PreBiotica | Inulin
Much more than a sweetener! PreBiotica provides improved texture and moisture in recipes and acts as an excellent prebiotic! Unique in its ability to survive harsh stomach acids, PreBiotica inulin can feed healthy gut bacteria thus strengthening your microbiome.
This unique, versatile sweet-tasting ingredient is actually healthful soluble fiber. It’s 50% as sweet as sugar, so it acts as a sweetener. But PreBiotica brings an extra dimension, acting to reduce net carbs while adding fullness, texture and fat-mimetic qualities to recipes.
NonGMO inulin (from chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke or agave plant)
How Do I Use It?
As a mild sweetener, add to recipes as desired.
As a dietary supplement use 1 teaspoon, taken 1-2 times per day, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
PreBiotica dissolves in tepid to hot water.
Replaces table sugar 1:2 (1 tablespoon PreBiotica = 1/2 tablespoon sugar).
Much more than a sweetener, PreBiotica is often used in recipes to replace sugar, fat and even flour. It improves taste, texture and moisture in many foods, and with gelling characteristics it can be used to make low fat cheeses, sauces, soups and table spreads. Melting properties means PreBiotica will aid in the easy creation of frozen desserts.
PreBiotica is a fantastic compliment when using high intensity sweeteners such as stevia or monk fruit – adding bulk/volume and texture!
