste, making it a useful substitute for sugar in some cases.
Low calorie: inulin is considered a low-calorie sweetener because it provides fewer calories than traditional carbohydrates. It is therefore sometimes used in products intended for individuals wishing to reduce their calorie intake.
Ingredients: 100% inulin from chicory root (Cichorium intybus).
Use: can be added to juices, yoghurts, cottage cheese. Can be used to add a little fluffiness to baked goods. Daily intake: 1-2 tablespoons.
