CarbExplore Research is a contract research organization for functional food ingredients and nutraceuticals development. The set of available technologies enables enzymatic glycosylation of carbohydrates, and advanced structural analysis and characterization. The glycosylation technologies are used in infant nutrition, in low-caloric sweeteners, materials, and pharmaceuticals. Our team offers the following expertise:

  • Scouting and screening of carbohydrate-active enzymes for specific applications
  • Engineering of substrate-product specificity of glycosylation enzymes
  • Development of prebiotic carbohydrates for food, nutrition, and nutraceuticals
  • Structural and functional characterization of carbohydrate compounds (NMR, MS, HPLC)
  • Monosaccharide composition and linkage analysis
  • High throughput screening in metagenomics, genome mining and enzyme evolution
  • Digestibility studies on (prebiotic) carbohydrates
