Inulin

Also known as Metamucil Clear & Natural, Fiber Choice, and Fiber Choice Weight Management

Inulins are a group of naturally occurring polysaccharides produced by many types of plants, and industrially is most often extracted from chicory. The inulins belong to a class of dietary fibers known as fructans. Inulin is used by some plants as a means of storing energy and is typically found in roots or rhizomes. Most plants that synthesize and store inulin do not store other forms of carbohydrate such as starch.
