Effects of fructooligosaccharides on intestinal flora and human health

Effects of fructooligosaccharides on intestinal flora and human health

Bifidobacteria and Microflora 5(1): 37-50

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are not hydrolysed by digestive enzymes in man or animals. However FOS can be utilized by Bifidobacterium spp., Bacteroides fragilis, Peptostreptococcus spp. and Klebsiella pneumoniae; FOS are not utilized by Clostridium perfringens or Escherichia coli.
