Fructooligosaccharide

CAS No.: 308066-66-2
Other Names: Oligolevulose, FOS
MF: C6H12O6

What’s Fructooligosaccharide?

Fructooligosaccharide (FOS), 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 taste, with oligomeric Fructose fragrance, no peculiar smell, no foreign impurities. It is a probiotic proliferator that is not digested and absorbed by the human body and reaches the large intestine directly. The sweetness is lower than that of sucrose.

Application

Fructooligosaccharides are known as the most promising generation of additives after the era of antibiotics to promote biomass; in France, oligofructose powder is called protoxin. Fructooligosaccharide powder is generally used in dairy products (such as milk powder, lactic acid milk, ice cream, etc.), various health products, infant and middle-aged and elderly food, beverages (such as coffee, herbal tea, etc.), alcohol, cakes, and feed. The number of health additives added as food and beverage is 10-150g/kg. The performance of oligofructose is relatively stable and will not decompose to produce toxic components. Therefore, people can boldly use fructooligosaccharides, as long as they can use ordinary sugar when cooking or making snacks.

As a prebiotic and dietary fiber with biological activity
Fructooligosaccharides are used in drinking water. It can not only meet the basic physiological functions and metabolic needs of the human body but also promote human health. Their roles complement each other and complement each other.

As a Bifidobacterium probiotic
This soluble dietary fiber can not only add the function of oligofructose powder but also overcome some of the defects of the original product and make the product more perfect. For example, adding fructo-oligosaccharides to non-fermented dairy products (raw milk, milk powder, etc.) can solve the problem that middle-aged and elderly people and children are easy to get angry and secretive when supplementing nutrition; adding fructooligosaccharides to fermented dairy products can help The live bacteria in the product provide a source of nutrition, enhance the function of the live bacteria, and extend the shelf life. Adding oligofructose powder to cereal products can achieve higher product quality and extend the shelf life of the product.

As activator
That is, calcium, magnesium, iron, and other minerals and trace elements can achieve the effect of promoting the absorption of minerals and trace elements. For example, adding fructooligosaccharides powder, such as calcium, iron, zinc, etc., to food and health products can improve the product’s effect.

As a unique indigestible sugar-free low-calorie sweetener
When added to food, oligofructose powder can not only improve the taste of the product and reduce the calorific value of the food, but these functional oligosaccharides can also extend the shelf life of the product. For example, adding fructooligosaccharides to diet food can greatly reduce the calorific value of the product; fructooligosaccharide powder in low-sugar foods is less likely to cause blood sugar rise; adding fructooligosaccharide powder to alcoholic products can prevent solubles Precipitation in the wine, improve the clarity of the wine, improve the taste of the wine, and make the wine taste more mellow and refreshing; adding fructooligosaccharides to fruity beverages and tea beverages can make the product more delicate, soft, and refreshing
