DSM has launched a new ingredient that has been shown to help digestion in gluten-sensitive consumers.
The ingredient, a digestive enzyme called Tolerase G, can help to break down residual gluten in a meal to help prevent a reaction.
The product, however, is not intended for individuals with coeliac disease or for those who are gluten intolerant, according to DSM.
Instead, when taken before a meal, Tolerase G taken can help gluten sensitive consumers avoid a reaction from gluten when they are unable to avoid it, say at a social event or while travelling.
DSM says Tolerase G was found to degrade gluten molecules in the stomach more effectively than other commercially available supplements in a new in-vitro study published in the peer-reviewed journal, PlosONE.
Tolerase G has been developed by DSM over a number of years, and it is currently only available through select outlets in the United States only.
