Chicory root fibres
Chicory root fibres are natural dietary fibres extracted from the roots of the chicory plant. Depending on their chain length, they are also called inulin, oligofructose or fructooligosaccharides. They are well-appreciated ingredients in the food industry, due to their proven beneficial prebiotic effect, along with their taste and texture enhancing qualities. The health effects that chicory root fibres are being studied for, include digestive health, blood glucose management, bone health, weight management, immunity and more.
CEFI (Comité Européen des Fabricants d’Inuline) is a non-profit organization representing the major producers of chicory inulin in the world: Beneo, Cosucra and Sensus. These recognized industry leaders have joined forces as European association and cooperate on regulatory topics in the area of health, nutrition and sustainability both in the EU and in other regions. Additionally, CEFI stands for a sustainable cultivation of chicory as a source of chicory root fibres.
