What is Inulin?
Inulin is a starchy carbohydrate found in pulses, predominantly lentils and chickpeas. This amazing fibre has recently been featured on the BBC’s programme with Angela Rippon, ‘How To Stay Young’.
Benefits on Inulin
Inulin offers a range of health benefits. Considered a prebiotic, Inulin is a carbohydrate that good bacteria in your digestive system utilises to produce a number of nutrients which are beneficial towards human health.
How can Inulin be used?
Inulin is also used in baking to preserve the moisture in cakes and biscuits, but also as a binding agent. Inulin can also be used as syrup, by mixing it with water and heating. Finally, this versatile fibre can be used in smoothies to make them thicker and more satiating.

Arrived promptly and is exactly what I hoped. Goes Well With:Most things from drinks to pancakes
Great service guys. Very impressed with the delivery time, quality of packaging etc. Started using Inulin immediately - very easy to use - I just added it to my bowl of breakfast oats. In case you haven't seen the programme with Dr Chris van Tuleken and Angela Rippon (How to stay young), Inulin reportedly helps break down visceral fat if used consistently over a period of about six months. Well worth a try.Goes Well With:Basic porridge made with oats and milk.
The product is good and can be mixed with most things. I find that there are very few instruction either on or inside the pack. How many times a day is it supposed to be taken (once, twice or doesn't matter) this guidance is important to those who are using the product for the first time.
Last time i went on a calorie controlled diet/meal replacement diet i struggled with my bowel movement for days at a time. That was inclusive of having 28g of flaxseed a day. I have now introduced inulin into my diet and my bowel movements are somewhat regular without the constipated/painful feel. This product mixes very well even in water like others have said; i would definitely be buying this agian. thank you myprotein :)Goes Well With:anything liquid
This is very mixable, you don't need a lot of it, in fact even the small scoop suggested once a day can be a sudden change to the body, any rises in fibre can give gas until the body is used to it. Saying that it does actually work as it's meant to, so I would suggest it for anyone that eats a lot or finds it harder to break down protein and carbs, but maybe start with a tiny bit and work your way up.Goes Well With:protein, oats, glutamine, juice
To soon to tell if this product can do what it's meant to do yet. But it was easy to find on this site and easy to order, and the delivery service was quick. Goes Well With:I use Inulin in the morning with what ever I'm having for breakfast and in the evening same again. It does have more of a sweet tast than plain. Which I personally like.
I have been using it for about 3 weeks. It is tasteless, I have with porridge in the mornings. I can not say it is the reason I have lost some weight. I am taking it because of the program How To Stay Young.
Having watched Angela Rippon on the BBC programme, How to Stay Young, I decided to try inulin because although I am fit for my age and not overweight, I suspect that I am carrying too much visceral fat. It was discovered on the programme that this was Angela's problem, picked up on a MRI scan. I do not propose to go to the expense of an MRI scan, so I can only suppose that the inulin is doing me some good! It is tasteless and mixes well in a morning glass of water. A small scoop was provided and I have one scoop per day, so the 500 gram bag should last quite a long time. No side effects - maybe slightly windy for a couple of days.
I mix this with a little apple juice topped up with water and some green powder. It has no taste and seems to vanish once it has mixed in - just making the drink feel slightly smoother. I feel it has benefited my digestion and so far seems to help with low blood sugar slump. I have not rated its effectiveness as it is too early to say what the long term effects are.Goes Well With:Green powder, Udo's Choice wholesome fast food, Fruit juice and probably anything else you want to use it with.
I want inulin and this is the only source of bulk packets I've found yet in UK. It's a coarse powder (small granules), which dissolve in a glass of water fairly easily. It tastes a little bit sweet and I use it to disguise the rather unpleasant flavour of MSM. Stir the inulin in first for better dissolving. I've been taking it for a few months, to feed my gut bugs and I think it will take longer to assess the effectiveness. No change yet and I'm optimistic it will come.Goes Well With:Water and MSM
Inulin is very good to get enough fibres. I put it together (10 g) with with a pound of lowfat fromage blanc and a proteinshake. It tastes good, is good mixible and its the best overnight combi
The product arrived on time and was packaged securely. The Inulin powder is an excellent product.Goes Well With:Cereal, gravy and milk
Using it to help degrade fat stores around abdominal organs. It mixes well and unless a lot is used not sweet. Don't try to eat it on its own.Goes Well With:Cereal
Bought this product to lose internal belly fat. Won't know if it works for at least 6 months Goes Well With:Food
I read about this product and decided to give it a try. It mixes well with all the foods i have tried so far. It has no taste. I gave it 4 stars on effectiveness as the evaluation is on going.. All I can say I have used it daily for 2 weeks with no adverse effects. Hopefully in about a month or so I should see some benefit.Goes Well With:Porridge, a variety of cereals, all diluteable drinks. Can be sprinkled on to many foods as well
Great taste, easy mix.product 100%. Fast delivery. Many thanks.Goes Well With:Anything.
