Inulin: functional and physiological properties

Food ingredients Europe: conference proceedings: 154-156
Inulin: functional and physiological properties
Dried inulin extracted from chicory root (produced by Cosucra SA under the brand name Fibruline) consists of fructose polymers. Functional properties (solubility, dispersibility, viscosity, water activity and stability) and physiological properties (digestibility and fibre-like effect) are discussed.
