Promote gut health with this amazing prebiotic. Raw and organic.
Nutritionally, Agave Inulin Powder is considered a form of soluble fiber and is categorized as a prebiotic.
Recent studies have shown that Agave Inulin Powder helps feed the good bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus, among others. Not only does it promote restoration of good bacteria but creates a bulk of “puffed” natural fibre that helps promote bowel movement and may help with constipation.
The agave plant is grown for a period of 4 to 8 years until it becomes mature. At the time of the harvest, the "Jimador" cuts off the leaves of the Agave, leaving only the core or "pina". The core is crushed to obtain the sap of the plant which is a sweet juice.
This juice, which is rich in inulin, is filtered and then spray-dried to produce a fine white powder.
Botanical Name: Agave Tequilana Weber Azul
What are prebiotics?
Prebiotics are not any type of bacteria like probiotics. Prebiotics are the food nutrients that feed the good bacteria in our body. Keeping healthy gut bacteria in balance is the key to a healthy immune system.
A healthy gut is the foundation for a healthy metabolism in which toxins are discarded and good food is properly digested providing minerals, vitamins and other vital nutrients to the body.
Adequate bacterial activity in a healthy gut helps absorb the nutrients at the same time that protects the body from harmful overgrowth of bad bacteria including those which cause disease such as Pylori, Salmonella, Clostridium, and others.
Even yeasts such as Candida are fine in small amounts; they only become problematic when their numbers increase uncontrollably in an unhealthy gut environment.
If I want to take inulin as a pre-biotic, how often and how should I have it?
Start with a teaspoon diluted in a glass of water once or twice a day along with your food. You will notice some flatulence during the first week or so due to modification of your intestine flora. This effect will eventually disappear.
Can I use inulin for baking?
Yes, although it will not work as a flour substitute. It can help you thicken your food preparation. Inulin is a spray-dried product and thus it will absorb water quickly. Store well closed because it will harden with humidity.
What's the best storage condition for this product?
The best way to store the product is in a cool dry place. Avoid humid conditions. This product is highly hygroscopic.
