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 used within BiOkuris’ technology platform, where it supports the development of medical nutrition products aimed at addressing chronic intestinal diseases.

KiOtransine® is also used in products like Gastrap® Direct and is available for co-development with partners.