Angela Rippon recently mentioned on TV that Inulin results in reducing internal body fat. If this actually works then I hope the NHS make available on prescription! This product is also good for keeping one regular and so I have been able to stop using a laxative. It's a little difficult to dissolve so I usually put it in my home made smoothies so it gets pulverised during the process.Goes Well With:Smoothies
Arrived swiftly, well packed and seems like a good product.
My family uses this solely for gut health, it works really well. If you are overloading on carbs though...watch out it will very likely make you 'a bit windy😂'. It mixes perfectly in water but we found it was not so great in fruit juice. Feeling much better and more energetic and appetite is definitely controlled. We are taking this in conjunction with tablet form gut bacteria. Would definitely recommend.Goes Well With:Water
Arrived promptly, appears to be good value for money. Tends to harden when mixed with warm food so makes it rather chewy. The taste is OK a little sweet if anything. Just recently started using this so am waiting to see if it's effective or not.
Very pleased with inulin powder Packet comes with a handy measuring scoup. First mixed in water and stirred well to dissolve powder but now mix into porridge. Have taken daily and am very happy with this pre biotic powder.Goes Well With:Water or porridge.. mix well. No unpleasant after taste.
Amazing broad acting prebiotic effects but just make sure you build the dose up gradually if you're new to it to avoid the trumps!! Also I'd recommend you mix it well into other powders as I found adding it by itself to drinks was harder to great a good even mix and to avoid little clumps of inulin.Goes Well With:Other powders
To early to tell how effective it is. Really easy to use. Spoon included. Mixes easily & has no flavour
The product seem fine but the overall result will take time. The amount taken must have some relation to weight and age! The package does not give this information as far as I am aware. It was only when I emptied the contains into a storage container that I found the scoop but how many is required? I look forward to your reply.
I've no idea if this is effective or not. How do you tell? It's good that it doesn't have any taste, but there are no instructions on the pack as to the best way to take it. I put it in my coffee in the mornings but I don't know if the heat from the hot water is doing anything to it in any way. Should I be taking it cold? How soon should I notice any effects? No information at all on the pack.
found Inulin to be very active with the bowel which is good. This calms down after a couple of days. Will be buying again. Only found one issue when mixing was not so good (Turmeric with black pepper and orange juice) we can live with that.Goes Well With:Mixing with most meals no problem.I have put it into pancake batter, fruit crumble ( fruit and crumble topping) chillis , casseroles, cups of tea and coffee. Basically it goes into anything that doesn't move.
Having watched a BBC staying healthy program. This product was good at reducing internal fat around the organs. Not knowing if I did or didn't I decided to try this. It has no taste and I add it to either my cereal in the morning or mix it in my main meal ( gravy). It seems to act as an appetite suppressor too, so win win alround.Goes Well With: Anything
Having only used this product for about two weeks I can only give my initial thoughts. I find it very easy to mix with both hot and cold drinks and porrage. It has no flaver that I can detect. I did find that I felt very bloated and gassy in the first week of taking inulin but thankfully this has now passed. I don't know if it is a coincidence and/or it will last but I have found I am eating less and don't feel as hungry as normal, hopefully I will loose a few pounds. Goes Well With:Coffee, smoothies, porrage.
This is a good product at a good price. Pleasant taste but tends to go lumpy if quickly mixed with water or liquid. So I mix it with my muesli.Goes Well With:Muesli
I have been adding 2 scoops of inulin to plain yoghurt each day. It has helped my "intestinal transit" as they say on tv. No side effects but I don't know whether there have been any major benefits - time will tell.
Hopefully it's reducing my visceral fat. I think it's helping to keep me regular as well.Goes Well With:meusli, porridge.
