It has a neutral taste, making it an excellent addition to various foods without altering their flavor profile significantly. Additionally, it is low in calories and can help promote digestive health by regulating bowel movements and reducing constipation. As a prebiotic fiber, it also supports the growth and maintenance of beneficial gut bacteria. Its versatility and health benefits make it a popular choice in various food products, including baked goods, snacks, and supplements.
