Marine Poly- and Oligosaccharides as Prebiotics

Abstract

The marine environment can increase the global production of biomass. Interest in marine macroalgae and microorganisms has increased tremendously as a result of international agendas and market trends promoting sustainability as well as healthy food. Macroalgae and marine microorganisms contain unique poly- and oligosaccharides with different substitutions, e.g., sulfation or carboxylation. There is great potential to find prebiotic compounds from these marine-derived saccharides. However, the exact composition and substituent distribution needed for the activity is to a large extent unexplored. In depth investigations of these compounds will provide us with novel insights on the specific structures required for the observed... (More)

The marine environment can increase the global production of biomass. Interest in marine macroalgae and microorganisms has increased tremendously as a result of international agendas and market trends promoting sustainability as well as healthy food. Macroalgae and marine microorganisms contain unique poly- and oligosaccharides with different substitutions, e.g., sulfation or carboxylation. There is great potential to find prebiotic compounds from these marine-derived saccharides. However, the exact composition and substituent distribution needed for the activity is to a large extent unexplored. In depth investigations of these compounds will provide us with novel insights on the specific structures required for the observed functions.
