Did you know that there are as many neurotransmitters in our gut as there are in our brain? What do you suppose happens to our moods whenever our tummy’s aren’t happy? Of course you have heard of probiotics and their benefits, but are they even getting through to the gut after passing through the stomach and digestion?
These questions sent us on a mission to find an ingredient to include in The Superfood Diet Powder that would help our intestinal flora flourish.
Organic raw agave inulin powder is a “Super Fiber”, it has a neutral, mildly sweet flavor that not only works as a fiber, but also as a prebiotic to promote complete intestinal health. Inulin has a minimal impact on blood sugar, making it generally considered suitable for diabetics and potentially helpful in managing blood sugar.
Inulins are a group of naturally occurring sugars produced by many types of plants. They belong to a class of carbohydrates known as fructans. Inulin is used increasingly in foods, because it has unusual nutritional characteristics. There is solid evidence for its efficacy as a prebiotic to promote intestinal health, and in products for diabetics, inulin can be a useful sugar substitute. Organic Inulin from agave has the added benefit of being very soluble in cold water, meaning it can be incorporated into beverages, bakery products, dairy products like cheese and yogurts and used as a healthy fat substitute with regard to taste and texture, but without the high calories.
Raw Agave Inulin is extracted from 100% Organic Blue Tequilana Weber Agave. This species of blue agave is well known for its use in the production of premium Tequila and agave nectar and is also an excellent source for inulin. The inulin is extracted from the blue agave plant through a gentle enzymatic process. In order to produce 1 pound of inulin, 6 pounds of agave are required.
Some possible benefits of raw organic Agave Inulin powder may include:
● Prebiotic & probiotic promoter
● Improving texture and consistency of low fat foods
● Enhancing calcium absorption
● Low glycemic
● Reducing caloric content in foodstuffs
● Helping promote healthy weight loss
