Troo Spoonful of Fibre Pure Inulin Syrup is exactly what it says on the jar - inulin syrup from chicory root with absolutely nothing else added; with every spoonful containing 65% soluble, prebiotic fibre and only 9% natural sugars.
It is super flexible and easy to use. It is water soluble so you can add it to hot or cold drinks and it will dissolve easily. It is also heat stable so you can add it to your cooking and baking, you can even add it to food to be frozen or chilled. All the while it retains its healthy properties, helping you to reach the target 30g of fibre per day.
Below you'll find some delicious ways to use our syrup - hopefully also showing you just how flexible it can be. We'd also love to hear your suggestions, please do get in touch at [email protected]
Not only does it add a delicate sweetness and appetising glossy appearance, it's also adding 8g of [prebiotic] fibre and just over 1g of sugar per 12g dessert spoonful.
Adding a dessert spoon of our syrup not only adds fibre and a gentle sweetness, it also adds a luscious texture to create a super smooth smoothy. Smoothies are a great way of using up odds and ends in the veg drawer, don't be afraid of mixing veg in - cucumber, carrots, spinach, peppers are great additions.
This is even more yummy with some fresh fruit (oranges, kiwi, summer fruits, figs) and seeds and nuts, we love toasted walnuts. Why not keep some frozen fruit in the freezer, defrosting them overnight, or even in the microwave as a warm compote?
Live coconut yoghurt is a great non dairy option.
In the autumn you can't been a roasted apple (or pear) - the syrup adds sweetness and stickiness without the sugar or calories. You can pimp it up further with some peanut butter in the core and a big dollop of yoghurt (or non dairy equivalent).
Parsnips are traditionally coated in honey before roasting, but you can do the same with carrots, butternut squash, aubergine, peppers and even courgettes. Serve as an accompaniement or even as a main meal with some Halloumi cheese or vegan alternative.
You can roast cheeses like brie / camembert and some goats cheeses (and non dairy alternatives) - top with some slices of fig and a good drizzle of inulin syrup. Roast in the oven until you can feel the ooze. then serve immediately with warm bread or crackers. This makes a perfect starter or a very indulgent snack (best shared if you can!!).
Whether it's a mustardy vinagarette or a minty raita, a dollop of Troo Spoonful of Fibre can be a fantastic addition, such an easy way to add fibre in a very non traditional way.
Some people say this is also a great way to start the day (my mum swears by it), it certainly tastes delicious and feels like it is doing good.
Many of us simply don't drink enougb water, getting into a water habit can be a really good thing. Fill your water bottle up at the start of the day with a spoonful of fibre syrup and take it to your work station. Try to refill it at least once during the day, getting into that hydration habit.
Research has shown that fibre consumption before bedtime can lead to a deeper and longer sleep, essential for our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Try a low caffeine option for the best impact.
