Chicory inulin has been part of our daily diet for hundreds of years as you find it in many fruits and vegetables such as bananas, onions and wheat. The root of the chicory plant (Chicorium intybus) is the natural source of Frutafit inulin and Frutalose oligofructose.
The full range of Sensus chicory inulin and oligofructose products qualifies as natural according to the ISO 19657:2017 guideline. About a year after ISO set a new guideline for food ingredients to be called 'natural', chicory root fibre was the first dietary fiber to achieve this verification. Chicory root fibre is today the only dietary fibre that is verified as natural according to ISO.
Chicory inulin is a functional food ingredient that can replace sugar and fat while improving taste and mouthfeel. It also promotes digestive health by enriching the fibre content of food. Moreover, it has a prebiotic effect, stimulating the production of beneficial bacteria in the colon. Chicory inulin is recognised as the only plant-based prebiotic by the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP).
Because chicory inulin has a low caloric value and promotes satiety, it can make a significant contribution to weight management. It even stimulates calcium absorption, resulting in improved bone health.
Sensus chicory inulin is an extremely versatile product that improves taste and texture while providing significant health-promoting benefits. These ingredients are currently used in many applications, including dairy, bakery, cereals and cereal bars, infant nutrition, beverages, confectionery, ice cream, savory and healthcare nutrition.
These applications are just few of the many possibilities with chicory inulin. New and innovative applications for chicory inulin are constantly being found. Because chicory inulin and chicory oligofructose are colorless and have a neutral to sweet taste, they can be used in these products without affecting the appearance, texture or flavor.
