Dietary fibre, pre-biotic and natural thickener

Inulin from Agave is increasingly used as a soluble fibre in health foods because it has unusually adaptable characteristics as a functional food.

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, which help improve digestion. Nutritionally, it is considered a form of soluble fibre and is categorized as a prebiotic.

Studies have shown prebiotic qualities of this natural product as well as efficient stimulation of growth of bifid bacteria and Lactobacilli in the digestive process. This agave fructan is used as a food ingredient and/or health-promoting ingredient. It can be used as a natural thickener and texturiser. Ideal for food products such as jam, cookies, bread, milk, yogurt and cheese.

The agave plant is grown for a period of 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 spray-dried to produce a fine white powder.
