Biosecure – FOS
bioSecure™ FOS is used as a source of fructooligosaccharides for animal species. The fructooligosaccharide (FOS) polymers cannot be metabolized by monogastrics, which lack the enzyme inulinase. Consequently, FOS passes on to the lower intestine where it is fermented by lactic acid producing bacteria such as Bifidobacterium. Gram negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli are unable to ferment or grow on FOS; thereby a natural selection will take place promoting beneficial bacteria in the lower intestine. It is packaged in 20 kg. (44 lb.) paper multi-ply, poly-lined bags.
