PROPERTIES

  • PREBIOTIC EFFECT
    • Due to the Carbon 2 anomeric configuration, fructans resist hidrólisis by digestive enzimes, which are specific for glicosidics links, therefore the fructans are identified as non-digestible oligosacarides. Due to the minimal hidrólisis that fructants suffer from the time they are ingested until they reach the large bowel, the carbohidrates go through the digestive system without being digested until they reach the colon. Being a selective sustrate for a limited number of good bacteria for the colon (bifidbacteria and lactobaciles), its growth is stimulated and therefore is able to alter the colonic microflora to a potentially healthier population.
  • BIOAVAILABILITY
    • Increses bioavaliability and thus, calcium and magnesium absortion, resulting in clear health benefits, like Increasing bones strenght and reducing osteoporosis development risks.
  • SOLUBLE FIBER
    • Increses bioavaliability and thus, calcium and magnesium absortion, resulting in clear health benefits, like Increasing bones strenght and reducing osteoporosis development risks.
  • MINIMAL CALORIC CONTENT
    • Due to the fact that agave inulin is non-digestible and it only has 1 – 2 Kcal/gr, it is highly used in low calorie and suplement foods formulation.

PRODUCTION PROCESS BRIEF DESCRIPTION

Agave juice is extracted from the Tequilana Weber Blue Agave by a diffuser method. Once agave juice is extracted, it is clarified by filtration until a clear and suspended solids-free agave juice is obtained. It is then concentrated by evaporation at 62 Brix, to be finally dried in a spray dryer and packaged as powder agave inulin
