The Role of Galacto-oligosaccharides in Milk Powder
Galacto-oligosaccharide is a type of oligosaccharide, which is mostly made from lactose in milk and is generated through the action of enzymes. It is a type of sugar. Galacto-oligosaccharide has a wide range of uses, and eating it in moderation is beneficial to the human body.
Galactooligosaccharides are widely used in infant foods, baked goods, dairy products, beverages, and candies, and have a wide range of uses. In addition, galactooligosaccharide has less impact on blood sugar and can be used as a sugar substitute for diabetic patients. In addition, galacto-oligosaccharide is acid-resistant and heat-resistant, and is not easily decomposed by gastric juice and saliva. It directly enters the large intestine and helps promote the proliferation of bifidobacteria in the intestine. Moderate consumption of galacto-oligosaccharide is beneficial to maintaining the balance of intestinal microecology. Galacto-oligosaccharides are also beneficial in promoting intestinal peristalsis, enhancing intestinal propulsion, and increasing stool moisture, thereby helping to relieve constipation.
Although galactooligosaccharides are sugars, they have little impact on blood sugar. Moreover, galacto-oligosaccharide has low calories and will not put much burden on the human body when meeting the demand for sweetness, making it suitable for most people to eat. Galacto-oligosaccharide is an important nutritional additive. Its main functions in milk powder are to maintain intestinal function, promote nutrient absorption, and improve immunity.
1. Maintain intestinal function.
Galacto-oligosaccharides can promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, maintain the balance of intestinal flora, and help protect intestinal health. In addition, galactooligosaccharides can also promote intestinal peristalsis, help promote defecation, and prevent intestinal problems such as constipation.
2. Promote nutrient absorption.
Galacto-oligosaccharide can promote the growth of probiotics such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus in the intestine, help improve intestinal immunity and protect intestinal health. In addition, galacto-oligosaccharide can also promote the absorption of other nutrients, such as protein, vitamins, etc., helping to meet the body's nutritional needs.
3. Improve immunity.
Galacto-oligosaccharide can promote the synthesis of immunoglobulins, improve the level of protective immunity in the intestinal mucosa, and enhance the body's immunity. In addition, galacto-oligosaccharides can also promote the synthesis of other immune regulatory factors, such as cytokines, antibodies, etc., helping to regulate the function of the immune system.
In addition, adding galactooligosaccharide to milk powder can increase the sweetness of milk powder and make milk powder richer and more diverse. However, it should be noted that the intake of galactooligosaccharide should be appropriate to avoid gastrointestinal discomfort and other problems caused by excessive intake.
Can diabetics eat galacto-oligosaccharide?
If diabetic patients have their blood sugar controlled within a reasonable range and have no other complications, they can eat galacto-oligosaccharide appropriately. Because galacto-oligosaccharide does not have a major impact on blood sugar, and galacto-oligosaccharide is a nutrient source and proliferation factor for beneficial bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus in the human intestine, patients who eat it appropriately may play a role in promoting intestinal health and aid in digestion and absorption of food.
If a diabetic has a high blood sugar level or is accompanied by other serious diabetic complications, it is not recommended to eat galacto-oligosaccharide on his own, especially if he eats a large amount of galacto-oligosaccharide without control, it may cause blood sugar to rise. It may even worsen the condition.
It is recommended that people with diabetes eat less sugary, high-calorie foods, focus on low-sugar, low-oil, low-salt, low-fat, and low-cholesterol foods, and eat more fresh vegetables and fruits. Be sure to monitor blood sugar regularly to prevent complications.
In daily life, you should also pay attention to your usual dietary health. Try to eat foods that are easy to digest, such as rice porridge, boiled cabbage, etc., but avoid spicy or cold foods, such as peppers, ice cream, etc. , so as not to increase the burden on the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in abdominal pain, diarrhea and other symptoms. If you have symptoms of discomfort, it is recommended to go to the hospital for treatment in time to avoid delaying the condition.
