Good day letter for Clasado, as FDA has no objections over Bimuno prebiotic’s GRAS status for formula

Prebiotic player Clasado has been granted GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) classification for its Bimuno ingredient for term infant formula and follow-on formula.

Bimuno is a trans-galactooligosaccharide (GOS) second generation prebiotic, and had already recently received GRAS certification (GRN 000484), through scientific procedures, for use as an ingredient in a variety of food and beverage categories at levels ranging from 0.8 to 3.0 grams per serving (g/serving).

The ingredient has now also received GRAS certification (GRN 000495) for use as an ingredient in term infant formula and follow-on formula at up to 7.2 grams per liter (g/L) of reconstituted or ready-to-consume product.

“This recent GRAS approval for Clasado’s Bimuno is an important support to our commercial activity alongside our extensive program of scientific trials. Both of these continue to re-enforce and certify the various health benefits of Bimuno,” said Graham Waters, CEO, Clasado Inc.
