These are short-chain polymers composed of simple carbohydrates
(fructose and sucrose) which are not metabolized by the body
like simple sugars are. 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 not absorbed and have minimal caloric
value. FOS may be considered a "pre" biotic as they selectively
support the proliferation of intestinal probiotics, especially
the bifidobacteria. Each 1/2 teaspoon (approx. 1.25 g)
contains: Calories 5 Total Carbohydrates 1.25 g
Sugars 1.25 g Fructooligosaccharides 1.2 g Suggested
Use: As a dietary supplement, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon two to four
times daily between meals, or as directed by a
physician. 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.
