Fructoseoligosaccharides (FOS), is also know as Fructo-oligo, it directly enters into large intestine without being digested and absorbed by human body, and in intestine it rapidly promotes reproduction of bididobactirium and other probiotics, so it is also called “Bifidus Factor”.
-----powder & syrup
Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is a mixture of oligosaccharides (GF2, GF3, GF4)
which are composed of fructose units connected by ß (2- 1) links.
These molecules are terminated by a fructose unit.
The total number of fructose or glucose units (Degree of Polymerization or DP) of oligofructose ranges
mainly between 2 and 4.
Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), is also know as Fructo- oligo,
it directly enters into large intestine without being digested and absorbed by human body, and in intestine
it rapidly promotes reproduction of bididobactirium and other probiotics, so it is also called “Bifidus Factor”.
In China,MOH’S No.11 Announcement of 2009 authorize FOS as a new nutritional fortifiers.
NO.6 Announcement of 2012 authorize FOS source from sucrose, suppiemented as nutrition fortifier.
In Japan, authorize FOS as specific health food.
In USA, FDA validate FOS as a safe class(GRAS) of food ingredient.
Properties of Fructooligosaccharides (FOS):
*sweetness: 0.3-0.6 times of sucrose
*low calorie: 1.5Kcal/g calories
*solubility: Soluble in water and more soluble than sucrose
*viscosity: Viscosity is relativity higher than sucrose
*Encourage the growth of good bacteria and yeast in your gut
*Increase your dietary fiber intake
*Improve your digestion
*Can guard against cancer
*Relieve constipation and irritable bowel
*Add body and flavor to baked goods and beverages
*Are a virtually calorie-free addition to your diet
