* *ADVISORY* *Patients with fructose intolerance or irritable bowel syndrome should avoid inulin. The FODMAP diet, originally developed to treat irritable bowel syndrome, recommends complete avoidance of inulin.
DOSAGE:Start slowly with 500 mg (1/2 gram) daily, and increase very slowly to a maximum dose of 20 grams daily.
CONCLUSION: We conclude that inulin is a safe, effective product for preventing blood sugar spikes. Inulin shows some promise for decreasing appetite, cravings, and improving the intestinal microbiome, but more research is required for a stronger recommendation. If you do elect to try it, make sure to tell your doctor, and observe carefully for any adverse effects.
