  • roots by differential precipitation with ethanol (0-20, 20-40 and 40-60 per cent) from the aqueous extract of sun-dried roots, by melting the frozen chicory root extract and by removing the oligo-fructosachharides from chicory roots with 20 per cent ethanol. Different inulin preparations so obtained are compared with some of the commercial inulin preparations. Sun-dried roots are as good as the fresh roots for isolation of inulin hut roots dried in an oven (80-90"C) have lower inulin content… CONTINUE READING
