The link between gut health and overall health is well established in the mind of consumers: a healthy gut has a positive influence on both physical and mental health. The topic of gut health is rapidly gaining popularity among consumers and, as the result, gaining traction in the food industry. At Puratos, we never stop exploring, thinking, discovering, and developing new ways to make the most out of ingredients that consumers need: from the tastiest fibers to our new Happy Gut sourdough ingredients.
Thanks to our 100 years of expertise in bakery innovation, we have been able to combine the art of bread with the science of gut health to create the Happy Gut portfolio. Happy Gut products are specifically designed to increase the fiber content of finished goods and help consumers reach the recommended levels of dietary fiber while delivering great taste and texture.
What can you expect from the next generation of Happy Gut solutions? At Puratos, we are constantly striving to increase our positive impact by creating innovative food solutions that promote health & well-being and steadily move businesses, customers, people and the planet forward. Moreover, we also continually invest in research and consumer understanding to develop the most irresistible products with gut health benefits.
Dietary fibers are known for their health benefits and microbiome modulation properties. However, not all fibers perform alike. As a fermentation expert, Puratos utilizes fermentation power to boost dietary fiber's nutritional, functional, and prebiotic potential.
We are embarked on a mission to transform bread, a global staple food product, into a vehicle to deliver postbiotic compounds to help consumers maintain a healthy and stable gut microbiome.
THT aims to demonstrate the health benefits of lactic acid bacteria present in sourdough. In addition, THT provides consumers with valuable lactic acid bacteria strains for nutraceutical applications.
