Posted by Supriya Kokate on October 17th, 2021

The Global Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) market is forecast to reach USD 4.29 Billion by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Fructooligosaccharides [FOS], one of the commonly used alternative sweeteners, are a form of carbohydrate. Another word for sugar is a saccharide, and a molecule formed of a small group of these sugars is oligosaccharide. FOS is widely used as an alternative sweeter as it contains fewer calories as compared to sugar, and it does not increase the blood sugar. FOS has been used as a popular sweeter in Korea and Japan for many years, even before 1990. It is now that FOS is gaining popularity in Western nations because of its prebiotic effects. In various researches, it has been stated that there is a positive correlation between decreasing serum glucose levels and FOS intake. As compared to other sweeteners, FOS does not increase the blood sugar due to which, it is considered to be an ideal choice for diabetic patients looking for alternative sweeteners. Herein, continuous rise in geriatric population, increasing rate of obesity and diabetes would foster the growth of the sector. Factors like advancements in manufacturing techniques and the increasing demand for low-calorie sweeteners and elevating consumption of functional food would also propel the growth of the industry.
