Inulin, a fructooligosaccharide (FOS), is a soluble prebiotic fibre that is resistant to digestion and reaches the large intestine essentially intact. Intestinal probiotic bacteria consume Inulin and in turn, produce the short-chain fatty acids that nourish the cells lining the colon. Inulin thus helps to maintain intestinal health and function. Inulin has a pleasant flavour that adds a mild sweetness to foods and drinks, but has a very low glycemic index and will not negatively impact serum glucose levels.

The body normally maintains a balance of "friendly" flora in the intestines; unfortunately factors such as improper diet, stress, gastrointestinal problems, and use of antibiotics may disrupt this delicate balance.
Scientific research conducted in Japan has shown that FOS are selectively used by friendly flora such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.
