Inulin is a starchy substance found in a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs such as bananas, asparagus, Jerusalem artichoke, jicama, leeks, onions, garlic, and chicory and dandelion root. It is also found in the pina of the agave plant (a cactus). Inulin is a fiber that cannot be broken down by the digestive enzymes in the stomach or small intestine. Therefore, it remains "intact" until it reaches the large intestine where lactobacillus species of bacteria have been shown to preferentially ferment inulin, especially the Bifidus species. These microscopic organisms predominantly live on undigested fiber in our diet and love inulin. This is why inulin is categorized as a "prebiotic". Probiotics are the actual "friendly" bacteria that live in your gut. Prebiotics are substances (fiber) that these organisms like to live on.

Inulin, as it is "digested" by "friendly" gut flora converts to fructooligosaccharides (polysaccharides) and eventually these more complex substances are turned into simple sugars, until finally becoming acids of fermentation (also known as short chain fatty acids such as acetic acid, butyric acid and propionic acid). Energy for the cells lining the intestinal tract comes predominantly from these acids of fermentation/short-chain fatty acids.

Because inulin is a fiber, it has no real caloric value, meaning, it does not convert into calories or energy in the body. However, it is the benefits of fiber and the "feeding" of gut flora that make inulin a nice ingredient.

Wildly Organic by Wilderness Family Naturals' organic inulin has a neutral, clean, mildly sweet flavor. It is not nearly as sweet as sugar, but definitely enhances sweetness when added to foods. There are 10 grams of fiber in a one ounce serving.

How is Inulin used?

Inulin is an ingredient in a number of foods sold in stores near you. Here are some examples:
  • In dairy and non-dairy frozen desserts it is used to improve texture, produce greater satiety from the food, and provide the customer with a prebiotic.
  • Fermented dairy and non-dairy foods such as yogurt and kefir oftentimes have inulin added to them for this very same reason. There are several manufacturers of coconut kefir and coconut yogurt who use our inulin in their products.
  • Many snack bars also contain inulin for the same reasons: as a prebiotic and for satiety.
  • Beverages and smoothies are another place inulin can be used. Inulin is highly soluble (even in icy cold water), and because it dissolves readily and is almost undetected by the consumer, it can be used to increase satiety and add as a prebiotic.
  • Baked goods often have inulin added to them because of its water binding (humectant- the ability to hold moisture) properties as well as its prebiotic properties. Because of this, adding inulin helps baked goods turn out moister and softer.
  • Inulin can also be added to confectionaries, pudding, non-dairy and dairy creamers, table syrups, other bakery items and baby food. Besides its prebiotic properties and effects on satiety, there is a light sweetness and a thickening that it brings. For all these reasons inulin is a common ingredient in low-fat desserts and diet foods.
  • Hot or cold, raw or cooked, inulin can be added to almost anything. Most people eat a few teaspoons to a tablespoon per day, usually by adding it to the food or drinks they prepare.

Great Inulin

I use it in making yogurt and also take it for prebiotic in my diet. I always trust Wildly Organic for their honesty in purity of their products. I hope they never change.

Good product

I like this Wildly Organic agave inulin better than the sunchoke one from a different supplier that I also tried. They both have the desired effect and cost about the same, but although the other one is easier to order and free to ship without buying other products (due to its availability on a well-known gigantic purchasing platform) the inferior one one was sticky on the outside of the bag (that's an issue with inulin and to me indicated a poor packaging process), and the product in the bag started caking long before I was finished with it, also indicating poor packaging in a too-humid environment. Wildy Organic has a superior packaging process (no stickiness) and the product stays powdery. Rather than opening the bag every day, I decant a smaller amount into a glass jar, which lasts about a week at two heaping teaspoons a day.
