What is Gofos
GOFOS ™ is a sweet and tasty soluble prebiotic fiber that consists of approximately 95% of
short-chain fructooligosaccharides (sc-FOS). sc-FOS occurs naturally in small amounts
in many fruits and vegetables such as: onions, garlic, bananas and asparagus.
GOFOS ™ is produced from beet sugar using a unique enzymatic process that leads to
to the formation of three components: GF2 (approximately 37%), GF3 (approximately 53%)
and GF4 (approximately 10%), with guaranteed proportions. GOFOS ™: available in liquid and powder form.
Soluble in water
For the producer.
GOFOS ™ is an effective prebiotic additive to improve intestinal health, generating significant economic benefits.
• Lower medical costs.
• Better survival rates.
• Save on other food additives.
• Reduction of antibiotics.
For the animal.
• Lactobacillus spp. guard against invading pathogens.
• Bifidus bacteria reduce the number of opportunistic bacteria and potential pathogens.
• SCFA lowers intestinal pH and reduces pathogen risks.
GOFOS ™ + PROBIOTICS = THE IDEAL SOLUTION
Symbiotics are dietary supplements, a mixture of probiotics and prebiotics that affect
positively the survival and implementation of beneficial bacteria in the intestine.
Health effects in poultry and pigs
• Benefits of intestinal microbial ecology.
• Increases the production of SCFA in the colon.
• Reduces the concentration of putrefactive compounds.
• Increases the absorption of nutrients.
• Effects of intestinal morphology: increase in height of ileal villi, jejunal and ileal microvilli.
In poultry: limits the growth of pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella spp. and E. coli.
In pigs: increases growth performance and ADG (average daily weight gain).
Health effects on fish
• Helps control nitrogen waste.
• Improves resistance to the pathogen.
• Increases the immune response by altering the composition of the intestinal microflora.
GOFOS ™ is a cost-effective prebiotic fiber that enhances your product,
to meet consumer demands
of healthy pet food.
GOFOS ™ is suitable for use on wet and dry food.
The best for your pet
Pet owners consider them to be part of their family and are increasingly aware of the importance of nutrition for their overall health and well-being. Human health and wellness trends are transferring to the pet food market, faster than ever. Pet owners are interested in the quality of their diet and look for foods that are enriched with healthy ingredients. Gut health is a growing trend in the pet food industry, where it is well known that maintaining a healthy gut is essential to its well-being and a long, happy life. The populations of beneficial bacteria that colonize the pet's intestine play a fundamental role in their health, since they are involved in nutritional, functional and immunological processes.
GOFOS ™ is suitable for canned and dry foods:
is stable under pasteurization and extrusion conditions, pH (> 4)
GOFOS ™ provides functional, nutritional benefits
and for health that help manufacturers to comply
with the demands of sugar reduction, enrichment
fiber and gut health without compromising taste and texture.
We are what we eat
It is a well-known fact that what we eat and drink directly affects our physical health, mental well-being, and performance. This is why people are looking for ways to improve their diets, manage healthier lifestyles, and pay more attention to what they eat. The list of ingredients, nutritional values and statements on the product package influence your purchase decision. One example is how consumers are constantly looking for ways to improve their diets by reducing sugar and enriching their fiber intake. Since sugars are not only sweet but also provide texture, mouthfeel, volume, flavor, and moisture, the challenge for manufacturers is to deliver low-sugar products while providing consistent flavor and texture.
