I do eat garlic onions and asparagus for inulin and I have avacados, chicory coffee, buckwheat, and teff as prebiotics too. I’m just not sure how much I need of it all to have enough food for my good bacteria (I just moved up to 60 Billion CFUs of megafood), so I wanted a supplement to add in just in case I’m not taking in enough prebiotics/inulin. On a regular day I have 2 servings of asparagus, a full layer of diced onions on top of some brussels sprouts and spinach, at least 3 cloves of garlic, a cup of chicory root coffee and 1/7 of a raster sized loaf of 2/3 teff 1/3 millet bread. I also sometimes have a half cup of buckwheat and when I can afford it, an avacado. Does that sound like enough?
How are your symptoms? If you suffer from bloating, constipation or gas, you might want to ease up on it. Unfavourable species of bacteria feed on many of the same things, and their waste products can create a lot of symptoms attributed to candida. Even beneficial species create gas. If you’re feeling good and all the fibre seems to be helping, then maybe you could keep increasing it if you like. I still think wholefoods are a better option because of the nutrients they contain. Have you tried artichokes? They’re something like 18% inulin. You’ll know what’s good by how you react to it, so just go with your body.
