With the rising inclination of proactive consumers toward healthy lifestyles, there has been a remarkable demand for dietary supplements and functional foods. This trend has directly influenced the use of inulin in supplements, owing to its higher nutritional content in comparison to other sweeteners, due to the presence of rich fiber and minerals. Also, prebiotics contains non-digestible fiber, which helps in stimulating bacterial growth in the human body, owing to which, the demand for these products in dietary supplements is rising among the consumers.
The United States Drives the Regional Market

The US FDA has recognized inulin as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) product, which is expected to have a positive impact on the market studied over the forecast period. As a part of strategic expansion, manufacturers and suppliers operating in the United States are vertically integrating their supply chain.

Additionally, Prenexus Health grows its own high-fiber sugarcane to ensure product traceability, consistency, and quality.
