Inulin Introduction

Inulin is a soluble fiber produced by many types of plants, including wheat, onion, bananas, garlic, asparagus, sunchoke and chicory. Just like starch, Inulin is a way that is used by these plants to reserve energy. Industrially, it is most often extracted from sunchoke and chicory root. It is a group of polysaccharides that are primarily long chains of fructose with a few glucose units. Inulin is considered as a functional food ingredients since it can affect physiological and biochemical processes in human beings, resulting in better health and reduction in the risk of many diseases. The soluble fiber is often incorporated into processed foods to add fiber, bulk and a sweet flavor. Inulin can also be used for the preparation of oligofructose and fructose syrups.

Botanical Source Of Inulin: Chicory and Sunchoke root

Chicory, of the dandelion family, is a biennial plant that grows as a weed in its native Mediterranean. It grows as a rosette of irregularly-toothed basal leaves in the first year after sowing. Then, in the second year, leafless stems emerge with bright blue daisy-like flowers scattered along their length. Its leaves are sometimes used as salad greens, and the roasted roots are ground and added to coffee or used as a coffee substitute.

Sunchoke, also known as Jerusalem artichoke or sunroot, is a native North American plant in the sunflower family. It has a coarse, 5- to 10-foot tall stem, large leaves with a rough upper surface, bright yellow sunflower-like flowers, and fleshy tubers resembling thin, knotty potatoes. The funny-looking tubers,  with a delicate, artichoke-like flavor, are used as a root vegetable.

Extraction Process

Inulin Benefit and Dosage

1. Support intestinal health (Constipation)

Inulin is a soluble fiber that functions as a prebiotic to promote gastrointestinal tract health by stimulating beneficial bacteria in the gut. Because of certain bond configurations, this dietary fiber survives your stomach acid and intestinal enzymes. It goes to the small intestine, where it mixes with water, ferments, and then becomes food for life-supporting prebiotic bacteria of the large intestine. This bacteria includes things like bifidobacterium and lactobacilli. When you keep bacteria like these fed, they keep out unwanted bacteria like E. coli and Clostridium difficile and fungus like Candida.

What’s more, it has very low glycemic index, it is suitable for many people who are on restricted diets. You can add it to your favorite beverage or food as a thickening agent and sweetener.

Recommended dosage —— 15 g of inulin a day

2. Increase nutrient absorption (calcium and magnesium)

Your body is better able to absorb nutrients from the food you eat because inulin slows digestion. According to studies conducted in the United States and France, inulin can increase calcium absorption by as much as 20 percent and magnesium absorption by up to 12 percent.

Recommended dosage —— 15 g of inulin daily

3. Control Blood Sugar

Inulin slows digestion, including the digestion of carbohydrates. This helps stabilize blood sugar levels after eating by allowing sugar to be released slowly without spiking.

Recommended dosage —— 15 g of inulin daily

Safety

Several studies have demonstrated that inulin, when administered in the diet at high levels, do not result in mortality, morbidity, target organ toxicity, reproductive or developmental toxicity, or carcinogenicity.

The only basis for limiting use of such fiber in the human diet relates to gastrointestinal tolerance. A series of clinical studies has been reported which shows that up to 20 g/day of inulin is well tolerated.

The definition of prebiotic: A prebiotic is a non digestible food ingredient that beneficially affects the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon, that can improve the host’s health. In addition, a prebiotic may repress the growth of pathogens for overall beneficial health.

The definition of probiotic: Probiotics are live micro-organisms which when administered in adequate amounts in the diet, deliver health benefits to the host. Probiotic bacteria are able to suppress potentially pathogenic micro-organisms in the gastro-intestinal track and improve the balance in favour of beneficial micro-organisms.

Prebiotic’s advantages over probiotic in food formulation process: reduce the problem of keeping the organisms alive during transit through upper gastro-intestinal tract as well as during storage.

About Bifidobacteria: Among all the micro-organisms in human gastro-intestinal tract (GIT), bifidobacteria are believed to have the most beneficial effects for improving the gastro-intestinal health. Bifidobacteria can improve the host immune functions by suppression the activity of harmful bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Clostridium perfrigens and protect the GIT against colon tumourigenesis by mutagenic and carcinogenic factors.
