Prebiotics come from the plant foods that we eat and are a type of indigestible, insoluble, fiber.
This specific type of fiber is called oligosaccharides or inulin. Prebiotics withstand the digestive enzymes and gastric acids of the stomach without being broken down and enter into the intestinal tract where they become nutrient sources for the probiotics that reside on our gut.
This recipe is full of prebiotic fiber to feed your microbiome!Print
