Each serving provides 3g of inulin fiber powder.
What are the properties of Inulin?
Inulin is a carbohydrate which can be chemically classified in the fructan or fructosan family.
Inulin can be found in nature, specifically in plants, fungi, and bacteria. It has a low fat percentage and it is included in many processed foods due to its properties and benefits for human health.
Inulin and its prebiotic action
The consumption of fructans reduces the serum triglycerides and also cholesterol in healthy volunteers with hyperlipidemia. Inulin regulates the intestinal flora, producing effects on the gut function, such as a reduction of intestinal pH, relief of constipation, increased stool weight and frequency. (1)
Inulin and diabetes
Supplementation can significantly reduce the risk of suffering type 2 diabetes. Weight loss is the major factor in reducing risk of developing type 2 diabetes.(2)
A study was conducted on the effectiveness of inulin supplementation within a diet plan to achieve weight loss and thus prevent the risk of developing diabetes. The results of the study support the role of fermentable fibers in modifying two key factors of the development of diabetes: weight control and the ectopic fat deposition. Inulin, and possibly other fermentable carbohydrates, could be potentially effective for this. (3)
Inulin and cardiovascular health
The consumption of inulin-type fructans improves the lipid profile. Generally, the mechanisms vary according to the physiological condition of the person and the type of diet to which the inulin-type fructans are added. Therefore, inulin can be used for the prevention and/or treatment of cardiovascular diseases. (4)
Inulin and digestive health
The fermentation of inulin-type fructans in the large intestine is a selective process; Bifidobacteria (and possibly some other genera) are mainly stimulated to grow, which produces significant changes in the composition of the intestinal microflora, by increasing the number of potentially health-promoting bacteria and/or reducing the number of potentially harmful species. Both oligofructose and inulin are prebiotic. (5)
