Botanical Name: Agave Tequilana Weber Azul

Dietary fibre, pre-biotic and natural thickener

Inulin from Agave is increasingly used in health foods because it has unusually adaptable characteristics as a functional food with a mildly sweet flavour.

While Agave Inulin is a versatile food ingredient, it also has health benefits: Agave Inulin increases calcium absorption, while promoting the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Nutritionally, it is considered a form of soluble fiber and is categorized as a pre biotic.

More Information

Agave Inulin Powder as Pre-Biotic

Inulin belongs to the group of polysaccharides, which are naturally found in several plants such as Agave or Maguey (Agave Tequilana Weber Azul), Chicory (Cichorium intybus) and Jicama (Pachyrhizus erosus).

Inulin is a mixture of oligo- and polysaccharides. Because of its relative long-chain molecule, this type of carbohydrate is not digested in the upper gastrointestinal track, behaving as a type of fibre. Inulin is used by some plants as a means of storing energy and it is typically found in roots or rhizomes.

Prebiotics are not any type of bacteria like probiotics. Prebiotics are the food nutrients that feed the good bacteria in our body.  Keeping healthy gut bacteria in balance is the key to a healthy immune system.

A healthy gut is the foundation for a healthy metabolism in which toxins are discarded and good food is properly digested providing minerals, vitamins and other vital nutrients to the body. Adequate bacterial activity in a healthy gut helps absorb the nutrients at the same time that protects the body from harmful overgrowth of bad bacteria including those which cause disease such as Pylori, Salmonella, Clostridium, and others. Even yeasts such as Candida are fine in small amounts; they only become problematic when their numbers increase uncontrollably in an unhealthy gut environment.

Recent studies have shown that Agave Inulin Powder helps feed the good bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus, among others.  Not only does it promote restoration of good bacteria but creates a bulk of “puffed” natural fibre that helps promote bowel movement and helps with constipation. 

Jimador in Agave harvest

The agave plant is grown for a period between 4 to 8 years until it becomes mature. At the time of the harvest, the "Jimador" cuts-off the leaves of the Agave, leaving only the core or "pina". The core is crushed to obtain the sap of the plant which is a sweet juice,This juice which is rich in inulin, is filtered and then freeze-dried to produce a fine white powder.

It is wonderful to at last find a product that works. I am very happy with Maretai's Organic Agave Inulin Prebiotic / Dietary Fibre powder. I have tried a few other brands but this one works. I followed the instructions to a 't' and results came straight away. Great work Maretai!!

If I want to take inulin as a pre-biotic, how often and how should I have it?

Start with a teaspoon diluted in a glass of water once or twice a day along with your food. You will notice some flatulence during the first week or so due to modification of your intestine flora. This effect will eventually disappear

Can I use inulin for baking?

 

Yes, although it will not work as a flour substitute. It can help you thicken your food preparation. Inulin is a freeze-dried product and thus it will absorb water quickly. Store well closed because it will harden with humidity.
