Fructooligosaccharides

Fructooligosaccharides is a group of oligosaccharides (connected simple sugars). Fructooligosaccharides 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 and can be used to ferment certain good bacteria in the intestines.

Fructooligosaccharides aren't digested by the human body. As a dietary supplement, fructooligosaccharides are used to stimulate beneficial bacteria in the colon in order to aid in proper absorption and assimilation of nutrients. Fructooligosaccharides are non-digestible carbohydrates, so don't impact blood sugar levels.

Excessive fructooligosaccharide consumption can cause intestinal problems or diarrhea, bloating and/or gas. There is some scientific literature showing that fructooligosaccharides also feed the bad bacteria, so over-consumption might hinder the ability of the beneficial bacteria to survive.
