Abstract: Inulin is a storage polysaccharide present in more than 30,000 vegetable products, including chicory roots, that are considered suitable for industrial application. The objective of this work was to evaluate the influence of temperature and the soluble solids concentration on the rheological behavior of a concentrated inulin solution obtained from a centrifugation process from chicory roots, after freezing at -24C. For all the evaluated soluble solids concentrations, inulin solutions showed a rheological behavior of a highly pseudoplastic fluid, with high resistance to flow at low strain rates followed by a breakdown of the structure when the shear rate increased. The effect of temperature on the apparent viscosity of inulin solutions can be represented by the Arrhenius equation. The rheological behavior of inulin solutions can be represented by the Herschel-Bulkley, Casson, Cross and Power Law equations, where the consistency index increases as temperature rises and the soluble solids concentration as well.
