The present invention relates to the field of poly- and oligosaccharides and their dietary effects. In particular it relates to a method of producing a branched α-glucan. Further aspects of the invention are a branched α-glucan comprising linear segments of (α1→4) linked D-glucose units interspersed with (α1→6) glucosidic linkages and having (α1→4,6) branching points; a food composition; and the use of an α-glucanotransferase enzyme for reducing the digestible carbohydrates of a starch containing food material.
