2018/5/24    来源:    作者:  浏览次数:2226

 What is inulin?


Inulin is a type of soluble fiber found in many plants.

It is a “fructan” meaning that it is made up of chains of fructose molecules that are linked together in a way that cannot be digested by your small intestine.

Instead, it travels to the lower gut, where it functions as a prebiotic, or food source for the beneficial bacteria that live there.

Your gut bacteria convert inulin and other prebiotics into short-chain fatty acids, which nourish colon cells and provide various other health benefits .

Inulin is relatively low in calories, providing 1.5 calories per gram .

Plants containing inulin have been around for a very long time, and some early humans consumed much more inulin than we do today .

Bottom line: Inulin is a soluble fiber found in many plants. Your gut bacteria convert it into short-chain fatty acids, which provide several health benefits.
