New Potent Prebiotic Found in Spruce Tree Bark

New Potent Prebiotic Found in Spruce Tree Bark

Research from Finland's University of Turku has confirmed that a compound found in the bark of the Spruce tree and apparently other tree wood barks is a powerful and functional prebiotic that feeds our healthy gut bacteria.

The researchers determined that the compound, galactoglucomannan, is the primary component of the hemicellulose present in many softwood tree species. The researchers extracted galactoglucomannan from the Spruce tree (Picea abies), and then fed it to probiotic bacteria in the laboratory.
