Healthy Nutrition

It is a diet rich in vitamins, well balanced, low-fat, rich in roughages, low in calorie, unrefined and without chemicals. Rich in roughages is more desirable a quality than low in calorie, unrefined and without chemicals.

Your Yoghurt Creamier

Apart from providing additional roughage without affecting the taste of food, inulin will make your yoghurt creamier without adversely affecting viscosity and texture. Inulin will as well depress the volume of your bread and bakery products.

Our Demand for Roughage Enriched Products

Inulin is therefore a raw material for food which responds to our demand for roughage enriched products. The mouthfeel and creaminess of certain products like milk is enhanced. And finally, inulin will improve the crust, color and melting properties of your food while at the same time it will stimulate bifidus flora in the human body.
