is stimulated by the presence of complex carbohydrates known as oligosaccharides. Some of these are considered prebiotics (72). Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are well-known pre-biotics that are found in 36,000 plants (73). FOS may contain two to eight units in a chain. Inulin, a type of FOS extracted from chicory root, has a DP (degree of polymerization) up to 60. FOS and inulin occur naturally in a variety of fruits, vegetables, and grains, especially chicory, Jerusalem artichoke, bananas, onion, garlic, asparagus, barley, wheat, and tomatoes (73). Recommended level of prebiotics begin at 5 g/day (73) and may be as high as 15-20 g/day (18).
