Market Players Adopting Plant-based Galacto Oligosaccharide to Broaden their ‘Lactose Intolerant’ Product Portfolio
Galacto oligosaccharide (GOS) is gaining significant uptake in the infant nutrition industry on account of positive perception about its therapeutic effect on gut health and immunity development.
Increase in the number of lactose intolerant population continues to be a challenge for policy makers.
According to a journal published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2017, around 70% of the world’s population suffer from lactose intolerance due to a genetically programmed gradual decline in lactase expression, known as lactase non-persistence (LNP).
The availability of plant-based galacto oligosaccharide has proven to be highly beneficial with regards to meeting the nutritional requirements of the lactose intolerant population.
The infant nutrition industry will be looking to capitalize on the opportunity presented by commercialization of plant-based galacto oligosaccharides.
FDA Approval Likely to Provide the Much-needed Fillip to Galacto Oligosaccharide Demand
