Recent evidence suggests that the prebiotic effect might also be relevant as the changes in gut microbiota could prevent the development of low-grade inflammation and type 2 diabetes associated with obesity. Their low glycemic response make chicory inulin and oligofructose suitable ingredients in products for diabetics. They can be used as sugar and starch replacer (on their own or in combination with other ingredients) in a large variety of products to lower the glycemic response of such food products.
Their dietary fiber properties (e.g. lowering blood lipids related to heart health) are also useful for the development of such products.
