Clasado Biosciences is a leading global galactooligosaccharide manufacturer, and the developer and manufacturer of Bimuno, a targeted prebiotic which can be added to food, drink or supplement formulations.
Its stability and versatility make it an ideal addition for a wide range of applications, supporting formulators in the creation of high-performance, scientifically supported products that engage today’s consumer.
Interest and awareness of gut health is rapidly climbing, making it the ideal time for brands to explore the health benefits of a proven, high-performance prebiotic. Bimuno can add value to products such as standalone supplements (including synbiotics), functional foods and beverages, sports supplements and beyond.
Studies into the effect of Bimuno GOS also indicates a valuable role in supporting digestive symptoms associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), such as bloating, flatulence and digestive discomfort.
Available in both prebiotic syrup and prebiotic powder form, the patent-protected technology is a blend of non-digestible Galactooligosaccharides (GOS) that passes through the upper gastrointestinal tract until it reaches the colon, where it enhances the production and activity of beneficial gut bacteria. The ingredient provides a high-performance alternative to fructooligosaccharides, oligofructose (FOS) and xylooligosaccharides (XOS).
To build commercial success, brands must meet the rapidly accelerating consumer demand for everyday gut health solutions that make better nutrition part of the daily routine. Bimuno is perfectly placed as a scientifically supporting prebiotic ingredient, backed by a comprehensive portfolio of research, consisting of over 100 scientific publications.
Benefits of Bimuno GOS
Bimuno prebiotic selectively targets and increases the levels of bifidobacteria, a type of beneficial gut bacteria that is associated with key areas of physical and mental health. Bifidobacteria displays biological activities that impact the gut, immune system, mental health and cognition, as well as overall health and wellbeing.
The most studied prebiotic of its kind, the research behind Bimuno will be of particular interest for brands developing products to improve gastrointestinal health, immune health, cognitive health and everyday wellbeing. The following areas are supported by human clinical trials and many are also supported by preclinical in vivo and in vitro studies.
Bimuno GOS is clinically proven to support:
• Prebiotic Activity • Digestive Health & Wellbeing • Immune System Modulation • Metabolic Syndrome • Antipathogenic Activity • Brain Health, Function & Mood • Athlete Performance/Health
Multi-pronged impact on health
Clasado Biosciences believes that through utilising its comprehensive portfolio of scientific studies and taking a consumer-led approach to ingredient development, digestive health can be made simpler for the consumer and product developer alike. Examples of its use in application includes prebiotic yoghurts, protein powders, prebiotic cereals and food and dietary supplements.
The inclusion of Bimuno prebiotic as an ingredient in your products offers an effective way to add value and functionality, reflected in the category’s growing popularity and use across markets. The prebiotic fibre category is expected to maintain a high compound annual growth rate of 10% based on global market projections.
The high stability of Bimuno makes it suitable for a very wide range of products and applications.

Bimuno is available as both powder and syrup ingredient formats.
