Galam, a global manufacturer of ingredients for the food and animal nutrition industries, has recently launched two new production plants for sc-FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides/oligofructose), both with a strict quality control system and a capacity of thousands of tons.

The plant located in Israel specializes in FOS production in powder form and exports worldwide, while the plant in Spain (Barcelona) specializes in liquid FOS production in order to support the European market.

Galam's short chain sc-FOS (branded as GOFOS™) is produced from beet sugar by a unique proprietary enzymatic process.

"Based on the vast technological experience that Galam has obtained over the past 80 years and our understanding of the market, we have decided to invest $20M in our new facilities," says Liad Cohen, CEO. "The world’s demand for prebiotic fibers in general and FOS in particular is rapidly increasing and Galam is working on being a major supplier of high quality sc-FOS in this growing worldwide market."

Sc-FOS is one of the most researched prebiotics, with supported scientific evidence demonstrating that consumption of this prebiotic fiber brings about a range of health benefits by providing balanced gut microbiota resulting in wellbeing in both humans and animals.

"Short chain fructo-oligosaccharides (sc-FOS) are one group of strong prebiotics highly known and documented for their beneficial roles in colon wellbeing," says Dr. Fernando Schved, VP R&D, Support & CSO at Galam. "The shorter oligosaccharides consisting of sc-FOS have been documented to be effectively fermented thus providing a proven prebiotic effect at lower doses."
