INULIN

March 31, 2015

Not to be confused with insulin, inulin is a group of naturally occurring polysaccharides (carbohydrate molecules) produced by many types of plants. It is used by some plants as a means of storing energy and is typically found in roots. Found in more than 36,000 species of plants, including wheat, onion, bananas, garlic, asparagus, and chicory, inulin is used as an energy reserve and for regulating cold resistance to withstand cold and drought during winter periods.
