Fructo-Oligosaccharides (FOS) – Functional and nutraceutical properties

White paper

Seqens has developed a unique FOS composition, made from sucrose and presenting a large diversity in chain length. While short chains are metabolized quickly by colonic bacteria, medium chains have a sustained effect over time and very long chains are likely to be excreted before being fully metabolized by the bacteria.  Our unique FOS composition corresponds to an optimal balance between short and medium chain lengths. 

After reviewing the comprehensive structure and properties of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) in relation to its functional and nutraceutical properties, we will present the main health benefits, and more specifically focus on our unique FOS ingredient.

In this white paper you will learn how FOS:

  • Acts as a prebiotic, fueling beneficial gut bacteria
  • Enhances mineral absorption (think calcium, magnesium, and iron)
  • Lowers cholesterol levels through SCFAs (short-chain fatty acids)
  • Regulates blood sugar and supports immune function
