Fibractase is our new supplement for fructan/galactan intolerance. Fibractase contains the enzyme Alpha Galactosidase, which helps to digest fructans and galactans.
Ingrediënts: Fibractase contains 500 units Alpha Galactosidase per capsule with calcium as filling aid and the capsule is made of HPMC, so the product is also suitable for vegetarians.
How to use Fibractase: You have to take 1-3 capsules of Fibractase just before eating a meal which contains fructans and/or galactans. How much capsules you need to use is dependend on your degree of intolerance and the amount of fructans/galactans in the food.
Fructans and Galactans are part of the FODMAP’s (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols). FODMAP’s are carbohydrates that are poorly digested and poorly absorbed in the small intestine. Those FODMAP’s will be fermented by bacteria in the colon. This results in the production of gases.
Fructans and galactans are carbohydrates, oligosaccharides, which consists of a chain of several carbohydrates. Fructans and galactans can not be digested and absorbed in our small intestine, because our body does not produce an enzyme to cut the fructans and galactans into pieces. They will be transported to the colon, where they will be fermented by bacteria.
Fructans occur in for example: wheat products, garlic, onions, leek, vigs, dates
Galactans occus in for example: beans, legumes and cashew nuts
