  • Dragon fruit is becoming more popular due to their nutritional benefits. It has been reported as a potential source of natural prebiotic since it contains oligosaccharides. This research aims to evaluate prebiotic properties of oligosaccharides from dragon fruit’s flesh. The oligosaccharides are non-digestible oligosaccharides since they resisted hydrolysis by human α-amylase in mouth, artificial human gastric juice in stomach and human α-amylase with sucrase, giving maximum hydrolysis of 6.7… CONTINUE READING
