Oligosaccharide Physiological Function


One of the benefits of oligosaccharides is that it can improve the micro-ecological environment in the human body, which is beneficial to the proliferation of bactericidal and other beneficial bacteria. The metabolic production of organic acids lowers the intestinal pH, inhibits the growth of intestinal salmonella and spoilage bacteria, regulates gastrointestinal function, and inhibits Intestinal spoilage substances, change stool characteristics, prevent constipation, and increase vitamin synthesis, improve human immune function.

Oligosaccharides are similar to water-soluble plant fibers and can improve blood lipid metabolism and reduce the content of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.

Do oligosaccharides raise blood sugar? The answer is absolutely negative. Oligosaccharides are dependent on non-insulin, will not increase blood sugar, suitable for people with high blood sugar and diabetes.

Because oligosaccharide is difficult to be hydrolyzed by saliva enzymes and small intestine digestive enzymes, the calorific value is very low, and it is rarely converted into fat;

Oligosaccharide does not form a matrix by dental caries, nor does it have the role of coagulating bacteria, which can prevent dental caries.

FAQs of Oligosaccharide


  • Is oligosaccharide sweet? How much sweetness is there?

  • Fructooligosaccharides belong to dietary fiber?

    Fructooligosaccharides belong to dietary fiber?

    A.

    Dietary fiber refers to the natural, extracted or synthesized carbohydrate polymer in plants, with degree of polymerization ≥ 3, which can not be digested and absorbed by human small intestine. Including cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin, inulin, etc.

  • What are the differences and connections between Q2, Fos and inulin?

    What are the differences and connections between Q2, Fos and inulin?

    A.

    The degree of polymerization of Fructooligosaccharide is 2-9, and that of inulin is 2-60.

  • What are the classification and difference of fructooligosaccharides?

    What are the classification and difference of fructooligosaccharides?

    A.

    According to different sources, fructooligosaccharides are mainly divided into two types: one is fructan with polymerization degree of 2-9 generated by enzymatic or acid hydrolysis of Jerusalem artichoke or chicory; the other is sucrose type fructooligosaccharide, which is a mixture formed by connecting 1-N fructose groups on the fructose group of sucrose molecule through glycosidic bond. There are two kinds of sugar in chicory.

    A.

    It has obvious effect on the proliferation of short bifid, long bifid, infant bifid and adolescent bifid in Bifidobacterium; it has obvious proliferation effect on Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus salivarius in Lactobacillus.

  • The use basis of fructooligosaccharides in food?

    The use basis of fructooligosaccharides in food?

    A.

    In 2013, the state health and Family Planning Commission issued a reply on the use of fructooligosaccharides, pointing out that fructooligosaccharides are commonly used food ingredients and nutritional fortifiers: when used as a nutritional fortifier in infant food and milk powder preparation, it should comply with the provisions of GB 14880; when used as an ingredient in other foods, it should comply with the provisions of corresponding food.
