Title: Biotransformation of Fructooligosaccharides by microorganisms
For thousands of years natural enzymes made by microorganisms give new face of formation of food products which are good in health benefits, disease prevention, treatment and general well-being. The science and technology of designing food product for health benefit is relatively new trend and led to development of so many biotechnological and pharmacological companies. Short chain fructooligosaccharides (scFOS) a prebiotic compound are alternative sweeteners with various nutritional properties like non cariogenicity, safe for diabetes, minimal calorific value, bioavailability of minerals, colonic carcinogenesis and absorption of Ca+, Mg+ and Fe+ ions. Structurally FOS consisting of 1-kestose (GF2), nystose (GF3), and 1-β-fructofuranosyl nystose (GF4) in which fructosyl units (F) are bound at the β (2→1) position of sucrose molecule. The commercial production of FOS comes by enzymatic microbial bioprocesses by fructosyltransferase (E.C, β-fructofuranosidase (EC or by controlled enzymatic hydrolysis of inulin by inulinase enzymes. The main goal of this topic is to demonstrate biotransformation processes of FOS formation which has attracted interest by biotechnologist and microbiologist across the world.
