Chicory Root Fibers - supporting a healthy gut microbiota and beyond.

Our white paper shows how chicory root fibers are supporting digestive health and well-being. A vast number of microbes live within us, making up the human microbiota. In recent years, a growing number of research studies have focused on the link between these microbes and our health. It became clear that the role of our gut microbiota has reached importance far beyond gut health. Learn what makes prebiotic chicory root fiber special.
