Inulins are a group o naiturally occurrin polysaccharides produced bi mony teeps o plants,[1] industrially maist eften extracted frae chicory.[2] The inulins along tae a class o dietary fibers kent as fructans. Inulin is uised bi some plants as a means o storin energy an is teepically foond in ruits or rhizomes. Maist plants that synthesize an store inulin dinna store ither forms o carbohydrate such as starch. Uisin inulin tae meisur renal function is the "gowd staundart" for comparison wi ither means o estimating creatinine clearance.[3]
