Inulin is a soluble dietary fibre, becoming a very popular food supplement due to its high fibre content, low calorific content and several more potential health benefits. Inulin is also known as Fructo-Oligosaccharide (FOS). FOS is a PreBiotic that can aid digestive health by promoting beneficial bacteria in the gut.
The digestive tract contains between 15,000 and 36,000 species of bacteria, with much of the bacteria having the potential to be beneficial to our health. Good bacteria provides many health benefits and Inulin supports good bacteria growth.
Inulin is non-digestible meaning it bypasses the stomach and small intestine. Inulin goes to the large intestine where it promotes healthy bacteria growth especially Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli.
