Personalized Nutrition - Our Nutritional Approach
Our nutritional philosophy is that patients require personalized nutrition that fits their specific needs caused by their disease. Not all illnesses impact the body’s metabolism in the same way. Malnutrition associated with illness is caused by multiple factors which are driven by the age of the patient, type and stage of disease, nutritional deficiencies, and impact of therapeutic treatments.
Our goal is to provide nutritional rescue products scientifically designed to address and overcome deficiencies in specific patient populations related to their disease. With the advice of medical professionals and expert scientific advisors we are formulating personalized nutritional products that deliver to patients what they need to help restore their personal health. At GlycosBio we are taking nutrition to the next level.
Clean Medical Foods
Our products are based on all-natural plant-derived clean ingredients that are restructured using our patented technology to generate elemental components the body uses directly without pancreatic enzymatic processing. Our approach to medical food development is to provide nutritional foods that are gentle for the digestive system, reduce systemic inflammation, and provide energy and strength with as little effort as possible for the body. GlycosBio is providing belly-ready foods to support kids and adults struggling to meet their caloric needs whether that be due to cystic fibrosis, pancreatitis, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, COPD, cancer, malnutrition or for any other reason.
PERT-Free™ brand products
Introducing the first medical food specifically designed for cystic fibrosis patients that bypasses the need for enzymatic replacement therapy for exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). Without pancreatic enzymatic replacement therapy (PERT), patients cannot digest the fats in food, losing absorption of valuable calories, fat soluble vitamins and micronutrients, resulting in malnutrition. Our first products were developed to address the problem of malnutrition in the 85-90% of cystic fibrosis patients with EPI.
PERT-Free™ is GlycosBio’s new brand of plant-based nutritional products, including nutritional shakes containing essential lipids, proteins, and micronutrients in a restructured bio-available state ready for gastrointestinal absorption. Our mission is to ensure health challenged populations, such as individuals with compromised pancreatic activity or increased resting energy requirements, as in COPD and cancer, remain strong and nourished. PERT-Free™ shakes provide bioavailable nutrition by providing the components in a pre-digested state simulating normal digestion outside of the body, making the nutrients readily available for absorption after ingestion.
The underlying Nutrition Restructuring Technology™ that created the breakthrough is a platform technology for developing other advanced medical food products, including pipeline products for first-to-market nutritional plant-based beverages and solid foods for cystic fibrosis, EPI, cancer, and more. The basic formula can be easily expanded to other food products including yogurts, ice creams, and baby formulas, and for markets such as cognitive health, veterinary medicine, beauty products, and more.

PERT-Free Nutrition™ Technology Platform
GlycosBio’s Monomega™ food products contain natural triglyceride-free (TAG-free) plant oils the body needs for cell growth and cell maintenance. Triglycerides are hard to digest for an individual with a compromised digestive system. GlycosBio jump starts the digestive process outside the body, providing a high performance food delivery system for calorie dense nutrition for compromised patients.
These high performance medical foods enable absorption for patients with impaired pancreatic lipase activity.
What are Medical Foods?
The use of Medical Foods are managed under the supervision of a physician. The nutrition is intended for the dietary management of a specific disease or condition for which distinctive nutritional requirements must be met. These requirements are based on recognized scientific principles and are established by medical evaluation.
