Abstract

Batchwise production of inulo-oligosaccharide from chicory juice was carried out by an endoinulinase from Pseudo-monas sp. The maximum yield of oligosaccharides (OS) was about 80% in total sugar basis with substrate at 30–100 g/l. Compared with pure inulin of the same origin as a substrate, the same OS yield was obtained but it showed quite a different product distribution in degree of polymerization (DP) and sugar composition, where DP2, DP3 and DP4 were major components.
