hGOS™ Fiber is a key ingredient to a strong, healthy lifestyle

Unlocking gut-healthy Ingredients
LacNAc, (N-Acetyl-Lactosamine), is a building block of HMOs and the key component of our proprietary composition hGOS™ Fiber, a natural superfood of beneficial bacteria, promoting the growth and associated functional activity to achieve a balanced and resilient microbiome.
Creating Synbiotic Products
hGOS™ Fiber is produced naturally during the culturing process for enriching drinkable yogurts and other cultured products rich in probiotics, upgrading them to synbiotic (probiotic + prebiotic) product offerings in-situ.
Promoting Healthy Aging
Products enriched in hGOS™ Fiber can help to restore a resilient microbiome in aging adults, helping to boost immunity, promote cognitive health, and helping to protect against age-related chronic GI infections and other digestive issues including leaky gut.

We partner with leaders in food production to fortify products across life stages
