ACCELERATING METABOLIC HEALTH
Vision: To accelerate metabolic health by restoring the gut equilibrium, naturally.
|GNUBiotics is developing a compound to reproduce the natural diversity and complexity of unique structures found in breast milk.||These structures are beneficial in preventing infections and the onset of diet-induced obesity.GNUbiotics aims at feeding the microbiome|
GUT NATURALLY UNDERSTOOD
GUT NATURALLY UNDERSTOOD
Why is the GNUbiotics ingredient unique?
- The most diverse HMO mimic product available. The more diverse the more proven efficiency.
- Ingredient produced with no GMO or enzymatic processes. 100% Natural source.
- Proven efficacy for microbiome modulation.
In response to the rising demand for healthier foods we are developing functional and structural mimics of Human Milk Oligosaccharides, (HMOs) for the consumer health market. Our products reproduce the natural diversity and complexity of HMOs and have been shown to be beneficial in preventing the onset of gut infection and protect against the effect of antibiotic use.

PRODUCT PIPELINE: MIMICS OF HUMAN MILK OLIGOSACCHARIDES MIX
A new approach: modulating the microbiome with a natural mechanism of action.
How it works: The GNUbiotics ingredient in the food or the milk, travels intact through the stomach to the gut. Once there its unique diversity helps it find and feed specific good bugs in the microbiome. It then balances the microbiome by selectively promoting the good bugs and starving the bad bugs. This could reinforce the immune defenses, calm gut inflammations and transform stored fats for elimination. Click the video below to see how it works.
GNU 100 – PET FOOD oligosaccharide mix
More than 50% of pets are overweight, therefore our first product candidate will address this obesity epidemic. GNU 100 protects the gut from external aggressions and prevents excessive weight gain.
GNU 200 – HMO mimic
GNU 200 is a natural ingredient with a high structural diversity that mimics Human Milk Oligosaccharide, targeted at infant formula manufacturers to address digestive issues due to the lack of natural sugar-diversity in infant formula.
