Agave Inulin Powder
Dietary fibre, natural thickener and pre-biotic
Inulin from Agave is increasingly used in health foods because it has unusually adaptable characteristics as a functional food with a midly sweet flavour.
A healthy gut is the foundation for a healthy metabolism in which toxins are discarded and good food is properly digested providing minerals, vitamins and other vital nutrients to the body. Adequate bacterial activity in a healthy gut helps absorb the nutrients at the same time that protects the body from harmful overgrowth of bad bacteria including those which cause disease such as Pylori, Salmonella, Clostridium, and others. Even yeasts such as Candida are fine in small amounts; they only become problematic when their numbers increase uncontrollably in an unhealthy gut environment.
Recent studies have shown that Agave Inulin Powder helps feed the good bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus, among others. Not only does it promote restoration of good bacteria but creates a bulk of “puffed” natural fibre that helps promote bowel movement and helps with constipation.
While Agave Inulin is a versatile food ingredient, it also has health benefits: Agave Inulin increases calcium absorption, while promoting the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Nutritionally, it is considered a form of soluble fiber and is categorized as a pre biotic.
