Support for the microbiome

Versatile ingredient for fibre-enrichment

Did you know that the almost isolated indigenous group Yanomami carries twice as many bacterial species in their microbiomes as US-Americans?

It's also a fact that the Western lifestyle, often with excessive hygiene, antibiotics, Caesarean sections and a diet containing not enough dietary fibre and too much sugar and fat, is responsible for reduced and imbalanced bacterial flora. Yet a manifold microbiome is crucial for overall health and wellbeing.

One way to reduce the negative impact of such a lifestyle is the use of enriched foods and dietary supplements as tailor-made substrates for the microbiome.

GoodMills Innovation, with its comprehensive expertise in grain-based ingredients with added health benefits, has developed High-MAC Wheat Fibre and RUTIN X. Both ingredients are ideal for gut health products, and can be used in shakes, dairy, bakery and pasta, as well as dietary supplements.
