Inulin and FructoOligoSaccharides (FOS) are soluble prebiotic fibers that promote gut and overall health through their fermentation by gut flora, to yield important metabolites, including lactic acid and the short chain fatty acids acetate, propionate and butyrate. These metabolites help to maintain proper pH in the gut, discourage the growth of unfriendly bacteria, reduce the absorption of toxic ammonia and positively affect bone health by increasing the bioavailability of dietary calcium. Moreover, acetate, propionate and butyrate promote the integrity of the intestinal cells lining the colon and promote healthy lipid metabolism.
Orafti Synergy1 delivers both long-chain and short-chain saccharides to the gut, optimizing the growth of beneficial bacteria.
Usage: Mix 1 scoop into water, juice, protein drink mix, smoothie or other beverages. Take 1 to 2 times per day or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.
No wheat, no gluten, no soybeans, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no peanuts/tree nuts.

This is so sweet-tasting and has such a good texture that I can simply eat it from a spoon, or I can mix it in coffee, oatmeal, etc. You should try to take it at the same time that you eat something with calcium, and it will increase your absorption of calcium. It's also a pre-biotic (I've certainly noticed those effects) and a fiber. This particular formulation - Beneo Synergy 1 - has been tested on young teenage girls, and they found that the girls were less likely to put on excess weight, since this is filling and presumably led them to eat less during the day. But at the same time, it helps girls at that age to absorb calcium and build bone mass, so they're less likely to get osteoporosis years later. I recommend this for all ages.
Good so far.

I like this. But I can only dilute it in water. Anything else seem to clump or up
pleasant, benefits not obvious

Took this (at 3 tsps per day) for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - to improve gut flora. I can't say I noticed any improvement in my condition. The stuff tastes nice - mild caramely sweet. I would stir 1 tsp into porridge as a sweetener.

No side effect for consume everyday
What a difference! I started using Inulin, a pre-biotic, with my probiotic and can't believe the differenc in my colon health! Wish I had been using it years ago!
