As prebiotics have proven beneficial effects on gut health and immunity* and thanks to its dairy origin and properties, SICAGOS is suitable for food and nutritional applications to which it can provide valuable benefits such as:

  • Supporting a nutritional positioning strategy that meets consumer requests to easily consume fibre through daily food
  • Contributing to a reduced-sugar objective as it can partially replace glucose and/or saccharose, and as fibre allows a lower calorie intake.


Boosting functionalities in food applications
