Livaux® is prebiotic of the year

Have you ever heard of an ingredient winning 4 NutraIngredients Awards? Livaux® by Anagenix has been chosen for the Ingredient of the Year in the Prebiotic category award by NutraIngredients USA for the second time! Congratulations!

What are NutraIngredients USA Awards?

NutraIngredients USA Awards honor the best and brightest in ingredients, finished products, companies, people, and initiatives in the nutrition and dietary supplements industry. 2022 is the 5th year the awards have been given out.

This year there were 17 award categories to enter. Therefore the awards covered a more diverse topic than ever before.

Prebiotic of the Year

The Prebiotic category, in which Livaux® was awarded, aims to celebrate the best ingredients dedicated to selectively promoting the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the GI tract.

All ingredients with demonstrable prebiotic activity were eligible for entry into this category. From established ingredients to emerging fibers, polyphenols, and other non-digestible food ingredients, this award celebrates ingredients designed to meet specific demands in the prebiotic category.

“A winner in 2020, Livaux® again put forward a strong application, citing good studies. The ingredient, which is effective at 2-3 grams per day, has experienced impressive growth over the 12 months,” said the judges. “Livaux®’s focus on beneficial bacteria Faecalibacterium prausnitzii F.prau remains a novel approach and a differentiator in an emerging category of prebiotics.”
