Alternative inulin sources

Due to several reasons there is currently a shortage of inulin and oligofructose (fructooligosaccharides) worldwide coming from chicory.
Fortunately, there are other alternative and reliable sources of inulin available that have not been affected by the shortage: artichokes and agave.
Although they might be a little bit more expensive, they are a great source of inulin, depending less on on the season and storage. 

Inulin is a type of dietary fiber that provides several health benefits such as improving digestive health, helping control diabetes, and aiding weight loss.
Inulin is wildly used in food & beverage, dairy products, dietary supplements, feed etc.

Plants naturally contain inulin; the main sources are chicory, Jerusalem Artichoke and Agave.
In China, Jurusalem Artichoke is the main raw material for inulin: after washing, crushing, extracting, membrane filtration and spray drying etc. process you get the inulin powder.

Another very interesting source is agave: agave inulin has a mildly sweet and clean flavor. It is extracted from the blue agave plant.
Blue agave inulin is a nutritious sweetener known for potential intestinal health and blood sugar benefits, among others.

In general, inulin has very low impact on blood sugar levels.
