ChicoFibre Pellet is a co-product of the inulin production process. Chicory roots are cut in small strips and then washed. During washing the inulin is separated and the remaining substance is pressed, dried and pelleted. ChicoFibre Pellet has a high level of pectin and also contains 5% inulin which is an extra benefit.
Due to pelletization of the product, the bulk density is increased. This is an advantage during transportation. It also gives less dust during processing in the factory.
Inulin is a prebiotic that has a positive effect on the growth of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli which results in a good intestinal health. ChicoFibre also contains insoluble fibre which is necessary for a good bowel function.