It's difficult to know whether this works as it reputedly reduces internal body fat. Personally speaking it gave me stomach pains and I had to stop using it. Having said that, there is good evidence for its effectiveness
Have only recently started taking it so its difficult to say how it is affecting me at the moment. I have put 4 stars for rating because I don't know whether it is excellent right now but its certainly not adversely affecting me. It doesn't taste of anything so, for me, that is great because it can go in anything. Goes a bit clumpy when mixing with hot stuff but a vigorous whisk sorts that out. Great price and great service from my protein Goes Well With:porridge
Product arrived very quickly and I have been using it each morning since. I bought the unflavoured and mix in with dry cereal first and then I add soya milk. I have only been using for a fortnight so not really able to evaluate if it is working. I am hoping to reduce my visceral fat so rather early in the process!Goes Well With:Linseeds, oats, granola!
Very early to tell how effective this product is. Bought in response tot he Angela Ripon programme on longevity. Inulin is supposed to help remove visceral fat in the body. No change in weight yet ....Goes Well With:Cereal
To early to tell if its having any effect on visceral fat, but it does loosen the bowels. Goes Well With:Anything
Have only just started to use the product. Seems to be ok. No taste, easy mix or better still added to food. We have experienced a bit of flatulence but assume that once we are used to it that will go. Time will tellGoes Well With:Squash, fruit juice or sprinked onto food
I saw a BBC programme about ageing and the effects on the body, a doctor suggested that exercise alone cannot rid the body of built up internal fat. But that a dietary supplement Inulin was active in that effect, also that inulin occurs naturally in bananas and onions, both of which I eat regularly but in quantities that cannot have a total internal fat reducing effect. I have taken inulin at a rate of just half a measure (the spoon included) with my breakfast, in cereals and porridge. All I can say is that I have moderately exercised and cut out more fat and sugar content items from my diet and I feel fitter and slimmer. I have tried the citing down and exercise before but not had the results as recently with Inulin. As with anything, I would not over consume any supplement so once I get to a satisfactory level of fitness I will reduce the intake of Inulin. For me this has been a great discovery. If you yourself read up on the product ad try it I am confident you will see a benefit.
I have been using this product for the last few weeks and my energy has improved tremendously. It is easy to use and mixes well . I usually spread it on my porage for breakfast.Goes Well With:Cereals or drinks
I heard about inulin on the recent TV programme "How To Stay Young" on the BBC. As I get a bit older I think it`s effectiveness as show in the programme will be helpful to me and my lifestyle. I really like the fact that you don`t need a large amount per day and it`s easy to mix in your daily smoothie or juice or glass of milk, or in fact soup or a stew.
Thought I would give this a try to help reduce fat levels. Only used it for two weeks, so not sure yet if it is working.Goes Well With:Porridge
Easy to use with no taste so can be mixed/added to virtually anything. 3 stars for effectiveness because effects on visceral fat cannot be seen.Goes Well With:Anything
so far so good only been on inulin 2 weeks i think its okayGoes Well With:nutribullet drinks,orange and spinach,all drinks really mixes well
Great product, easy to incorporate with everyday use
Have been taking Inulin for approx 3 to 4 weeks; pleasant texture and no taste. Generally sprinkle on to breakfast cereal and really can't notice it's there. Have lost some weight and don't appear to feel hungry as quickly, even though exercising more. Will definitely buy more when run out of current purchase.Goes Well With:Particularly cereal.
Saw this on a BBC program. Just started using it, fingers crossed that it is really doing me good. I take it in a drink and mix with fruit and soups. Does not alter the taste. Goes Well With:Water, Soup. Mixed fresh fruit. and porridge. Any liquid actually..
Should there have been a measuring scoop in the pack? For dosage it says 1 and a half little scoops, but nowhere does it say what size of scoop. And it doesn't say how often in a day.
Have mixes Inulin with my drinks and have not noticed any taste, my wife has added it to her breakfast and has not noticed any difference in taste either. Well worth a try. Goes Well With:Cool drinks and breakfast
Long term use expected so too early to know full effectiveness. Ask me again in a few months.Goes Well With:Anything
Arrived in good time and well wrapped. I'm now about two weeks into taking it on a daily basis. I found the powder to clog a little in water but with constant stirring it does dissolve completely and is easy to drink. No side effects to speak of so overal a pleasant easy to consume product. Goes Well With:No yet taken it other than dissolved in water but could easily add it to food without the worry of it tainting the taste.
