BENEO-Institute – knowledge to connect nutrition and health.

The BENEO-Institute facilitates access to the latest scientific research and knowledge concerning physiology and legislation related to BENEO ingredients. With this BENEO supports food and drink manufacturers in innovations that are substantiated with nutritional science.

BENEO-Institute – a network of minds

The BENEO-Institute brings together BENEO’s expertise from within the Nutrition Science, Nutrition Communication and Regulatory Affairs teams, and has been founded and developed by experts coming from different scientific backgrounds such as bio-chemistry, chemistry and nutritional science. This network of intelligence will continue to grow as scientists who already contribute to the BENEO-Institute consult their own scientific network to find solutions to the most challenging questions in the food industry.

Knowledgeable and active in the megatrends of nutrition

Consumers’ health consciousness and expectations towards modern food products are under constant change – worldwide. BENEO-Institute has started early to focus on the global megatrends in nutrition science and food industry:

Experienced in regulatory frameworks worldwide

The food and drink industry is continuously experiencing a number of regulatory changes. The BENEO-Institute takes an active role in monitoring and commenting on the regulatory framework on national and international level. This relates to projects like the Codex Alimentarius’ dietary fibre definition, the European Health Claim Regulation and many more. In addition, the BENEO-Institute will continue its leadership in seeking and achieving regulatory approval for BENEO’s ingredients on a global scale.
