Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are short-chain polymers comprised of D-fructose and D-glucose‚ which are not
metabolized by the body like simple sugars are‚ and are therefore considered non-digestible oligosaccharides.
They occur naturally in bananas‚ garlic‚ Jerusalem artichokes and certain other foods‚ and technically are a soluble
fiber. FOS are effective sweeteners‚ being half as sweet as sucrose‚ yet are not absorbed and have minimal caloric
value. FOS may be considered prebiotic and support the proliferation of intestinal probiotics‚ especially the bifidobacteria.
Our FOS are derived from sugar cane.
