Investigation of some relationships between administration of 4G- beta -D-galactosylsucrose (Lactosucrose, LS) and abdominal symptoms - Measurement of maximum non-effective dose

Investigation of some relationships between administration of 4G- beta -D-galactosylsucrose (Lactosucrose, LS) and abdominal symptoms - Measurement of maximum non-effective dose

LS is synthesized from sucrose + lactose using a beta -fructofuranosidase; it is slightly hydrolysed by mammalian digestive systems and is readily utilized by the bifidobacteria predominating in the human intestine. Effects of up to 0.8 g LS/kg bodyweight on faecal condition and abdominal symptoms were studied in 38 male and 46 female healthy volunteers.

Feed containing 0.7% 4G- beta -D-galactosylsucrose (lactosucrose, LS), a non-digestible oligosaccharide, was given to weanling rats aged 4 to 12 weeks to investigate the effects of LS ingestion on bone. During the test period of ingestion, the qua...
