The Nutritional Aspect of Inulin - A Natural Roughage

Updated on November 6, 2008

Healthy Nutrition

Healthy nutrition is food that does not place too great strain on the body, which is balanced without containing any damaging substances, and which can be enjoyed without a bad conscience. 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.

Minimum roughage intake 30g per day

The minimum roughage intake should be 30g per day and the roughage should be made of equal amounts of cereals on the one hand and vegetables, fruits and potatoes on the other.

Inulin is not Hydrolyzed in the Human Intestinal Tract

Inulin is a 1,2-β linked fructose polymer with sucrose at the chain end and an average chain length of eight fructose units. Inulin is contained in plants like salsify, Jerusalem, chicory root and onions. All these edible plants products which can not be hydrolyzed in the human intestinal tract are called fibers. Inulin will stimulate the bifidus flora in the human body and is not harmful to teeth.

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.
