Our Gut Health Research programme and the development of Hydrolysates
Our Gut Health Research Programme involves numerous collaborators and health providers with preclinical and clinical expertise.
The objective of our research is to determine benefits of our ingredients and the mechanisms underlying these benefits.
Our major focus is gut motility and the impacts of milk proteins.
Currently we are completing a major six-year collaborative study looking at the effect of several ingredients on various parameters of gut structure, function and health.
This involves the use of in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo models.
Preliminary results indicate our hydrolysate range may have digestive comfort benefits compared to intact casein, intact whey protein concentrate and hydrolysed soy protein.

-  DP refers to ‘degree of polymerisation’. DP3+ indicates that our GOS contains oligosaccharides with an average chain length of three or more linked saccharide units.
-  The organic lactose used in GOS manufacture has been approved by the United Kingdom’s Organic Farmers and Growers, and the China Organic Food Certification Center.
