Heagreen XOS

Definition: XOS is a mixed long and short chain oligosaccharide of X2-X9. Source: Extracted from corncobs

XOS Prebiotics characteristics
Super prebiotics

The effective dosage of XOS is only 0.7g/day. In addition to the application of conventional dosage forms, the low usage level and high efficiency have obvious advantages in food applications with low fill volume dosage forms, such as tablets, capsules, gummies, etc.

Direct targeted activation of Bifidobacteria

Studies have shown that XOS resulted in a significant increase in the genus Bifidobacterium, and do not directly change the structure of microecological flora, but significantly increases the abundance of beneficial bacteria, increase the proportion of beneficial bacteria, and activates intestinal microecology.

Lowest human digestibility

With a human digestibility of only 0.4%, XOS can almost completely pass through the upper digestive system, reach the distal intestinal tract, and stimulate probiotics of the human intestinal tract in full volume.

Friendly accompanying ingredients

The main accompanying components of Heagren XOS are xylose and arabinose, which are also components that cannot be metabolized by the human body, and these accompanying components also have excellent functional characteristics.

Easy-to-use prebiotics

Heagreen XOS has excellent processing performance, stable over a wide range of pH and temperature, XOS solution has no obvious change in the range of pH 2.5-11 when heated at 100 °C for 1 h, and no change at pH 4 and 180 °C for 30 min.

Ultra-low water activity

The ultra-low water activity of 0.10 is lower than the water activity requirement of the probiotics industry (less than 0.15), which ensures the maintenance of bacteria activity during the shelf life of probiotic products and reduces the drying process added by the co-formulation manufacturers to control the water activity, which reduces the production cost, production process and the risk of poor quality.

Lean technology platform
XOS process technology platform

As the industrialization base of XOS application development of National Functional Food Engineering Research Center, Heagreen Bio-technology strives for perfection in XOS process technology and keeps self-innovation in order to provide customers with XOS products of stable quality and performance.

Prebiotics application technology platform

Focusing on prebiotics such as XOS, build a scientific foundation for the development of new products such as FMCG food, functional foods, and microecological preparations.

Clinical and genomics research platform

Continuously explore the microecological mechanism and efficacy of XOS, and do a good job in the management, storage and mining of microecological scientific data.

Production technology
Molecular fragmentation and enzyme engineering technology

The composite enzymolysis technology with the integration of multiple enzyme systems was adopted to realize the conversion of raw materials from the complex macromolecular structure of biomass to the target oligosaccharide molecular structure, and the conversion process was less energy consumption, no pollution and less byproducts.

Membrane integration technology
Using a variety of membrane composite technology to physically separate, purify and concentrate material molecules, which is a low energy consumption, environmentally friendly production method.
Vacuum low temperature drying technology
By creating a negative pressure environment and lowering the boiling point of water, the product can be dried quickly with low energy consumption, so that the product has the characteristics of high density, strong moisture absorption resistance and low water activity.
