Soybean Oligosaccharides refer to the essential prebiotics which could be used to improve immune function. Soybeans contain raffinose and stachyose, which are oligosaccharides with powerful prebiotic properties. Intact oligosaccharides are indigestible and hence, reach the colon after getting fermented by microorganisms. They provide multiple health benefits such as protection of liver by reducing toxic metabolites, prevents constipation, stimulates the growth of bifidobacterial, and reduces the risk of colon cancer.
The increasing number of health-conscious consumers interested in products that improve life quality has created a positive impact on functional drinks. For this reason, prebiotic drinks have gained momentum and the demand for its ingredients such as soybean oligosaccharides is also positively influenced. The low sweetness and low-calorie attributes of soybean oligosaccharides make it useful as bulking agents in low calories food formulations. With the increase in the rate of health issues such as obesity and other chronic diseases, consumers have an increased preference for food items with lesser calories. This consumer behavior thereby boosts the market demand for soybean oligosaccharides. However, functional oligosaccharides such as soybean oligosaccharides are present naturally at low concentrations in plants, therefore, the extraction processes of these types of oligosaccharides from their natural source is very costly. This factor is expected to potentially hinder the growth of the soybean oligosaccharides market.
Soybean oligosaccharides are used as humectants due to their high moisture retaining capacity. This characteristic makes it an ideal component for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. This can be viewed as an opportunity by the manufacturers for further growth and expansion of their market base.
