Nutriment containing an arabinoxylo-oligosaccharide and a water soluble arabinoxylan
A feed or food product enriched with two distinct types of water extractable arabinoxylan molecules comprising (i) an arabinoxylo-oligosaccharide (AXOS) and (ii) a water soluble arabinoxylan (WS-AX), wherein such nutritional prebiotic supplements are shown to have a positive effect on bifidogenic bacteria and butyric acid production with an inhibitory effect on intestinal protein fermentation, for improving gastro-intestinal health. Preferably the food product comprises on a dry weight basis between 0.75 to 15% (w/w) of water soluble arabinoxylan (AX-WS) and between 1.0 and 15% arabinoxylo-oligosaccharide. The food product may further comprise a water unextractable arabinoxylan. The food products are typically cereal based foods.
