General description

Fructooligosaccharides are composed of glucose-(fructose)n with β−2→1 linkage between the fructose monomer units. The length of the fructose chain varies from 2 to 60 with an average degree of polymerization of >10. Fructooligosacchrides are resistant to hydrolysis by the intestinal enzymes, and have been shown to be indigestible by enzymes in the human small intestine but are fermented extensively by microflora in the lower digestive tract.

Application

Fructooligosaccharides from chicory may be used in prebiotic nutrition research to study the beneficial effects of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) on physiological processes and health. Fructooligosaccharide may be used in combinations with probiotic bacteria to assess their benefits as intestinal supplements. Fructooligosaccharide may be used in mannose-binding lectin (MBL) research.

Linkage

Inulin has a greater chain length than fructooligosaccharides.
