Organic Agave Inulin is extracted from 100% Organic Blue Tequilana Weber Agave. Agave, known throughout the world as the source of Tequila and a naturally low-glycemic index sweetener is also a source for Inulin (FOS). We have developed a way to tap this source through a gentle enzymatic process. Inulin is a "Super Fiber" that has a neutral, clean flavor and a multitude of functional and nutritional properties which may be used to formulate innovative, healthy foods for today's consumers.
Inulins are a group of naturally occurring sugars produced by many types of plants. They belong to a class of carbohydrates known as fructans. Inulin is used increasingly in foods, because it has unusual nutritional characteristics. Inulin has a minimal impact on blood sugar, making it generally considered suitable for diabetics and potentially helpful in managing blood sugar-related illnesses. Agave is richer in fructans than the chicory. In order to produce a kilo of inulin, 6 kilos of agave are required.
Inulin from agave has the added benefit of being very soluble in cold water, meaning it can be incorporated into beverages, bakery products, dairy products like cheese and yogurts and used as a fat replacer. There is solid evidence for its efficacy as a prebiotic to promote gut health, and in products for diabetics, inulin and fructose are useful sugar substitutes.
