CiFerm (pressed chicory pulp)

CiFerm® is produced during the processing of chicory roots into inulin. The chicory root belongs to the Compositae (compound flower family). Chicory is a biennial plant. In the first year, a thickened taproot is formed in which inulin is stored. The taproot is used for the extraction of inulin. This crop is grown on sand, clay and loess soils. The cut where the inulin has been washed out is pressed and deposited as CiFerm®.
