What is Organic Fructooligosaccharide Powder?

Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) powder, also known as oligofructose or fructooligosaccharides, is a white or slightly yellow amorphous powder (the particles are white or slightly yellow amorphous particles), with a soft and refreshing mouthfeel, with a fructooligosaccharides flavor and no peculiar smell. odorless. Foreign impurities.

Fructooligosaccharides are short-chain polymers. Composed of D-fructose and D-glucose, they are not metabolized by the human body like monosaccharides, so they are considered indigestible oligosaccharides.

Fructooligosaccharides are naturally found in fruits, garlic, Jerusalem artichoke, and certain other foods. Technically, they are soluble fiber. It is a probiotic multiplication agent, which is not digested and absorbed by the human body, and reaches the large intestine directly.

FOS is an effective sweetener. Its sweetness is half that of sucrose, but it is not absorbed and has the lowest calorie value.

Fructooligosaccharides are considered prebiotics and support the growth and effectiveness of probiotics, especially bifidobacteria.

Fructose oligosaccharides powder are generally used in dairy products (such as milk powder, lactic acid milk, ice cream, etc.), various types of health products, food for infants and middle-aged and elderly, beverages (such as coffee, herbal tea, etc.), alcohol, pastries, and feed, as The number of health additives added to food and beverage is 10-150g / kg. The performance of fructooligosaccharide is relatively stable, and it will not decompose to produce toxic ingredients. Therefore, people can use fructooligosaccharides boldly as long as ordinary sugar can be used when cooking or making snacks.

As a biologically active prebiotic and dietary fiber

Oligofructose is used in drinking water. It can not only meet the basic physiological functions and metabolism needs of the human body but also promote human health. Its effects complement each other and complement each other.

As a bifidobacterium probiotic

Not only can this soluble dietary fiber be added with the function of fructooligosaccharides powder, but also can overcome some of the defects of the original product, making the product more perfect. For example, adding oligofructose to non-fermented dairy products (raw milk, milk powder, etc.) can solve the problems of middle-aged and elderly people and children who easily get angry and secret when supplementing nutrition; adding oligofructose to fermented dairy products can provide a source of nutrients for the live bacteria in the product, enhance the function of the live bacteria, and extend the shelf life; adding fructooligosaccharides powder to cereal products, etc., can achieve high product quality and extend the shelf life of the product.

As the activation factor

Namely calcium, magnesium, iron, and other minerals and trace elements, it can achieve the effect of promoting the absorption of minerals and trace elements, such as adding fructooligosaccharides powder to foods and health products such as calcium, iron, zinc, etc., Can improve the efficacy of the product.

As a unique indigestible sugarless low-calorie sweetener

When added to food, not only can the fructooligosaccharide powder improve the taste of the product, reduce the calorific value of the food, but these functional oligosaccharides can also extend the shelf life of the product. For example, the addition of fructooligosaccharides in diet foods can greatly reduce the calorific value of products; the fructooligosaccharides powder in low-sugar foods is more difficult to cause blood sugar to rise; the addition of fructooligosaccharides powder in alcoholic products can prevent the precipitation of soluble in wine, Improve the clarity, improve the flavor of the wine, make the wine taste more mellow and refreshing; add oligofructose to fruit-flavored beverages and tea beverages, can make the product more delicate and soft, more refreshing.
