Montclair, California (November 6, 2020) – Ingredients by Nature (IBN)—supplier of high-quality customizable, science-based food ingredients—announced its partnership with Israel-based Galam to distribute a new prebiotic fiber, GOFOS™. IBN will be distributing the ingredient solely to the nutraceutical industry.
GOFOS is a short chain fructo-oligosaccharide (sc-FOS) that acts as a soluble, prebiotic, non-digestible fiber. Produced from non-GMO beet sugar by a proprietary enzymatic process, GOFOS promotes the growth and activity of beneficial gut microbiota and helps maintain a healthy gut. With a shortage of inulin in the market, GOFOS stands as a strong alternative for fiber fortification.
“The partnership of IBN with Galam is a perfect match to bring this superior prebiotic to the American nutraceuticals market,” said Rob Brewster, President of IBN. “In addition to providing GOFOS on its own, we will also be distributing the newly created GOFOS with ‘low water activity’ designed for greater stability when blended with our high-quality Brewster Brand probiotics, which have a symbiotic effect for enhance immune support.”>
The health benefits of GOFOS include promoted growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, weight management, blood sugar management, and enhanced immunity. An additional benefit is that sc-FOS is able to help the body better absorb calcium and magnesium, creating an excellent opportunity for the ingredient to be included in mineral blends as well.
Consumers are looking for solutions that help maintain a strong and healthier body and GOFOS is able to deliver better overall health and wellbeing at as low a dosage as 2.5g per day. GOFOS also delivers a clean sweet taste, delivering 30% the sweetness of sucrose, and is highly soluble. It is GRAS and FSMA approved, Non-GMO, allergen-free, kosher and halal, and meets the FCC monograph for Fructo-oligosaccharides.
