As the interest in gut health and its potential impact on overall health and wellness continues to grow so do the opportunities to introduce new ingredients for food & beverage, nutraceutical and pharma applications. However, fully understanding the impact of a new or existing ingredient on gut health under real-life conditions is unfortunately plagued by uncertainty and high cost.

StudyGut is a service that allows ingredient companies to carry out explorative gut health studies of new or existing active ingredients across large populations, under real-life conditions and at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional pre-clinical and clinical studies.


  • Total solution from the recruitment and selection of participants to the packaging of ingredients, testing and analysis of participant gut health data and presentation of results
  • Ability to demonstrate efficacy of an ingredient under real-life conditions, across large defined populations and extended periods of time, before investing in expensive pre-clinical and clinical studies
  • Ability to test different blends and/or ingredient dosing’s over time based on participant results, thus even allowing for personalized intervention
  • Ability to customize lab analysis to target specific bacteria of interest
  • Real-time results based on monthly participant gut-health testing and tracking provides key insights for study managers and motivation for participants
  • On-line UI allowing for multiparameter analysis of data ensures that no key trends or results are missed
