Global Oligofructose Market: Introduction
Oligofructose, also known as fructooligosaccharide, is a sub group of insulin and consists of polymers. Due to growing demand for artificial sweeteners to help tackle diseases, such as heart diseases, diabetes, stress, osteoporosis and cancer, it is anticipated that the market for oligofructose will experience lucrative growth during the forecast period. Oligofructose is extensively used in functional products due to its health-related benefits. Oligofructose has low calorie content, is sweet in flavor and is highly soluble in water. It does not lead to any harmful effects and is thus used to fortify foods. It helps in enhancing the flavour and sweetness of low-calorie foods, in addition to improving the texture of reduced-fat foods. Oligofructose is a type of natural food ingredient which is predominantly added in different proportions in dietary foods. Most of the oligofructose commercially available is either extracted from chicory roots or synthesized from sucrose.
Global Oligofructose Market: Drivers and Restraints
Goriwng health consciousness consumers is an important factor that will play a significant role in enhancing the demand for oligofructose during the forecast period. It has been proved that usage of oligofructose, as a bifidogenic agent, helps in improving the immune system. Oligofructose is also known to decrease pathogenic bacteria in the intestine and increase mineral absorption, which in turn, reduces any risk of osteoporosis and constipation.

It is good in taste, however, has moderate sweetness. Most of the manufacturers use it in combination with other sweeteners only because of its unique properties. Oligofructose is also known to be a laxative and can cause cramps if consumed in excess. It is recommended that not more than 30gm of Oligofructose should be consumed per day. Some people are allergic to this ingredient and can suffer from fructose intolerance and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Developments in production and processing technologies have resulted in the launching of several unique formulations of oligofructose, tailored for incorporation in a variety of end products.
