Onions

You would be peeling plenty of onions, because you need 400 grams of onions, more than 3 1/2 medium onions to meet the daily prebiotic guidelines.((Fernandes, R., et al.

Whole Grain Bread/Grain Products

While your morning toast helps, you’d need to eat about 600 grams of bread, about the equivalent of an entire loaf, to get the prebiotics your body needs daily.((Fernandes, R., et al.

Asparagus

Asparagus is a good source of fiber and vitamins but if you’re looking for prebiotics, you’d have to eat about 600 grams (~38 spears) to get the recommended daily intake.((Fernandes, R., et al.
