So, what is oligofructose syrup?

Oligofructose syrup is a natural sweetener derived from chicory roots that is gaining popularity as a healthy alternative to traditional sweeteners. This syrup is a mixture of short-chain fructooligosaccharides that are not digested in the small intestine, providing fewer calories than regular sugar. The syrup has a sweet, mild flavor with a hint of honey and is commonly used in a variety of foods such as beverages, baked goods, and snacks. Oligofructose syrup is also known to have prebiotic properties, meaning it promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, which may improve digestive health. Its low glycemic index makes it an ideal ingredient for those watching their blood sugar levels.
