What are chicory root fibres?

Chicory root fibres are natural ingredients extracted from the roots of the chicory plant. These soluble dietary fibres are well-appreciated ingredients in the food industry, due to their proven beneficial prebiotic effect, along with their taste and texture enhancing qualities.  
The chicory root is the main commercial source of inulin and oligofructose. These natural ingredients are also present in many other fruits and vegetables. As such, they have been part of the human diet for centuries.
