So, what is chicory root fiber?

Chicory root fiber is a naturally occurring prebiotic fiber that is extracted from the root of the chicory plant. It has a sweet taste and is commonly used as a low-calorie sweetener and a functional ingredient in a wide range of food products. Chicory root fiber is an excellent source of inulin, a type of soluble fiber that supports digestive health by promoting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. It has been shown to improve blood sugar control, reduce inflammation, and support weight management. With its numerous health benefits and versatile applications, chicory root fiber is a popular choice for health-conscious consumers and food manufacturers alike.
