A healthy gut is connected to our overall health and wellness. Using our Forager AI-powered platform, we set out to find new solutions to keep our gut strong.
Forager identified two powerful bioactive compounds, N-trans-caffeoyl tyramine (NCT) and N-trans-feruloyl tyramine (NFT) with potential gut health benefits, and we validated their effect to support gut strength through pre-clinical studies. Forager was then able to identify NCT and NFT in 80 different plant sources—and identified hemp hulls, the shells of the hemp seed, as the richest known source of these compounds.
Brightseed developed a proprietary process to transform the hemp hulls into a dietary fiber ingredient with a high concentration of the bioactives, and named it Brightseed Bio 01™.
Introducing Brightseed Bio 01, the only hemp fiber for functional food and beverages with two unique bioactives to support gut strength. Emerging research demonstrates that NCT & NFT show promise to support gut strength and gut lining to maintain healthy gut barrier function. Brightseed Bio 01 helps elevate functional foods and beverages delivering consumers an efficient and unique source of fiber and support for gut strength benefits, powered by bioactives.
*Pre-clinical data demonstrates supporting strength of the gut lining (gut integrity) to help maintain gut barrier function and gut health.
Going Beyond Gut RegularitySupports gut health and gut lining for healthy gut barrier function.
Natural & Novel BioactivesThe only hemp fiber containing bioactives NCT & NFT for healthy gut strength.
Upcycled Whole Food IngredientFound by Forager and derived from upcycled hemp hulls, Brightseed Bio 01 is a whole food ingredient made from industrial-grade hemp.
Effective Fiber SourceA high concentration of dietary fiber makes it easier to achieve a good source of fiber in finished products.
Bioactives are compounds that play a role in human health. Some are well known—like caffeine in tea or curcumin in turmeric — but many remain undiscovered. Through our AI platform Forager, we can discover compounds and connect them to health benefits with a speed and accuracy that was previously impossible. These discoveries have led to an IP-protected pipeline of bioactives and novel, science-backed functional ingredients for food, beverage, and supplement applications so consumers can experience the benefits of bioactives.
