EFSA Approved Inulin Regulation of Blood Sugar Claims

  EFSA Approved Inulin can Regulation Blood Sugar 

    The European Commission has recently recognized the following health claims that carbohydrates that are

 difficult to be digested by humans, such as chicory roots (sometimes also known as inulin or fructose) by 

producers, can effectively regulate blood sugar and lower blood sugar reaction.

    Previously, the United States wins the company and some other inulin manufacturers will be able to 

regulate the blood sugar in the scientific evidence submitted to the EFSA, which to some extent, promote the 

reform of the relevant laws and regulations.

    This new regulation is classified as Article 13.5 of the European Union Nutrition and Health Claims Act, 

and after the publication of the Code, the manufacturer may use the following claim that intake of chicory 

root fibers compared to sugary foods and beverages The food and drink can slow the rise in blood sugar.

    In addition to Article 13.5 regulations, General Health claims that Article 10.3 of the Code may also use 

similar claims, namely: to reduce blood sugar levels and maintain blood glucose balance.

    "Inoculation claims that the inulin is claimed to be based on a large number of clinical studies, and other 

scientific studies have shown that chicory roots have a very important role in managing blood sugar," said 

Elaine Vaughan, head of regulatory affairs at Winston. In the use of the claim at the same time, inulin 

manufacturers can also educate consumers, these health information to convey to them.

    Blood glucose response and blood glucose levels are closely related, especially after eating. But not all of 

the food will cause the same blood sugar reaction, the duration of blood glucose peak and the body of 

different food digestion and absorption related. This effect can be determined by the glycemic index (GI). 

The body's digestion and absorption of the low glycemic index is slower, so blood glucose levels rise more 

slowly. It is difficult for the upper digestive tract of the human body to break down the chicory roots into 

monosaccharides, but the microorganisms in the intestine can ferment them. The structure is that this 

ingredient does not affect blood sugar levels. Glucose GI is 100, sucrose is 68, and pure chicory root fiber GI 

is only two.
