Carbiotix is an award-winning personalized nutrition company focused on consumer gut health solutions and microbiome therapeutics.
Carbiotix was founded in 2014 as a spin-off company from the Department of Biotechnology at Lund University, Sweden, the largest university in the Nordic Region and a global top 100 university. The company’s soluble fiber ingredient AXOS was selected as a top new ingredient by the Nutrition Capital Network (NCN) in Europe and the US in 2015. In 2016, an Irish-based company called Pure Fiber Limited was formed to commercialize the AXOS technology. In 2017, Carbiotix shifted focus to consumer gut health solutions using affordable microbiome testing, and in early 2018 launched its LoveGut and PersonalGut services. In late 2018, the company began to leverage its consumer platform to ramp up therapeutics development activities in line with its long-term strategy.
