Prebiotic activity of stachyose


Time of issue:


Stachyose,as a functional oligosaccharide,can selectively promote the growth and proliferation of beneficial bacteria in host intestine,thus improving host health. Many studies have shown that stachyose can play a variety of physiological functions in animals or humans,such as proliferating intestinal beneficial bacteria and improving intestinal health;participating in tricarboxylic acid cycle and reducing blood glucose and cholesterol content and improving lipid metabolism;moistening intestines,promoting intestinal peristalsis and relieving constipation symptoms. In addition,stachyose has stable physical and chemical properties,and its sweetness is only 22% of the sucrose,which can be used in beverages,dairy products,baking and other foods.
