The Global Prebiotic Association (GPA), the worldwide resource for prebiotic education, insights and awareness building, is delighted to announce the addition of five new members. ADM and Aquamin join GPA at the Member level and Anderson Advanced Ingredients, Next Trillion Sciences and Traverse Science, Inc. join GPA as Associate Members. Based on the rising interest of academics, researchers and individuals, GPA has also launched a Professional membership option.

“The prebiotic market continues to expand and interest in the category and in GPA is sky rocketing,” said GPA Executive Director Len Monheit. “We are thrilled to welcome these new members who represent diverse parts of the industry and help expand GPA’s reach.”

GPA has also introduced a Professional Membership level open to researchers and academics, a level also available to individuals whose companies are perhaps too broad in their product sets to justify a full corporate membership, yet who want to engage and participate in the Association. Students may also join at this level.

“Connecting with the scientific community is a huge priority. We saw a growing need for a membership level for individuals who want to engage with the prebiotic community,” stated Monheit.

A prebiotic is a nutritional product or ingredient selected to be utilized in the microbiome producing health benefits. Prebiotics play an important role in the human microbiome: their role is to support & feed, increase & produce and balance & optimize.
