FDA petitioned over inulin as a dietary fiber

Related tags: Dietary fiber

Beneo, Cosucra, and Sensus have submitted a joint Citizen Petition to the FDA requesting the addition of chicory inulin to the list of dietary fiber.

The FDA recently outlined a new definition for dietary fiber​, which defines dietary fiber as either naturally occurring fibers that are intrinsic and intact in plants, or as isolated or synthetic fibers that have demonstrated a beneficial physiological effect.

FDA has, so far, assessed which fibers are “dietary fibers” but chicory root inulin is still under review, according to the company.

The Citizen Petition requests the addition of chicory inulin, encompassing all chicory inulin-type fructans, to be added to the list of dietary fiber accepted in the US. The rationale for this submission is to display the totality of pertinent data that convincingly shows the beneficial physiological effects of chicory root inulin.
