What is Inulin?
Inulin is a storage carbohydrate found in many plants. It is found naturally in many vegetables, fruits and cereals. After starch, inulin is the most abundant non-structural polysaccharide found in nature.
BENEO-BBC produce their Inulin from the chicory root of the Witlof (Belgian Endive) plant Cichorium Intybus: a remarkable plant. Witlof is an environmentally sustainable resource, produced for its delightful leaves, served cold in salads or served hot as a garnish. The root of the plant (chicory) is used as a coffee substitute and of course widely for sugar production (fructose).
INUTEC®PFX is an opaque aqueous dispersion (60% active substance), preserved against microbiological deterioration.
The active substance is completely EO-Free(ethylene oxide), non-ionic and natural based.
