The introduction of Bioligo GOSs provides infant formula, functional food, beverage and dietary supplement manufacturers with a new, safe, high-quality source of prebiotic soluble fiber to enhance the nutritional profile of their products. Bioligo GL 5700 IMF is made from food-grade lactose; it comes in the form of a syrup and contains a minimum of 57 percent GOS on a dry basis. It is stable in high-temperature processes and low-pH applications, making it suitable for a range of formulations from shelf-stable beverages and juices to nutritional bars and supplements, the company adds.
