Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are short-chain polymers comprised of D-fructose and D-glucose, which are not metabolized by the body like simple sugars are, and are therefore considered non-digestible oligosaccharides. They occur naturally in bananas, garlic, Jerusalem artichokes and certain other foods, and technically are a soluble fiber. FOS are effective sweeteners, being half as sweet as sucrose, yet are not absorbed and have minimal caloric value. FOS may be considered prebiotic as they selectively support the proliferation of intestinal probiotics, especially the bifidobacteria.*

NutriCology FOS are derived from sugar cane.

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, 1/2 to 1 level teaspoon (1.25 to 2.5 grams) mixed in water if desired, two to four times daily between meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

CAUTION: Some individuals using FOS experience gastrointestinal bloating that does not subside after 1 of 2 weeks of use.  In those cases, FOS should be discontinued.  Recent clinical experience by some practitioners suggests that there are some unfriendly microbial invaders that are suspected of feeding on FOS.  Symptoms of that occurring would be as indicated above.
