High purity fructooligosaccharides (FOS) for use in research, biochemical enzyme assays and in vitro diagnostic analysis. This compound can be used as an analytical standard or as a substrate for inulin degrading enzymes. This product is generated through the enzymatic degradation of chicory inulin. Total fructose/sucrose/glucose content is ~ 5%. Fn type fructooligosaccharides predominate (most of the oligosaccharides present in the mixture do not have the terminal glucose unit present in the native inulin GFn form). Note that inulin (DP2-60) is also available from Megazyme (P-INUL). The GFn form predominates in P-INUL (each oligosaccharide terminates with a glucose residue).
