Scientific affairs

Scientific Affairs set up clinical and preclinical nutrition studies and work with the most qualified academic research centres to continually improve formulation concepts of foods dedicated to specific nutrition and health purposes. 
Research at Tereos Starch & Sweeteners involves the most up-to-date methodologies applied in human nutrition, such as metagenomics. It leads to peer-reviewed scientific publications, communications in international congresses and provides accurate scientific support to answer the market expectations on nutrition.

The team translates the latest scientific findings in new product ideas that contribute to nutritional improvements.
Tereos Starch & Sweeteners makes this information available for its customers on demand, and is also participating in various conferences within the scientific community.

Examples of clinical and preclinical studies:

  • Postprandial glycaemic and insulinaemic responses after consumption of dessert creams containing maltitol and fructo-oligosaccharides in adults.
  • Effects of short-chain fructooligosaccharides on faecal bifidobacteria and specific immune response in formula-fed infants.
  • Short-Chain Fructo-Oligosaccharides modulate intestinal microbiota and metabolic parameters of humanized gnotobiotic diet induced obesity mice.
  • Effects of regular consumption of short-chain fructo-oligosaccharides on digestive comfort of subjects with minor functional bowel disorders.
