As a soluble fiber, chicory inulin is a perfect ingredient for instant beverages, soy drinks and flavored waters, particularly those that could be classified as ‘functional’. Chicory inulin is highly soluble and also gives beverages extra body. 

Its neutral to sweet taste can enhance the sweetness of high intensity sweeteners while masking for example a bitter or metallic aftertaste. Its colorless appearance and minimal impact on viscosity also contribute to inulin’s widespread use in beverages.
