GOSSENCE Liquid 70 is a prebiotic comprising of Galacto-Oligosaccharides, where galactose units are linked to glucose molecules via β1-4 linkages. Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) have structural similarities to the Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO) found in mother’s milk. These naturally occurring Galacto-oligosaccharides are produced by TATA NQ via a patented process of bio-transformation of Lactose by the action of enzymes from live microbial cells.
GOSSENCETM is selectively fermented in the gut by the beneficial microflora (esp. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria) leading to increased production of short chain fatty acids. This has shown subsequent benefits of improved natural immunity, digestive & colon health and improved mineral absorption & bone health. GOSSENCE with its similarity to Human Milk Oligosaccharides finds major use in infant food and follow up formulas. As a prebiotic, it can also be used in foods, beverages and nutraceuticals for gut micro-flora maintenance and also in conjunction with probiotics.
