The FDA has stated that it has no objections to the Sensus America LLC claim that its inulin is GRAS (Submission Notice No. GRN 00018). Many of inulin's health benefits are based on its properties as a soluble, prebiotic fiber: in formulating low-carb foods, improving calcium uptake in the body and in promoting a healthy micro-flora and immune function in the colon.

The FDA also consulted with the labeling and Consumer Protection Staff of the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the FDA. FSIS has approved the use of inulin as a water binder, emulsifier, stabilizer and texturizer at a level between 2% and 5% in non-standardized meat food products. Sensus America, LLC, 646-452-6140,,,
