Gastrointestinal Toleration of Inulin Products

2014-08-27 03:20:03 | BioPortfolio


The intake of inulin products has been linked to multiple health benefits which has lead to inulin fortification in food products.

The investigators hypothesis that doses of up to 10 grams of inulin products should be well tolerated and not result in a significant increase in gastrointestinal symptoms.
