Formulate with PreBiotica P95 FOS!
PreBiotica P95 FOS is a powdered prebiotic fiber—a mixture of oligo- and polysaccharides composed of fructose moieties joined by beta (2–>1) linkages in linear chains. When it comes to prebiotics, chain length and the degree of polymerization are the differentiators of terminology—with inulin having a slightly higher DP. Inulin is referred to as fructooligosaccharide or oligofructose when the average chain length is between 3 and 5. From a functional standpoint, the primary difference is that FOS is slightly sweeter and less effective as a texturizer than inulin. However, it is significantly more soluble.
Studies have shown that PreBiotica P95 FOS may help suppress the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Because its chain length is near that of inulin, PreBiotica P95 FOS is ideal for use in formulations in which inulin contributes to sugar replacement—it can also be used as a fat mimetic and has been heralded for its role in suppressing defects caused by fat reduction in fermented meat products. Along with its numerous health benefits, this non-digestible carbohydrate delivers just 1 calorie per gram. PreBiotica P95 FOS can act as a sweetness modulator when used in conjunction with high intensity sweeteners like stevia and monk fruit—this blend creates a sweetening solution with a neutral flavor profile that can be used as a plug-and-play replacement for sugar. PreBiotica P95 FOS is non-GMO, kosher. Because our PreBiotica P95 FOS is derived without the use of chemicals, it can be used to support a clean label claim.
