The fibre found in grain has inherent nutritional benefits for enhancing foods. Fibre has a well-established nutritional value. Fiber used as a prebiotic promotes healthy gut bacteria and is now believed to have impacts on everything from serious illness to mental health. The full potential of fibre as a medicinal and heath food supplement is yet to be realised.
The independent Dublin based Pure Fiber Ltd has been mentored by ClonBio to develop new generation prebiotics as a feed ingredient. The prebiotics are composed of oligosaccharides from arabinoxylan (AXOS). AXOS is a new generation of soluble prebiotic fibers obtained from the bran of corn that is scheduled to be launched in 2019. The AXOS is extracted through a fibre separation and enzymatic process at the Group’s Pannonia Bio biorefinery.
