Fructooligosaccharides   or FOS, bananas contain high levels of these. “(FOS) virtually undigested by the human digestive system so arrives in the colon unaltered, providing a food source for beneficial bactercia”  check it…also known as probiotics. Basically FOS are prebiotics…nourishing and feeding the probiotics.
