Prebiotics are non-digestible substances that stimulate the growth of certain wanted microorganisms and thus benefit to health. They are one category of functional foods and constitute an important part of the dietary fibres in human nutrition. Prebiotics are mostly but not exclusively carbohydrates. Some prebiotics are plant fibres, inulin (from chicory), fructo- and galacto-oligosaccharides, lactulose, and sugar alcohols.
