WHat is Inulin?

Extracting Nature From Scientific Research...

Inulin is a naturally occurring polysaccharides produced by many types of plants, and often commercially extracted from Jerusalem Artichoke. Inulin is a polydisperse fructan with a degree of polymerization (DP) of 2 to 60 consisting mainly of D-fructose joined by β-(2→1) linkages with a terminal D-glucose residue. The fructose molecules of inulin are linked together in a way that cannot be digested in the small intestine, they travels to the lower intestinal tract where it functions as a prebiotic, or food source for the beneficial bacteria. Inulin also has a pleasant flavor that adds a mild level of sweetness but has a very low glycemic index and will not negatively impact serum glucose levels. Inulin can be used to replace fats and to provide and enhance texture or mouth feel of produced foods. In 2018 the United States Food and Drug Administration listed inulin as an approved “dietary fiber” that can be used to improve the nutritional value of many types of manufactured food products.

How it all Started

We Have The Vision For A Better World.

The concept for Intrinsic Organics began almost 10 years ago when our visionary leader, Dave Erlebach discovered the variety of uses for Jerusalem Artichoke.  Intrigued by the growing demand for organic prebiotic fiber ingredients for use in food, beverage, and dietary supplements, he decided to be the first producer of 100% organic Inulin grown and produced in the United States.

In 2016, we began scaling our organic farm operations and completing the design of our manufacturing process and facility. With the completion of the manufacturing facility in 2018, and the organic farm scaled to over 500 acres of organic Jerusalem Artichoke, we began commercial operations. Today we produce OprJA™ a 100% Organic prebiotic fiber (from Inulin), and the highest quality 100% organic inulin powder and liquid for the market.

Please let us help you in the creation of organic products for consumers who deeply care about their food and beverage choices and ingredients they consume.
