Insulin and Inulin in Healthy Foods


A visitor wrote me and asked why Entenmann's foods have insulin in them. The answer is that they don't! They have INULIN - which is a healthy fiber found in healthy fruits and vegetables.

Inulin is a GREAT source of healthy fiber, something all of us need in our diets to keep our bodies working properly. Normally in nature inulin is found in asparagus, garlic, artichokes and other healthy vegetables and fruits. Inulin doesn't affect your blood sugar levels, helps promote healthy bacteria, and even helps your body absorb calcium!

A study done by the Children's Nutrition Research Center in Houston, Texas found that teenage girls who were fed inulin increased their calcium absorption by a full 20%! With calcium being very critical for bone health, this is something all of us should pay attention to.

So if you see a food product that has inulin in it, rejoice! You should definitely find ways to include inulin *naturally* in your diet, but if you get extra inulin in the treats that you endulge in as well, you get a double bonus.
