Main purpose: We study the components of the gut ecosystem, with the aim of addressing three main health areas: adverse food reactions, gastrointestinal dysfunction & associated gut-brain communication, and risk of infection.


Key Goals

  • Support immune maturation in infants
  • Minimize adverse reactions to food components (lactose, gluten, food allergens, etc.)
  • Relieve intestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms in functional gastrointestinal disorders
  • Promote healthy microbiota composition
