Inulin and fructooligosaccharide are naturally occurring oligosaccharides, that belong to a group of carbohydrates known as fructans. Fructo-oligosaccharides are short-chain oligosaccharides, comprises of D-fructose and D-glucose, containing 3 to 5 monosaccharide units.

Inulin has a complex structure and has a longer chain, with degree of polymerization (DP) ranging from 3 to 60.  FOS has a DP of 2 to 10 and can be produced from sucrose by transfructosylation and also produced by controlled hydrolysis of Inulin.
