Imagine… Delicious fiber-rich products
Inulin and oligofructose can be used to increase the dietary fiber content of a wide variety of food products. Dietary fibers are essential in our daily food but our diets rarely contain enough of them. The average adult should consume about 25-30 grams a day. Few of us actually eat more than 15-20 grams daily.
Scientific studies have shown that inulin and oligofructose also stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine, leading to healthier colonic microbiota. This so-called prebiotic effect enhances the bifidobacteria which is especially desirable for infant food, and moreover stimulates short chain fatty acids production in the colon that improve the working of the intestine and ultimately the consumer's well-being.
