Product Story & background
The healthiest of all agave products. This product acts like a strong laxative and added fiber to improve digestion.
Organic agave inulin powder is a “Super Fiber” that has a neutral, clean, mildly sweet flavor that not only works like fiber, but also as a prebiotic to promote complete intestinal health. Inulin has a minimal impact on blood sugar, making it generally considered suitable for diabetics and potentially helpful in managing blood sugar.
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. There is solid evidence for its efficacy as a prebiotic to promote intestinal health, and in products for diabetics, inulin can be a useful sugar substitute. Organic 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 healthy fat substitute with regard to taste and texture, but without the high calories.
Our raw Agave Inulin is extracted from 100% Organic Blue Tequilana Weber Agave. This species of blue agave is well known for its use in the production of premium Tequila and agave nectar (a naturally low glycemic index sweetener) and is also an excellent source for inulin. The inulin is extracted from the blue agave plant through a gentle enzymatic process. In order to produce 1 pound of inulin, 6 pounds of agave are required.
Inulin has been called a functional ingredient because it can mimic fat, it is slightly sweet and it is totally water soluble. This soluble fiber helps your body uptake iron, calcium and nutrients while improving your intestinal function. Inulin makes you shed fat, helps you to eliminate sweetness and it adds fiber to your diet.
The agave pina is squeezed at a room temperature. The raw juice that comes out is spray dried to make a powder. The powder is then purified with filters to make the fiber content 90% and uniform.
