FrieslandCampina Ingredients (Amersfoort, The Netherlands) launched Biotis SleepWell, formulated with its prebiotic Biotis GOS (galacto-oligosaccharide), amino acids such as tryptophan and cysteine, vitamins, and minerals. It helps people fall asleep, sleep through the night, and wake up refreshed. The ingredient can be used in a beverage, shot, or powder application. 

“We call Biotis a new era in ingredient science,” said Vicky Davies, global marketing director, performance, active and medical nutrition, at FrieslandCampina Ingredients, in a press release. “We’re so excited about the potential of our premium galacto-oligosaccharides. This ingredient has a long-established presence in the infant nutrition space, and now it’s time for adults to experience the benefits of GOS, too. In June, we launched Biotis Gut Health, the first in the range, and over the next few months, new Biotis Health Benefit Solutions will reveal how GOS and our other key science-backed ingredients can be leveraged in unique combinations to support maternal health, immune health, and more.”

Jouke Veldman, head of the Biotis SleepWell team, FrieslandCampina Ingredients, said, “We continue to believe in and champion the power of science. Biotis Sleepwell has shown statistically significant improvements in sleep quality, both in several consumer trials and more recently in clinical trials, and there is even more research forthcoming. It’s a uniquely multi-faceted, versatile ingredient that represents what Biotis stands for as a whole: going one step further in developing solutions that expertly respond to both human health needs and consumer wellness preferences over the course of life.”
