Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are a mixture of oligosaccharides consisting of glucose linked to fructose units. They are not digested in the human small intestine but fermented in the colon, where they could specifically promote the growth of some species of the indigenous microflora, especially bifidobacteria. We assessed in healthy humans the effects of FOS ingestion in fecal bifidobacteria and selected metabolic indexes potentially involved in colonic carcinogenesis. Twenty volunteers… CONTINUE READING
