Raw, Certified Organic 100% Inulin
Prebiotics are a special class of sweet-tasting fibers which can be used as a healthy alternative to sugar sweeteners. In addition to the valuable fiber, prebiotics have therapeutic benefits as well. By providing food for beneficial intestinal microbials such as bifidus & lactobacillus, prebiotics boost digestive, immune & colon health. The sweet taste in the fiber comes from inulin & oligosaccharides, which are complex, indigestible sugars. Inulin & oligosaccharides are also found in more common foods such as chicory root, wheat, banana, onion, & garlic. Being indigestible, they have almost no real caloric value nor do they raise blood glucose or require insulin for assimilation. Prebiotic sweeteners are excellent for people with candida overgrowth or diabetes.
Source and Processing
The Foundation SuperFood brand prebiotic is a certified organic, raw agave inulin powder extracted from the leaves of the Blue Agave Tequilana Weber plant from Tequila, Mexico. Only the highest quality, carefully ripened plants are used. The agave cacti are grown with first rate organic farming & harvesting methods.
First, the "pina" or core of the leaf is crushed & milled. The resulting fluid is treated with a proprietary natural process that deactivates specific enzymes to prevent fermentation then a high velocity centrifugal juicer extracts the agave nectar at low temperatures with a process that is free of acids or enzymes. This extract process is designed to be gentle enough to preserve all of the natural benefits of the raw, fresh plant.
Bacteria do not thrive in the juice of the Blue Agave Tequilana so it does not need to be pasteurized or sterilized, nor additives used. Instead, the separation is strategically timed to maintain its purity while stimulating the development of the desirable complex sugars. Agave Inulin Powder is made by filtering the nectar through a fine mesh to capture the inulin fiber, which is then sun dried.
