Galactooligosaccharide

 -Definition of Galactooligosaccharide

Galactooligosaccharideis a natural functional sweetener made from lactose as a special enzyme.

Galactooligosaccharidesare the best functional sweeteners because they have the highest physiological function among the various oligosaccharides.

In particular, it is used as a food for bifidus and lactic acid bacteria that are beneficial to our bodies living in the large intestine, and is a functional sweetener that is very beneficial for colon health by increasing the population of these beneficial bacteria, and Galactooligosaccharidesare also called prebiotics.
