Vegetal Chitin-glucan

New complex insoluble biopolymer

KitoZyme has discovered and patented a novel biopolymer that is extracted from the cell walls of fungi. Chitin glucan is a complex tridimensional structure that combines two types of polysaccharide chains: chitin and beta (1,3) glucan.

Manufactured in Belgium under a strict quality management system ISO 13485 and HACCP, Chitin-glucan is classified as FDA-GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) and as a novel food in the European Union.

Health

KiOtransine is a prebiotic fiber that restores intestinal microbiota, supports digestive health and improves transit. This insoluble fiber is slowly fermented all the way along the colon, producing short-chain fatty acids, butyrate and propionate, with a low level of gas.

It also helps to support the body’s natural antioxidant systems and reduces oxidized LDL-cholesterol levels.
KiOtransine is included in our following finished products: Gastrap Direct, TransiBiota, TransiRelax, FiberSlim, YAW Fit&Detox and YAW Balance. It is also available to our partners for the co-development of new formulations.
