New paediatric research strengthens the research basis related to chicory root fibers (inulin and oligofructose/FOS) and inner protection in kindergarten children!
Brand new study results on the strengthening of the inner protection were presented for the first time by Prof. Decsi, Department of Paediatrics, University of Pécs, Hungary, at the congress of the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) that took place May 25-28, 2016 in Athens.
Research confirms BENEO’s Palatinose™ enhances memory and mood in school-age children
A recent scientific research carried out by Haley Young and David Benton from the Swansea University, Wales, shows that children perform significantly better on mood and memory after eating a breakfast with Palatinose™ compared to glucose.
Studies confirm benefits of BENEO’s prebiotic fibre Synergy1 in reducing risk of diabetes
Two new scientific studies, conducted by Professor Gary Frost from Imperial College London, have shown three major beneficial effects of BENEO’s chicory root fibre Orafti®Synergy1 (oligofructose-enriched inulin) in reducing the risk of diabetes.
Clinical trial confirms: Palatinose™ is well-tolerated in follow-on formula
A randomized double blind control study was conducted with infants in the age of 4 to 8 months. Children received a low-glycaemic follow-on formula with Palatinose™ or a control formula of a higher glycaemic index.Clearly confirmed was the safe use and good acceptability for infants of Palatinose™ in follow-up formula and grown-up milk.
New authorised 13.5 health claim for BENEO’s chicory root fibres
We are pleased to announce that the Standing Committee on Plant, Animals, Food and Feed agreed with the EU Commisssion to authorise a second 13.5 health claim for our chicory root fibres – just three months after receiving the first 13.5 health claim for BENEO's chicory inulin. The recent health claim confirms the sound science of inulin and oligofructose contributing to a better blood glucose management - a key element in the promotion of long-term health from early on! Leading scientists agree that a low glycaemic diet reduces the risk of type II diabetes and helps to control blood glucose levels. BENEO’s inulin and oligofructose, derived from chicory root, allow manufacturers to develop a greater variety of low glycaemic food choices and support the increasing consumers' demand for low glycaemic products.
