What is a Prebiotic?
Prebiotic can be loosely defined as a non-digestible food ingredient that helps to support the growth of the probiotic bacteria. This definition can be traced back to 1995.
In 2007, Xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS) was classified as a prebiotic by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Technical Meeting Report on Prebiotics.
Why choose XOS as your to-go prebiotic?
XOS is seen to be a highly desirable prebiotic because it minimizes gastrointestinal side effects (no gas or bloating!) by a small effective dosage required.
The nutrition supplement formulators also love XOS’ effective functions and competitive cost per dose. XOS can be easily incorporated into both functional foods and dietary supplements.
The benefits of Prebiotics
Why do you need prebiotic supplements? First of all, let’s talk about digestive system health.
As many as 70 million people in the world are affected by impaired digestion ranging from chronic constipation to inflammatory bowel disease. Probiotics came as the first-step solution. Gradually, consumers are being more aware of the concept of prebiotics, which nourish the probiotics and enhance the supplement’s efficiency.
The future growth of prebiotics will be in part due to the trend to support probiotics with prebiotics either separately or together.
