Readers are advised to find one that contains 'oligosaccharide' which, as someone who's baked professionally for a few decades, had no idea what that was.
She writes: "Mild-acid hydrolytic de-polymerization of carageenan affords poligeenan, a mixture of lower molecular weight polysaccharides and oligosaccharide products."
Its sweet flavour comes from the fructo-oligosaccharide also known as inulin.
SizeOn also contains a unique, proprietary, patent-pending oligosaccharide called
"This type of research has been performed and duplicated many times in the past" quadrupole time-of-flight (QTOF) LC/MS technology provided researchers a new view of the oligosaccharide (sugar) structures produced in breast milk across stages of lactation among human mothers.

Phe261 forms a hydrophobic interaction with the oligosaccharide.
There are thousands of oligosaccharide structures present in human breast milk and we need to determine which are the most effective.

More subtle roles for α − and β − mannosides are found in the glycans of higher organisms, where oligosaccharide diversity affords cell signaling and recognition events that lead oligosaccharides to play the role of "glycocode"; the language of cellular communication
