Low-calorie sweeteners, or sugar substitutes, can allow people with diabetes to enjoy sweet foods and drinks that do not affect
their blood sugar levels.FOS are used primarily as a low-calorie, alternative sweetener. People can eat and drink products made
with FOS instead of those containing sugar, which spike glucose levels in the blood, and cause weight gain. Fructo oligosaccharides
(FOS) are a mixture of oligosaccharides (GF2, GF3, GF4), which are composed of fructose units connected by ß (2-1) links.
These molecules are terminated by fructose units. The total number of fructose or glucose units (degree of polymerization
or DP) of fructo oligosaccharides is mainly between 2-4. Fructo oligosaccharide (FOS), also known as fructo oligosaccharide,
enters the large intestine directly without being digested and absorbed by the body, and rapidly promotes the reproduction of
bifidobacteria and other prebiotics in the intestine, so it is also called fructo oligosaccharides . "Bifidus Factor".
2) Function & Application
Fructo oligosaccharide has a variety of superior physical and chemical properties and physiological functions. It is known as a 21st century healthy new sugar source with nutrition, health care and curative effect. Products with added fructooligosaccharides are more and more popular with consumers. At present, oligofructose has been widely used in dairy products, health products, functional beverages, solid beverages, cand, biscuits, bread, jelly and other food industries, feed industr, medicine, beauty and other industries. In Japan, oligofructose has been used as a bulking agent, sweetener, freshener and wetting agent, and France has also approved the use of oligofructose as an additive for pig and rabbit feed.
