In recent years both in human and animal nutrition there is a growing interest towards the beneficial effects of complex polysaccharides in health, as well as the popularity of functional foods. Some fermentable carbohydrates can be defined prebiotics, non-digestible ingredients that play a beneficial role in health, stimulating the growth and/or metabolic activity of desirable bacterial species already resident in the colon. Alternative and innovative carbohydrates sources were researched. As a result, less digestible carbohydrates and ingredients with a low glycaemic index and/or rich in slowly fermentable carbohydrates and/or in soluble fiber (whole barley, spelt and oats and fruits) have received attention by human and veterinary diabetologists.
