Ask a Question  

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.

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, 1/2 to 1 level teaspoon (1.25 to 2.5 grams) mixed in water if desired, two to four times daily between meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

CAUTION: Some individuals taking FOS may experience gastrointestinal bloating that persists longer than 1-2 weeks, possibly due to unfriendly microbes feeding on FOS. In such cases, this product should be discontinued.
