What Is Inulin
Inulin is obtained from chicory root by spray drying after removing protein and minerals. Inulin is a functional fructan and the most soluble dietary fiber.
As a purely natural functional ingredient, it is approved as a nutritional supplement in more than 40 countries in the world. It is widely used in dairy drinks, low-fat and low-calorie foods, baked goods and healthy foods.
1. Control Blood Lipids
Intake of inulin can effectively reduce serum total cholesterol (TC) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), increase the ratio of high-density lipoprotein/low-density lipoprotein, and improve blood lipid status.
2. Lower Blood Sugar
Inulin is a carbohydrate that does not cause an increase in glucose in urine. It will not be hydrolyzed into monosaccharides in the upper part of the intestine, so it will not increase blood sugar levels and insulin content.
3. Promote Mineral Absorption
Inulin can greatly improve the absorption of Ca2+, Mg2+, Zn2+, Cu2+, Fe2+ and other minerals.
4. Improve Intestinal Health
The intake of inulin can enhance gastrointestinal motility, improve gastrointestinal function, increase digestion and appetite, and improve immunity.
5. Inhibit The Formation Of Toxic Fermentation Products
The metabolic activity of inulin can inhibit the production of toxic substances, increase the frequency and weight of bowel movements, accelerate the excretion of carcinogens, and produce short-chain fatty acids with anti-cancer effects, which is beneficial to the prevention of colon cancer.
6. Prevent Constipation And Treat Obesity
Inulin oligosaccharides are difficult or not to be digested and absorbed by the body, so the energy value provided is very low.
There is a small amount of 2-9 oligofructose in inulin. Studies have shown that oligofructose can increase the expression of nutritional factors in brain nerve cells, which has a good protective effect on corticosterone-induced neuron injury and has a good antidepressant effect.
