Source Naturals, FOS Powder, 7.05 oz (200 g)29 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2018
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Source Naturals FOS is a complex of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) - a group of naturally occurring carbohydrates that can help promote the growth of beneficial flora in the gastrointestinal tract. The body normally maintains a balance of "friendly" flora in the intestines; unfortunately factors such as improper diet, stress, gastrointestinal problems, and use of antibiotics may disrupt this delicate balance. FOS are long chain sugars that are indigestible by humans, but serve as "food" for friendly flora helping to increase their numbers in the body. Scientific research conducted in Japan has shown that FOS are selectively used by friendly flora such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I-m using this in the morning to get a better absortion of calcium, taking these will keep the good bacteria alive, probiotics are so expensive and yet only a few people care to keep them alive n the gut, well you have to feed the good bacteria and this the best way to do it.
Thanks to FOS and other nutrients the IBS is gone. Colonic bacteria love to munch on FOS.
