Well this food does have Vitamins C and E added. Those are both immune boosters.

Actually fructo-oligosaccharides are a type of highly fermentable fiber. They are good because the fermentation process in the small intesting helps increase the number of good bacteria which produce B vitamins, which nourish the intestinal mucosal lining. It also helps lower the PH in the intestial tract which improves calcium absorption.

That being said I wouldnt reccomend this food because of the addition of corn. Other than that it looks like an ok food.
