The present invention relates to preparations comprising (arabino)xylan oligosaccharides with intermediate average degree of polymerisation, which beneficially modulate the intestinal flora, such preparation comprising both xylo- and arabinoxylo-oligosaccharides. Preferably, the arabinoxylo-oligosaccharides are substituted in part by hydroxycinnamic acids and exert antioxidant effects. Furthermore, it is preferred that the preparations according to the present invention have a nitrogen content below 0.16% (w/w) in order to ensure good organoleptic and colour properties, particularly upon heating said preparations.
