What are mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS), fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) or prebiotics?

Mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS) and fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are prebiotics added to our food to improve intestinal health. 

Prebiotics are often described as 'food' for certain bacteria in the intestine. These bacteria ensure that the intestine remains healthy, so it's important they flourish!

Prebiotics (such as MOS & FOS) are non-digestible food ingredients that go all the way to your pet's large intestine. There they are converted by the bacteria into elements that have a beneficial effect on the dog's or cat's gastrointestinal tract. This has a positive effect on the functioning of the intestine. By stimulating the growth of good bacteria, optimal intestinal health is created.
