GOS & FOS (9:1)

A resilient immune system is essential for overall growth and development of an infant. However, the infant's immune and gastrointestinal system are still in the developing phase, especially in the 1st year of life, making them vulnerable to allergy, respiratory ailments and GI infection. Research suggests that Prebiotic GOS:FOS in the blend of 9:1 ratio have a significant role to play in building infant's immunity and for allergy management.




Human milk is the ideal source of nutrition conferring various health benefits to the infant owing to its unique & complex composition.

Components of human milk that support infant immunity comprise of PREBIOTIC oligosaccharides, beneficial bacterial species such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli in addition to the other macro and micronutrients.

Oligosaccharides And Infant Immunity

HMOs are essential components of human milk that have both direct communication with the immune cell, and probiotic capability. A dietary intervention supplemented with Galactooligosaccharides (GOS) and fructooligosaccharides (FOS) (9:1 [weight/weight] ) can function as prebiotic and has an immunomodulatory effect similar to HMOs.

Strengthening Immunity Using the Biotic Family In Early Life

Lifestyle factors such as diet, antibiotics, and exposure to the environment can modulate the composition of the gut microbiome. Gut microbiota has a profound effect on the host’s immunity and may produce a transgenerational impact on the health of the progeny. This article discusses the gut microbiota dysbiosis and the effect of prebiotics and probiotics on host health through microbiota modulation.
