Where does our wholesale Organic Agave Inulin come from?
Our wholesale bulk blue Agave inulin powder is extracted from the Agave plant, which is found in Jalisco region in Mexico. The plant has been used for hundreds of years by locals as a sweetener for foods and drinks. The Agave plant does not require any fertilizer or irrigation system in order to grow it. Therefore, organic blue agave grows naturally very easily where other types of crop cannot.
Farmers, also known as the Jimadors, grow the agave plant to maturity for a period of 7 to 10 years. When it is harvested, its leaves are cut off and only the body is extracted, known locally as “the piña”. The juice obtained from it, containing a high dose of inulin, is then finely filtered using mechanical methods in order to remove any solid fibers, which helps release the inulin. Afterwards, the dilute agave inulin nectar goes through a hydrolysis process, obtaining as a final result the organic agave inulin powder.
