What is it?

Agave Inulin Powder is a natural sweetener and prebiotic fibre derived from the agave plant, specifically the root. Inulin is a type of soluble fibre, meaning it dissolves in water, and it’s a prebiotic because it serves as food for beneficial bacteria in the gut.

The process of extraction involves grinding the agave roots into a fine powder and then extracting the inulin through a process of filtration and drying. The resulting powder is light in colour and has a mildly sweet taste, similar to sugar but with fewer calories and a lower glycemic index, meaning it has less of an impact on blood sugar levels.

Applications and Functionalities

  • Natural Sweetener – Agave Inulin Powder is often used as a natural sweetener in various food and beverage products. It provides sweetness without the sharp spikes in blood sugar levels associated with regular sugar, making it suitable for individuals looking to manage their blood sugar or reduce their calorie intake.
  • Prebiotic Fibre –  As a prebiotic fibre, agave inulin powder serves as food for beneficial bacteria in the gut. These bacteria play a crucial role in maintaining gut health and supporting overall digestion and immune function. By promoting the growth of these beneficial bacteria, inulin helps to maintain a healthy balance of gut microflora.
  • Texture and Mouthfeel – Inulin can also be used as a functional ingredient in food products to improve texture, mouthfeel, and stability. It can help contribute to the creamy texture in certain foods without the need for additional fats or stabilisers.
