I was recently introduced to the ingredient inulin, which is starting to show up in more foods these days. it's manufactured from chicory, and has some very interesting properties: it's hygroscopic, and when wet, it behaves something like a fat (it has a similar mouth feel). since it's a modified starch, it can feed yeast in baked goods made with low-carbohydrate flours, while it's virtually indigestible by humans.
