Olygose range of ingredients granted with 2 new health claims in the European Union !


Olygose is pleased to announce that its range of ingredients has been granted two new health claims in the European Union following the public

Products containing Olygose alpha-galacto-oligosaccharides in replacement of sugar or fermentable carbohydrates will be allowed to use the following health claims :

  • « Consumption of foods/drinks containing alpha-galacto-oligosaccharides instead of fermentable carbohydrates contributes to the maintenance of tooth mineralisation. »
  • « Consumption of foods/drinks containing alpha-galacto-oligosaccharides instead of sugars induces a lower blood glucose rise after their consumption compared to sugar-containing foods/drinks. »

Olygose received a favourable opinion from European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) on an article 13(5) claim application back in 2014, supporting the effect of alpha-galacto-oligosaccharides on the lowering of glycemic response (EFSA Journal 2014;12(10):3838).

This approval highlights the health claim-focused approach of Olygose since its inception in 2009 and rewards important market-oriented R&D efforts.
