  • May reduce the duration of minor upper respiratory symptoms by 2 days in elite athletes

The claims, underpinned by scientific studies and clinical trials, can be used on food products containing Bimuno GOS. “The addition of seven new food-health relationship claims with FSANZ represents a significant step forward in our mission to offer the very best in gut health innovation, and a fantastic achievement for our team. Science and substantiated evidence are at the heart of everything we do, and that resonates with today’s consumer needs,” said Lucie Nagy, general counsel for Clasado Biosciences, in a press release. "As the science and regulation around prebiotics develops, there is significant opportunity on the table for health and nutrition brands in supporting gastrointestinal, immune, cognitive and athletic health. And, through the hard work of our regulatory team, formulators can access these claims for their own products."

"The rising recognition of the health advantages and remarkable stability of prebiotic fibres is driving their prominence in new product innovation, and we are delighted to supply Bimuno GOS to formulators across Australia and New Zealand that are seeking a scientifically backed functional core ingredient,” added Wayne Coote, found and managing director of Pathway International.
