Gluten sensitivity is a growing concern for consumers

Gluten, a protein complex found in wheat, barley and rye, 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 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, there is still a risk of unintentional intake of gluten. That is why Tolerase® G was developed.

Tolerase® G - effectively breaking down residual gluten

Tolerase® G is a proline-specific digestive enzyme designed to have optimal activity within the stomach's harsh conditions. It is the first and only enzyme shown to be effective in several human studies.

Nearly 50 percent of the world’s population is lactose intolerant

Lactose is a milk sugar that is naturally present in dairy products. It is digested by the enzyme lactase into glucose and galactose, which are absorbed into the bloodstream. People with lactose-intolerance lack this enzyme and as a result are unable to digest lactose fully, which often leads to uncomfortable symptoms.


Tolerase® L gives consumers the freedom to enjoy dairy products

Tolerase® L is a highly efficacious enzyme that helps to reduce discomfort associated with lactose intolerance. With low cost-in-use and excellent tabletting properties, it is ideal for use in dietary supplements.
