Our organic inulin powder is 100% pure and made from blue tequilana weber agave. While this plant is well known for premium tequila and agave nectar, it’s also an excellent source of fiber. Our gentle enzymatic process uses 6 pounds of organic blue agave to make just 1 pound of inulin.
Inulin can help with regularity. A bulky stool is easier to pass, decreasing your chance of constipation. If you have digestive issues, fiber may help because it absorbs water and adds bulk to your stool.
Dietary fiber is best known for supporting digestive health. Intestinal probiotic bacteria eat the inulin and produce short-chain fatty acids that nourish the cells lining the colon helping to maintain intestinal support and function.
Inulin, a fructooligosaccharide (FOS), is a soluble prebiotic fiber that is resistant to digestion. High fiber foods take up space in your digestive system so they are more filling than low fiber foods. This means you will feel satisfied sooner when you eat them.

Many fruits, vegetables, coffee, and chocolate naturally contain some levels of the substances administered by Prop 65. This warning is there because of frequent lawsuits in California.
Proposition 65 contains a unique “citizen-suit” enforcement provision that allows trial lawyers to rake in millions of dollars from businesses who knowingly or unknowingly fail to meet all of Prop 65’s requirements. In many cases, the exposure limits required by Prop 65 are lower than what occurs naturally. As a result, these types of chemicals are often found in commonly eaten foods even though these chemicals are not intentionally added to foods or nutritional supplements
The “Prop 65” warnings are only required for products shipped to California.
Lead, for example, is found in natural proteins, plants, and minerals. Not a lot, but a measurable amount because plants absorb metals and other trace chemicals from the soil in which they’re grown. Detectable levels don’t mean that the plant was grown in dirty, polluted soil. The amount of lead naturally found in many fruits and vegetables grown in clean, uncontaminated soil may, and in many cases does, exceed Prop 65 limits. Detectable lead can be found in most foods you have eaten in your entire life including carefully selected and sourced superfoods. None of these elements are added by Opportuniteas, who follows good manufacturing practices to minimize or eliminate any contamination
Proposition 65 (“Prop 65”) is a California law formally known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act. Prop 65 is a unique California only “right to know” law that requires products sold in California to bear warning notices about potential exposure to any of the over 800 substances listed by the state Prop 65 does not ban any products from sale in California; it simply requires warning labels or signage. That allows anybody to bring a case by finding a listed chemical in a product even if it is present in an amount 1,000 times below the “no observable effect” level. Most companies end up settling with the plaintiff (even when they are not liable) to avoid the expense of litigation and then add the warning labels to everything.
