Tolerase® G

Available in the US only at this time

Gluten is a protein complex found in wheat, barley and rye. It gives breads and other grain products their shape, strength and texture. Gluten is a hard to digest protein, since it is rich in the amino acid proline. The human body cannot break down proline-rich proteins such as gluten efficiently and this may be why some people are sensitive to dietary gluten.

As gluten is present in many different foods, following a gluten-free diet is difficult. And even with a gluten-free diet, it is almost impossible to fully avoid gluten intake. There is still the risk of unintentional intake of gluten. Studies show that even when following a gluten-free diet, unintentional gluten intake can range from 200 mg/day to up to 3000 mg/day, depending on how strict a gluten-free dieter is.

DSM’s unique enzyme Tolerase® G helps digest gluten and support your life style.

Tolerase® G is a is a proline-specific digestive enzyme. The enzyme is designed to have optimal activity under the harsh conditions of the stomach.

It is the first and only enzyme shown to be effective in a human clinical study. It’s also demonstrated to be more effective than leading enzymes on the market that claim to help digest gluten. Tolerase® G works on both low- and high-caloric meals.

Tolerase® G  is not intended to replace a gluten-free diet and is not intended to treat or prevent celiac disease.

In the US, GlutnGo™ from Bricker Labs and SpectraZyme® from Metagenics® contain Tolerase® G.

Efficacy of Tolerase® G

A scientific study shows that existing products on the market digest gluten slowly and incompletely.

DSM has worked for 7 years to build a solid scientific package (including human clinical data) proving that Tolerase® G efficiently digests gluten.
