- ... Prebiotic fructooligosaccharides (FOS) are currently obtained by enzymatic reaction with fructosyltransferases (FTFs) using sucrose as both donor and acceptor. In these reactions glucose results as the most abundant by-product, arising from each fructosyl transfer event and, together with fructose, because of the inherent hydrolytic activity of the FTFs. As FOS are mainly used as prebiotic in nutr ...
