What is Inulin Powder (FOS)
Inulin, a fructooligosaccharide (FOS) derived from Helianthus tuberosus, also known as the Jerusalem artichoke, is a soluble prebiotic fiber that is resistant to digestion and may reach the large intestine virtually intact. Inulin may assist in the promotion of overall intestinal health and function. Inulin powder can be added to foods and drinks to enhance the nutritional profile by increasing dietary fiber. Inulin also acts as a thickening agent when mixed with water allowing for improved thickness in beverages as well as improved mouth-feel.

How Does Inulin Powder (FOS) Work?
Commonly found in many vegetables such as artichokes, inulin does not digest in the stomach; instead, it travels to the bowels where bacteria use it as a source for growth. This mechanism makes it useful for regulating the digestive tract and can be used for its laxative properties. Because inulin is a type of fiber, it also results in the "full" feeling that people get after eating. Substituting flour with inulin may result in that feeling much quicker, which may yield to weight loss. Inulin also promotes the growth of healthy bacteria, making it a prebiotic that aids in the creation of probiotics, intestinal flora that help the intestinal tract fight off infection. Inulin may also control blood sugar in that it slows digestion as well as the digestion of carbohydrates. The slowing of carbohydrate digestion allows for more regulated blood sugar levels without causing spikes.
