What Are the Main Differences Between Fructooligosaccharide and Isomaltooligosaccharide FDA?
1. The definition of fructooligosaccharide
Fructooligosaccharide is a naturally active substance with a sweetness of 0.3 to 0.6 times that of sucrose. It is beneficial to the proliferation of beneficial bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli in the intestine, inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria, reduces the formation of toxic substances (such as endotoxin, ammonia, etc.), and has a protective effect on intestinal mucosal cells and liver.
2. The differences between fructooligosaccharide and isomaltooligosaccharide FDA
Fructooligosaccharides are only selectively absorbed by the beneficial bacteria Bifidobacterium in the human body and are used by beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus. That is, the oligofructose only proliferates beneficial bacteria and can inhibit harmful bacteria (pathogenic bacteria), which has the effect of two-way regulation.
The isomaltooligosaccharide FDAs can be used by some clostridia. Most of the Clostridium bacteria in the human intestine are harmful spoilage bacteria, which can cause discomfort in the human digestive tract. Therefore, isomaltooligosaccharide FDAs do not have the function of two-way regulation, which is not only beneficial to beneficial bacteria but also beneficial to the proliferation of harmful bacteria.
Supplementation of fructooligosaccharides can regulate in both directions, proliferate beneficial bacteria and inhibit harmful bacteria. It can be seen that both fructooligosaccharides and isomaltooligosaccharide FDAs can adjust the balance of intestinal flora.
