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 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.
DSM's Tolerase® G is for consumers with gluten sensitivity – those who are already following a gluten-free diet but want help breaking down residual gluten to support their lifestyle and give them peace of mind.
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 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.
