Chicolin-90i is produced from chicory roots. The chicory roots are cut in small strips and the strips are washed. During the process inulin is separated from the strips. The inulin is then refined and dried. Inulin is a non-digestible carbohydrate also called soluble dietary fibre that reaches the colon largely intact and evokes physiological functions, like improving the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal system. Chicolin-90i is produced in a food plant.
