So, what is oligofruttosio?

Oligofructose, also known as oligofructosio, is a type of dietary fiber that is commonly found in various fruits and vegetables. It is composed of short chains of fructose molecules that are resistant to digestion in the small intestine, which means that it passes through to the large intestine where it can provide beneficial effects on gut health. Oligofructose has been shown to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, leading to improved digestion and absorption of nutrients. Additionally, it has been linked to various health benefits, including improved blood sugar control, increased satiety, and reduced risk of chronic diseases. Oligofructose is often used as an ingredient in functional foods and dietary supplements due to its prebiotic properties.
