Inulin helps to reduce cholesterol levels in the blood and to control blood sugar. It is really useful for improving the absorption of precious minerals like magnesium and calcium and also for attenuating any food intolerances such as lactose intolerance. It also encourages the proliferation of friendly intestinal flora which protects against the development of pathogenic flora, which can cause gastrointestinal disturbances and disturbances of the urogenital tract.
Specifically inulin is a reserve plant polysaccharide made up of chains which man cannot digest because they have no specific enzymes. The bacteria which occupy the colon, metabolising the inulin, produce short-chain fatty acids which lower the pH which is already naturally acid, thus blocking the proliferation of potentially damaging bacterial cells.
Rich in fibres and protein, it is a detoxifying food because of its mildly hypotensive and diuretic action. It is also recommended in cardiac disease, high blood pressure, edemas and hepatic cirrhosis.
Because it is easy to digest, rice does not tire the stomach.
It contains vitamins: B1, B2, B3 and folic acid.
The minerals it contains include iron, zinc, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.

Thanks to its constituents it stimulates the metabolism and is thus ideal for anyone who loves to keep in shape.
Very rich in starch and fibre, it has a prevalently energy nutritional function. During cooking it absorbs up to 300% of water, thus considerably lightening the glycaemic load. It contains minerals such as potassium, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, selenium, calcium, iron and zinc. It contains vitamins: B1, B2, B3 and RETINOL (vitamin A). It is also rich in essential aminoacids.
Thanks to its constituents it can bring benefits for the mind and memory. It also has an energy power and is thus suitable for people recovering after a long illness.
