Out of all inulin is the most widely used ingredient in food industry. Fructo-Oligosaccharide help to promote growth of healthy bacteria flora which avoids food digestion problems. Galacto-oligosaccharides shows various health benefits such as bifido bacteria growth, increase calcium absorption. FOS is expected to be second, followed by inulin and is expected to be the fastest growing segment in prebiotic ingredient market over the forecast period....
