Prenexus Health will produce one of the world’s first organic prebiotic ingredients from high fiber sugarcane for use in foods, beverages and dietary supplements.

“We’re excited to be locating our first prebiotic manufacturing site in Gilbert, Arizona” said Tim Brummels, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder for Prenexus Health. Brummels further indicated, “Arizona offers Prenexus Health an ideal location, near our vertically-integrated supply chain, along with access to a skilled labor pool.”
Prenexus Health will be producing a xylooligosaccharide (XOS) ingredient from organic-certified, non-GMO high fiber sugarcane that the company grows in the Imperial Valley of California. The manufacturing process is sustainable, utilizes no chemicals and will be organic certified.
