Oligosaccharide Carbohydrates

Oligosaccharide Carbohydrates

An Oligosaccharide is a saccharide polymer containing a small number of simple sugars (monosaccharides). Oligosaccharides, except maltotriose, are indigestible, which means humans lack enzymes to break them down in the small intestine, so they reach the large intestine, where beneficial colonic bacteria break them down (ferment) to absorbable nutrients, which provide some energy.
