THE ITALIAN STARTUPS:
 

logo BioErg NextDext BIOERG
BIOerg has developed a high molecular-weight Dextran with its fermentation technology with a specific protected microbial strain (as described into the international patent PCT/EP2014/000360 - B0497WO). NEXTDEXT® is the name of the brand for next-generation dextran: a natural ingredient applied as tichkener, stabilizer, emulsifier, prebiotic for nutraceuticals and functional food and as bioflocculant. NEXTDEXT® is a microbial biodegradable and biocompatible HoPS, based on alpha-1,6 glycosidic linkages on the main chain, able to modulate rheological properties of mixtures and it may be used to replace or reduce more expensive hydrocolloids. NEXTDEXT should be the right choice for a multitasking natural ingredient with prebiotic effect, useful also to obtain microcapsule for targeted drug delivery. The trend of nutraceutical market is based on ‘personalised nutrition’, with particular attention to personalised microbiome (mapping the human gut microbiome). Our aim to demonstrate the effects of using dextran as prebiotic ingredient and to compare its activity with the others actually present into the market, to find out new business opportunities. We explore new applications for high molecular weight native dextran powder (NEXTDEXT), such as (1) prebiotics for nutraceuticals, (2) gluten-free thickener, emulsifier and stabilizer for functional food, and (3) bio flocculant for water treatment. Dextran itself is not a new substance, but unique patents based on high-molecular Dextran were applied and/or granted recently. Even global conglomerates still research Dextran for their new developments. We will keep seeking new opportunities with our next-generation Dextran NEXTDEXT® due to low cost of the final product despite of actual market prices. Competitive strategy is based both on market advantage (close competitive environment), because NEXTDEXT is differently positioned - it is not an additive but an ingredient (in line with UE trend of clean label) – and on maximum differentiation, because NEXTDEXT® is an ingredient and a prebiotic at the same time.
