So, what is oligofructoses?

Oligofructoses are a type of prebiotic fiber that occur naturally in certain foods, such as chicory root, garlic, and onions. These short-chain fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are not digestible in the human gut and pass intact into the large intestine, where they serve as food for beneficial bacteria, such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli. By stimulating the growth of these probiotic microbes, oligofructoses help to improve gut health, boost immunity, and enhance nutrient absorption. Oligofructoses are also low in calories, making them a popular ingredient in low-calorie and diabetic-friendly foods.
