Human Microbiome

Cutting-Edge Microbiome Solutions

Cholesterol, obesity and other metabolic health indicators continue to gain consumers’ interest. Microbiome modulation can play an important role in improving their metabolic health, digestive health, immunity, skin health and much more. Through pre-clinical discovery and clinical investigation, ADM has a depth and breadth of expertise to support our growing range of cutting-edge microbiome solutions.

An innovative leader in the microbiome field, ADM conducted a Microbiome 2.0 research platform, leading to the discovery of ADM’s proprietary range of microbiome modulators that impact a broad span of health and wellness needs.

Our microbiome solutions include:

  • Prebiotics
  • Probiotics and Postbiotics, including proprietary, advanced single and multi-strain versions 
  • Synbiotic Formulations


Prebiotics are substrates selectively utilized by host microorganisms that confer a health benefit. They have certainly caught consumers’ attention as another way to digestive, immune and metabolic health. With their versatility and inherent stability, prebiotic ingredients are ideal for a variety of food and beverage applications, as well as supplements. 

Fibersol® is a flexible and proven, well-tolerated dietary fiber that enables better-for-you solutions. Its range of consumer-centric claims are backed by decades of extensive research. It offers clinically shown digestive health benefits. Its additional benefits include: a prebiotic effect of nourishing the intestinal microbiota, as well as satiety and post-meal blood glucose, insulin and triglyceride control benefits. Fibersol® can be incorporated in a variety of galenic formulations for both food and beverage and dietary supplements. Fibersol® also gives consumers the digestive tolerance they seek, with four times the tolerance of inulin.


Probiotics are live microorganisms that confer a health benefit on the host when administered in adequate amounts. They are credited with potential benefits that include digestive health, healthy aging, infant/early life, mental health and mood support, immune support, and overall healthy living. 

ADM Biopolis utilizes its deep know-how in microbiome science and sequencing, its C. elegans evaluation model, and in-house production facilities to design and validate processes for new product development. We establish microbial-based ingredients with strong functional characterization, especially probiotics. ADM Protexin® offers a portfolio of patented brands and probiotic strains. The range is supported with comprehensive R&D, manufacturing and sales & marketing programs, in human and animal health sectors worldwide.


Postbiotics are a preparation of inanimate microorganisms and/or their components that confer a health benefit on the host. They are gaining growing interest. Postbiotics allow the use of bacteria in harsh processing and non-traditional applications such as foods, beverages, dietary supplements and more. They offer the flexibility to be incorporated into food and beverage matrixes, since they are easy to standardize and store and have a longer shelf life.

Heat-treated BPL1, the world’s first postbiotic targeting visceral fat reduction and metabolic health, retains its functionality even in a heat-treated state. It can be used in all food and beverage applications without limitation—to bring the healthy weight and metabolic properties.
