    FYI, this is what the manufacturer has told me about their Organic powdered Inulin product…

    Hello Tyson,

    Currently it is 100% Blue Agave sourced. We don’t have a Chicory source. Sorry

    Thank you for your inquiry,

    Is there a problem with that? Surely its just an extract in the same way as citrus bioflavonoids shouldn’t cause a reaction because of there source?

    I know blue agave is used as a sweetener, so I’d suspect that this source is more sugary than chicory root or garlic inulin. But I’m not an expert on such things.

    Don’t take this. I did for a week and it definitely causes candida to grow. It was the Now foods brand.

    An alternative product is the inulin that standard process makes. There are many other brands that make chickory root inulin as well.

    Thanks, raster!!

    So, I admit I’m a bit confused still about inulin in general.

    Able says that “raw chicory root” is the #1 best source of inulin that you can take in order to grow friendly good bacteria. But, there is also discussion about NOT taking powdered inulin because it grows the candida. So… Am I to assume that inulin *in general* should be avoided because it might be derived from blue agave, for example? And instead buy a chicory root sourced brand of inulin powder? Because I haven’t been able to find raw chicory root except in the form of bark like from a tree…
