The researchers put two groups of rats on a strict high-fat, high-sugar diet. One group was also fed oligofructose.
The rats consuming oligofructose gained one-third less weight, than the rats not given supplements.
The scientists believe oligofructose has prebiotic qualities, which helped to control the hunger-inducing hormones in the rats.
This is not the first study on oligofructose and weight loss. In 2009, research on humans found adults who supplemented with oligofructose lost about 2.2 pounds (one kilogram), on average, over the course of twelve weeks.
