Organic Fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS)

Organic fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) can be used as health food and food ingredients. It has low calorific value, no dental caries, promotes the proliferation of bifidobacteria, lowers blood sugar, improves serum lipids, and promotes the absorption of trace elements and other excellent physiological functions. Fructo-oligosaccharides are recognized by international nutrition scholars as "water-soluble dietary fiber with excellent indigestibility"

Applications of Organic Fructo-oligosaccharides

It can promote the growth and reproduction of intestinal beneficial bacteria without being absorbed and utilized by harmful bacteria and livestock and poultry.

Fructooligosaccharides also have excellent proliferation effects on bifidobacteria present in other warm-blooded animals. Fructooligosaccharides can effectively treat the symptoms of diarrhea and diarrhoea after weaning in livestock, and play a positive role in the prevention of adverse problems such as death, slow growth and developmental delay caused by it.

Fructooligosaccharides can be used in lactic acid bacteria beverages, solid beverages, confectionery, biscuits, bread, jelly, cold drinks, soups, cereals and other foods. The addition of fructooligosaccharides not only improves the nutritional and health value of food, but also effectively prolongs the shelf life of various foods such as ice cream, yogurt, and jam.

Fructooligosaccharide is low in calories, will not cause obesity and will not increase blood sugar. It is an ideal new type of health-care sweetener. It can be used as a food base in food to meet the needs of diabetics, obese patients and hypoglycemic patients.

Fructooligosaccharides are widely used in infant food, especially dairy products, such as infant milk powder, pure milk, flavored milk, fermented milk, lactic acid bacteria beverages, and various milk powders. Adding an appropriate amount of prebiotics such as fructooligosaccharides, inulin, and lactulose to infant milk powder can promote the growth of bifidobacteria or lactobacilli in the colon. Fructooligosaccharides are used in drinking water as biologically active prebiotics and water-soluble dietary fibers, which can not only meet the needs of basic physiological functions and metabolism of the human body, but also promote human health. Their effects complement each other and complement each other.

Fructooligosaccharides can play many physiological effects of dietary fiber, such as regulating intestinal function, maintaining the integrity of the large intestine, anti-transplantation, changing the pathway of nitrogen excretion, and increasing the absorption of minerals.

Adding fructooligosaccharides in roasted food can improve the color of the product, improve the brittleness, and is conducive to puffing.
