Chitosan Oligosaccharide (COS) is the degraded products of chitosan by enzymatic hydrolysis. The greater solubility, low 

viscosity and positive physiological effects of COS have attracted the interest of many researchers to utilize COS replacing 

chitosan. Recent advances have insight into the health benefits of COS, possessing several beneficial biological effects 

including lowering blood cholesterol, lowering high blood pressure, protective effects against infections, controlling arthritis, 

improvement of calcium uptake, and enhancing antitumor properties.
