Xylo-oligosaccharide (XO) is a kind of functional oligosaccharide, a kind of safe and health additive. Because of its unique properties, XO has been used in food, medicine and health care widely. As additives for functional foods, XO impels economy to create a great deal of nutrimental substance and presents prebiotic action. But its application in animal husbandry in China has just started. The research progress of xylo-oligosaccharide’s physical-chemical properties, value and application in layer production is introduced in this article especially.
