A healthy microbiome is typically known to have a direct impact on gut health and digestion—and awareness is increasing surrounding its potential to positively influence areas ranging from immune health and satiety to blood sugar management, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and more. On top of that, it may also enable people to better cope with life’s stressors … something that’s never been more important. This session will feature emerging science, product development opportunities and challenges, plus a robust discussion—supported by consumer research and insights—on how best to translate emerging science into market-changing successes.

Attendees will learn about:

  • The latest consumer and dietitian data and insights from prebiotic users and influencers

  • Promising prebiotic science beyond digestion and fiber

  • Current status in defining prebiotics

  • Challenges, opportunities and the future for product development

  • How prebiotics factor into the exploding "microbiome" space and how to take advantage of this macro-interest area
