NOVELTY – Fructooligosaccharides obtaining involves using fructosyltransferase enzyme, which is obtained from yeast or molds. 30-70% of sucrose is mixed with free or immobilized fructosyltransferase in a bioreactor at a temperature of 40-60 degrees C and at a pH of 4-6 for 24-48 hours to obtain fructooligosaccharides. The fructooligosaccharides are of types GF-2 (kestose), GF-3 (nistose) and GF-4 (1-frutosilnistose) and are presented in different combinations depending on the time of enzymatic conversion. USE – Method for obtaining fructooligosaccharides. ADVANTAGE – The fructooligosaccharides obtaining method effectively uses the given parameters to obtain satisfactory yield of fructooligosaccharides on a large scale.
