◆ Organic jerusalem artichoke inulin powder is a reserve polysaccharide in plants, mainly derived from plants. Jerusalem artichoke has the highest inulin content. The inulin molecule is composed of about 31 β-D-fructofuranose and 1~2 glucopyranose residues, and the fructose residues can be linked by β-2,1-bond. It is a linear linear polysaccharide linked by D-fructose via β(1→2) glycosidic bond. It usually has a glucose residue at the end, and the degree of polymerization (DP) is 2~60, and the average degree of polymerization is DP≤9. Inulin is also known as short-chain inulin, and inulin extracted from natural plants contains both long and short chains. Inulin is highly hygroscopic and has the ability to combine free water to reduce water activity. This can be fully utilized to delay the evaporation of moisture in food processing, prevent product odor, and extend the shelf life and shelf life of food.

Product benefits Organic jerusalem artichoke inulin powder
◆ Control blood lipids
Ingestion of inulin can effectively lower serum total cholesterol (TC) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), increase high-density lipoprotein/low-density lipoprotein ratio, and improve blood lipid status.
◆ Lower blood sugar
it is a carbohydrate that does not cause an increase in glucose in the urine. It is not hydrolyzed into monosaccharides in the upper part of the intestine and thus does not raise blood sugar levels and insulin levels. Studies today have shown that a reduction in fasting blood glucose is the result of short-chain fatty acids produced by oligofructose fermentation in the colon.
◆ Promote the absorption of minerals
it can greatly enhance the absorption of minerals such as Ca2+, Mg2+, Zn2+, Cu2+, Fe2+. It is reported that adolescents consume 8 g/d (long and short-chain inulin-type fructan) for 8 weeks and 1 year, respectively. It was found that both significantly increased Ca absorption, and the body's bone mineral content and density also increased significantly.
◆ Regulates intestinal microflora, improves intestinal health, and prevents constipation
it is a natural, water-soluble dietary fiber that is hardly hydrolyzed and digested by gastric acid and is only used in the colon by beneficial microorganisms to improve the intestinal environment.
◆ Inhibit the formation of toxic fermentation products, protect the liver, prevent colon cancer
After the food is digested and absorbed, it reaches the colon. Under the action of intestinal rot fungi (E. coli, Bacteroides, etc.), many toxic metabolites (such as ammonia, nitrosamines, phenol and cresol, secondary bile acids, etc.) can be produced. ), and the short-chain fatty acids produced by the inulin fermentation in the colon can lower the pH of the colon, inhibit the growth of saprophytic bacteria, reduce the production of toxic products, and reduce the stimulation of the intestinal wall.
◆ Prevent constipation and treat obesity
Dietary fiber reduces the residence time of food in the gastrointestinal tract, as well as increasing the amount of feces, effectively treating constipation. Its weight loss effect is to increase the viscosity of the contents, reduce the speed of food from the stomach into the small intestine, thereby reducing hunger and reducing food intake.
◆ There is a small amount of 2-9 oligofructose in inulin. Studies have shown that oligofructose can increase the expression of cerebral neurotrophic factors in the brain and has a good protective effect on corticosterone-induced neuronal damage. Antidepressant effect.
