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.
