The soluble dietary fibre inulin, for example, is found in garlic, asparagus, onion, artichokes and leeks. However, you’d have to eat a huge amount of these natural prebiotics — preferably raw — to gain any real benefit from them.
Besides inulin, other common prebiotics include fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), lactulose and lafinose.
Prebiotics are sometimes added to pre-packaged foods such as prebiotic yoghurt, bread, cereals, sports drinks and snack bars. Or you can purchase them in the form of food supplements such as pastilles, tablets or powders. The most advanced prebiotics are those that mimic the structure and function of natural prebiotic fibres found in mothers’ breast milk.
