Product Details

Made in UK
Suitable for Vegetarians


FOS consists of a special soluble fibre called Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), which is found in many vegetables such as chicory and onions. When you take FOS it passes through your digestive system undigested until it reaches your bowel where the friendly bacteria use it as a food source. The result is a rapid growth in the ‘friendly’ bacteria, such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus species. After just 2 weeks of taking 8g of FOS daily, research has shown that it can significantly increase the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut by up to 10 times which explains why FOS is described as a ‘prebiotic’. Many researchers working in this area believe that prebiotic products are greatly undervalued compared to the popularity of probiotics. FOS is extracted from chicory roots and is suitable for all ages, including children and pregnant women, as well as those on yeast-free diets and those on medication, and can be used on a long term basis. It is a sweet soluble powder that can be mixed in to cold or hot drinks, sprinkled on cereals or eaten off the spoon. Daily intake: 5 to 15 grams

Product Use

(1 heaped teaspoon ? 5g)

This product may be used in one of two ways:

(i) At low doses FOS acts as a prebiotic (bowel-‘conditioner’) and

(ii) At larger doses FOS conditions the bowel and also helps maintain regularity

Prebiotic dose(bowel‘conditioner’):  

Initial Dose Adults : Maintainance Dose 5g/10g

Children 4 years & up 2.5g/5g

To condition the boweland help maintain regularity :

Initial 3 day Dose: Normal Full Dose:  Max Daily Dose: Adults 5g/Try 15g/20g Children 4 years & up 2.5g/5g/10g

Dissolve in hot drinks or sprinkle onto cereal

Alternatively simply take it ‘off the spoon’

Be sure to drink at least 2 litres of fluids a day


Cautions If any of these intake levels cause excessive flatulence then reduce the dose and gradually build up. The flatulence is a positive sign that FOS has reached the bowel and is feeding your ‘friendly’ bacteria As the bacteria consume FOS a gas is produced which can lead to some flatulence at first, however, after a few days this will disappear as further ‘friendly’ bacteria develop and absorb the gases.
