Inulin - From traditional food source to an all-round raw material

ZFL, Internationale Zeitschrift fur Lebensmittel Technik, Marketing, Verpackung und Analytik 43(11-12): 732, 734, 737-738
Inulin - From traditional food source to an all-round raw material
The new Benelux firm Benuline Nederland BV extracts inulin from chicory roots on an industrial scale, using simple slicing and diffusion with hot water followed by cooling crystallization and washing. Inulin is colourless and odourless, and has a pleasant slightly sweet taste; it is moderately soluble in water and acts as a gel-forming agent at concentration >30%; it is also a foam stabilizer and texturing agent.
