Increased Milk Yield and Reduced Enteric Methane Concentration on a Commercial Dairy Farm Associated with Dietary Inclusion of Sugarcane Extract (Saccharum officinarum)

Enteric methane emissions from ruminants have emerged as a major challenge to the global agriculture industry. This study aimed to evaluate natural sugarcane extract’s potential to mitigate these emissions in a commercial dairy environment and assess any impact on milk production and composition. The results of this study indicate a significant increase in milk production, with less methane detected across the herd.

Dose-Dependency of the Glycemic Response to Polyphenol-Rich Sugarcane Extract (PRSE)

The study aimed to investigate the effect of adding different doses of polyphenol-rich sugarcane extract (PRSE) to sucrose to lower the postprandial glycemia of the participants in a non-randomized study. The results of this study indicate that PRSE-coated sugar can lower postprandial glycemia in normal individuals. Additionally, decreasing GI values with an increasing concentration of polyphenols suggests a dose-dependent effect between polyphenol levels and GI.

The Effects of a Natural Polyphenol Extract from Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum) on the Growth, Survival, and Feed Conversion Efficiency of Juvenile Black Tiger Shrimp (Penaeus monodon)

In this trial, the effect of dietary addition of the polyphenol-rich sugarcane extract (PRSE) Polygain™ obtained from sugarcane was evaluated on the growth, survival, feed conversion ratio, and pathogen loading of black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) in a smallscale intensive rearing system.

Sugarcane polyphenol and fiber to affect production of short-chain fatty acids and microbiota composition

A study TPM completed with Melbourne University recently appeared in Food Chemistry Journal. We examined the effects of sugarcane polyphenol and fiber (Phytolin™ + Fiber) on gut microbiota, short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) production and phenolic metabolites production using in vitro digestion and fermentation model.

The results showed that Phytolin™ + Fiber exert synergistic effects on the pig gut microbiota by increasing the relative abundances of Lactobacillus and Catenibacterium, and decreasing the relative abundances of Mogibacterium, Dialister, and Escherichia-Shigella. Phytolin™ + Fiber also significantly increased the total SCFAs production, particularly the propionic and butyric acids. Production of phenolic metabolites related to major polyphenols in Phytolin were tentatively identified. These results suggest that Phytolin™ + Fiber could be beneficial to human colon health given the similarities between pig and human intestine in terms of physiology and microbiome.

In short Phytolin™ + Fiber is good for your gut health !

Technical White Paper Sugarcane Polyphenols and Obesity The Global Obesity Epidemic

A recent review evaluates the effectiveness of natural polyphenolic compounds that are currently used for management of obesity while examining different mechanisms of anti-obesity action associated with enzymes, energy expenditure, appetite suppression, adipocyte differentiation, lipid metabolism and gut microbiota by various natural polyphenols.

Polyphenol Rich Sugarcane Extract Inhibits Bacterial Growth

The anti-bacterial properties of Polyphenol Rich Sugarcane Extract (PRSE) on common human pathogens were studied relating to diseases including food poisoning, tooth decay, acne and severe skin infections using disc/well diffusion experiments. Our findings indicate that PRSE is an efficient antimicrobial, which could be included at differing dosages to target a range of food borne and environmental pathogens.
