Inulin

A fructose polysaccharide from the rhizome of Inula helenium or elecampane (family Compositae) and other plants; administered intravenously, it is filtered by the renal glomeruli but not reabsorbed and thus can be used to determine the rate of glomerular filtration; also used in bread for diabetics.
