Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Helianthus tuberosus
Production: The root is washed and cut, then inulin is extracted, refined, evaporated, and crystallized.
Qualities: Inulin is considered a prebiotic fiber. It is not actually absorbed in the stomach, but functions in the bowels where beneficial bacteria are able to use it to grow and proliferate. It supports the growth of bacteria associated with improving bowel function and general health.
Dietary fibers such as inulin are known to enhance gut health, curb appetite, help maintain heart health by influencing lipid metabolism, and improve bone density by increasing calcium and magnesium absorption.
Other plants that naturally contain high amounts of inulin include chicory, wheat, onions, leeks, bananas, garlic, asparagus and Jerusalem artichokes. Beyond its prebiotic properties, Jerusalem artichokes are rich in iron, potassium, vitamin C, and B.
Common Use: Inulin has a slightly sweet taste with a low glycemic index making it a great sugar replacement for people with candida and diabetes. Use in baked foods, raw foods, cereals, bars, dressings, smoothies, etc.
It can also be used as a dietary supplement or prebiotic formulation.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container. Refrigeration not required.

I’ve been using your organic inulin powder for a few years now and my husband and I actually add a teaspoon to our daily morning coffee. It contributes the benefits of probiotics without changing the taste of the coffee.
I was looking for Jerusalem Artichoke as a prebiotic. Searching the web I came across OrganicMatters and was blown away that a business like this existing Nelson. They have so many amazing products and the prices can’t be beat. I ordered in on a Saturday, they shipped Monday and I received my order in Penticton on Tuesday. I am so thrilled to have found you!!!!
