Nutrasource Achieves Prebiotic Claim on PreticX®, a Xylooligosaccharide (XOS) from AIDP

GUELPH, Ontario (September 4, 2019) – Advanced Ingredients for Dietary Products (AIDP), a leading raw material supplier, has collaborated with Nutrasource Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Services (Nutrasource), a full-service contract research organization (CRO), to achieve pre-market approval for prebiotic claims on PreticX® Xylooligosaccharide (XOS).

In a rapidly evolving prebiotic and probiotic market, companies are actively looking for strategies to differentiate themselves. AIDP did not have pre-market approval or their desired claims for their branded ingredient PreticX® XOS, which created a regulatory burden for their customers. Nutrasource worked with AIDP to develop a strategic regulatory pathway for the ingredient and is now the sole prebiotic ingredient with such novel claims.

“AIDP is committed to investing in unique products like PreticX®.  Only PreticX® XOS can make the desired claims, which separates this unique product from other XOS prebiotics on the market,” says Dr. Jennifer Gu, Vice President of research and development for AIDP.  “Working with the Nutrasource team was a collaborative effort achieved by joining their regulatory expertise with our science.”

“The Nutrasource team thrives in providing novel and unique regulatory solutions for its clients,” says William Rowe, President and CEO of Nutrasource, “We are honoured to have secured these favourable regulatory results on behalf of AIDP for Canadian market access.”

Nutrasource has secured a Product License for PreticX® XOS that has meaningful claims regarding prebiotic fibre and digestive health. Through combined thought-leadership at AIDP and Nutrasrouce, AIDP has effectively differentiated themselves in this product category while offering a competitive advantage to its customers.
