Inulin is a prebiotic that supports the skin’s microbiome and skin-friendly bacteria which keep everything balanced. It offers moisturising properties, and is a natural humectant and conditioner.

Inulin is also a form of indigestible dietary fiber that makes one feel fuller for longer, helping control appetite and maintaining blood sugar levels. It is widely used in food as a sweetener and source of soluble fiber.

We love inulin primarily because it allows for a prebiotic in skincare! Using pre- and probiotics in skincare products is very on trend in the skincare industry currently.

Excellent Product

I love the taste (like candy floss), and it works wonders to my gut. Well priced! Will definitely order again.

Chicory Inulin

I love this product, it makes me feel good within a day. I sleep better now, it tastes good and dissolves easily. I just mix with water or add it on my oats.

L.reuteri Yoghurt

I am using this inulin to make my L.reuteri yoghurt and the end product is superior to other inulin's I've tried. It's good to know that it is sourced from chickory. The one I bought under the Dischem brand (undeclared source) yielded a bitter tasting end product.

A Reliable Choice for Digestive Wellness

I recently purchased Inulin online, and I must say, it has been an absolute game-changer for my digestive health. From the moment I placed the order to the point of delivery, the entire experience was seamless, prompt, and utterly reliable.

Quality and Effectiveness
The quality of the Inulin is top-notch. Within a short span of time, I've noticed significant improvements in my digestive system. It's easy to incorporate into my daily routine; I simply add it to my morning smoothie or oatmeal, and I'm good to go.

One of the standout features has to be the consistency of the product. Each package arrives with the same excellent quality, which is reassuring. This has allowed me to make it a regular part of my wellness regime without any second thoughts.

Delivery Experience
The delivery has been faultless every time. The packaging is secure, ensuring that the product arrives in perfect condition. What's more, it always arrives on time, which is particularly impressive given the current logistics challenges many are facing.
