I have read this article Here
For those who do not like to read and prefer summaries, it is another study of obese mice. They fed obese mice some special prebiotics (oligofructose) so the amount of bacteria Akkermansia muciniphila increased. As a result, the mice lost some of its weight and reduced inflammation.
Here is a list of food rich in oligofructose:
Wheat (obviously, this is out, plus I got it off the Celiac website, they warn against it)
Artichoke (the root type, not the spiky globe)
Has anybody tried eating more foods rich in oligofructose? Has it affected your weight?

Is oligofructose the only oligosaccharide that effects one's weight? Beans are high in some oligosacchardies and dietary bean intake may have favorable effects on weight as it pertains to metabolic syndrome is why I ask.
But to answer your question, no I haven't tried eating more foods rich specifically in oligofructose.
