Inulin as a dietary fibre

Ensuring you get enough fibre is important for maintaining normal intestinal function. One type of fibre that is very common both in dietary supplements and as an additive in many foods is inulin. In this article, we will talk more about both dietary fibre and inulin and how they are linked to digestive health and the gut flora.

What is inulin?

Inulin is a type of dietary fibre that passes through the entire upper gastrointestinal tract without being digested. Inulin is only broken down when it reaches the large intestine with the help of enzymes that the good gut bacteria produce. In the intestine, inulin stimulates the reproduction of lactic acid bacteria, for example, the strains Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus paracasei are particularly fond of inulin. These types of fibre, which are burned as fuel for the good bacteria in the large intestine, are also called prebiotics.

Inulin as a dietary supplement

Inulin is a popular fibre supplement and is used in lots of different packaged food products. Since inulin is what is known as a prebiotic, it can be combined with probiotics (a supplement containing good bacteria). Supplements that combine prebiotic fibre with probiotics are also called synbiotics. The fibres are food for the lactic acid bacteria to grow and multiply once in the gut.

Fibre-rich foods

Many of us today get too little fibre in our diets. The Ministry of Health in Singapore recommends that an adult consumes at least 30 grams of fibre per day. However, studies have shown that most adults don’t consume this amount. 

Fibre is a type of carbohydrate found in almost every type of plant food. Therefore, eating a high-fibre diet means that we need to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts/seeds. We can also supplement our diets with prebiotics or synbiotics to get more fibre.

Dietary fibre

Dietary fibre, such as inulin, is found naturally in different types of foods and is extracted from these to be used in dietary supplements. Inulin is usually extracted from chicory root but is also found in Jerusalem artichoke and in different varieties of onions. Other types of fibre that are commonly used as dietary supplements and as additives in different foods are, for example, beta-glucan from oats, pectin from citrus fruits and resistant starch from corn.

A supplement for your gut health

Want more energy and less bloating? It might be time to take better care of your gut. To strengthen or restore the balance in your gut flora, it's important you feed your gut with a daily dose of pre- and probiotics.
