Just Like Sugar® is made up of four ingredients.
The first and most important is Chicory (Inulin) Root Dietary Fiber, which is a pre biotic and probiotic food. The best (and some researchers believe the only) example of a prebiotic and probiotic is Chicory Inulin as found in Just Like Sugar®. Chicory Inulin is a "non-digestible oligosaccharide," which simply means that it is a carbohydrate that can not be digested. It can be - and is being - fermented in the lower parts of the intestinal tract. As a result, the friendly intestinal micro flora (bifidobacterium) grows better.
The directly registered effects of the prebiotic and probiotic Chicory Inulin are improved bowel functions mainly due to the increase of fecal bulk improved bio availability of minerals that, among other things, may contribute to a reduction in the risk of osteoporosis enhanced fat metabolism; there is preliminary evidence of a triglyceride and blood sugar reducing effect of Chicory Inulin in Just Like Sugar® possible reduction of the risk of colon cancer

Until about 200 years ago, sailors deprived of fruits and vegetables on long voyages commonly died of scurvy.
