What is Fructo-oligosaccharide
Fructo-oligosaccharides is a group of oligosaccharides, or a group of connected simple sugars. These simple sugars, also termed carbohydrates, are fructose molecules. Fructo-oligosaccharides are commonly used as a sweetener and as a prebiotic dietary supplement. They have been shown to have minimal effect on blood sugar levels when used as sweeteners for those who have diabetes. Also, they can be used to ferment certain good bacteria in the intestines.
Natural Sources of Fructo-oligosaccharide
Sources of naturally occurring fructo-oligosaccharides include onions and chicory root. Other sources include garlic, barley and asparagus. They are built from fructose, so fructo-oligosaccharides are often found in most fruits as well. Naturally occurring fructo-oligosaccharides in fruits and vegetables are usually present in small amounts. Inversely, supplemental fructo-oligosaccharides or sweeteners are extracted and are thus present in larger amounts.
Health Benefits of Fructo-oligosaccharide
Here Look at some key findings of Fructo-oligosaccharide as the following:
Fructo-oligosaccharides as a Sweetener
FOS is used as a sweetening agent, flavour enhancer, bulking agent and humectant.  This is because it is non-digestible and has about half the natural sweetness of sugar.  When it is used as a low-calorie sucrose replacement, it can be found in cookies, cakes, breads, candies, dairy products and some drinks.
Other Benefits
Because FOS is indigestible, it acts as a non-digestible fibre in the diet.  This is because the body does not possess the necessary enzymes to break down the FOS as it travels down the digestive tract.  When it reaches the large intestine and the colon, the bacteria that are naturally present there start to break down the FOS as the bacteria have the enzymes necessary to do so.  Bifido bacteria use FOS and foods that promote the growth of the bifido bacteria are good for health.  FOS increases the amount of beneficial bacteria in the lower intestine, and thus there are improvements in the digestion and absorption of nutrients, detoxification and elimination processes, and in the immune system.
FOS may also help to relieve constipation and other gastrointestinal disorders including problems that are related to irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and lactose intolerance.
Fructo-oligosaccharide Side Effects
Fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS) are generally safe, states Langone Medical Center. But when you take it in supplements at doses higher than 15 grams, you could experience bloating, flatulence, and intestinal discomfort. Lactose-intolerant individuals may experience side effects even at low doses.
