What is Inulin?
Inulin, also known as inulin, whose chemical name is the aggregation of fructose, which is extracted from the feverfew such as Jerusalem artichoke tubers or chicory, is a mixture of fructo-oligosaccharides and polysaccharides. It has a clear molecular formula (C6H12O6) n, is composed of fructo-oligosaccharides (2<n<10) and polysaccharides (10<n<60), an outstanding representative of soluble dietary fiber.
Fructo-oligosaccharides can effectively proliferate the bifidobacteria, lower blood lipids, improve lipid metabolism and immune function in human body. Polysaccharide is an excellent water-soluble dietary fiber, after intake it can increase the body intake of dietary fiber, prevent constipation with colon cancer, lower blood cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels. Inulin, a high quality water-soluble dietary fiber and prebiotic, is the seventh human nutrients after carbohydrate, protein, fat, minerals, vitamins and water. Jerusalem artichoke and chicory are the best raw materials for producing inulin, because of their high inulin content, generally as high as 60% to 70% of the tuber dry weight. The security level of water-soluble dietary fiber extracted from inulin is the highest recognised in Europe.

How Inulin works:
Inulin is not digested or absorbed in the stomach. It goes to the bowels where bacteria are able to use it to grow. It supports the growth of a special kind of bacteria that are associated with improving bowel function and general health. Inulin decreases the body's ability to make certain kinds of fats.
Modern recommendation for inulin intake is between 5 and 8 grams per day.
Inulin seems to be safe when used appropriately. The most common side effects occur in the stomach. Using too much inulin causes more stomach problems.
